Hey guys, don't look now, but this discussion takes on different meaning now. We may have no choice in the matter. When you lose close games as a habit, and lose to the Thunder at all, you are just playing yourself out of the playoffs. Unless the Sixers get better quick, if the Bulls and Bucks put together any kind of a run, we are talking about the draft and free agency, and watching 8 other teams in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
And getting better quick may mean getting more out of Dalembert. Now that is the definition of trying to get blood out of a stone.
