    Their home record is only 5-5 over the last 10 games so they have come back to earth.

    Well, the first game of this month was a lead ballon. To many days off and rusty or bad motivation to play defense? This going to be a bad record month.

    Spurs at home
    Dallas
    Brooklyn
    Cleveland
    One of Philly or Boston

    It's possible. Not likely, but possible.

    Well we are 1-2 so far right on pace for 3-6 if we get lucky on the road. Lillard last second hero shot was not a very good basketball percentage shot. Pretty much complete melt down in forth quarter. This team is not built on consistency. You never know what you are going to get. Irishtrader would have liked to have seen a more significant trade before the trade deadline,

    Well we are 1-3 and soon to be 1-4 going on a four game road trip. Poor defense and lack of a consistent play from a power forward and small forward will make this four game road trip a disaster for the month of February. This team has fundamental flaws that need to be fixed. This caked has baked and consequently is a half baked team as presently comprised.

    Do us a favor and just make a post about us losing the next 10 games and let this shit thread die. We saw we lost, no need to remind us. You could have put this in the game thread son.

    We all are, but what are you trying to accomplish in this thread? You wait til we lose and then bump it? You think these nut jobs on here who are on the ledge whenever we lose need you waiting til the next morning to post some DOOMSDAY opinion? How horrible we are or how bad it's gonna get? What's your gameplay FAMS?

    You look at things game to game. I look at things in month long blocks in terms of how this team performs. Your view through your glasses is different from mine which looks at a block of games versus one game. To each his own and hell I wish we had a better team but the reality is if lucky we are one and done in playoffs.
