Wow. 8 points in the third quarter? Really? 23 points in the entire second half? This is a serious team? While I admit it was nice to see them play a good half of basketball, it's alarming how fast it all fell apart.
At this point, considering they're having trouble beating the Bobcats, and are losing to good teams left and right, you are going to have a very difficult time convincing me that this is more than the average team we thought they were at the beginning of the season, and that they rode a hot streak to a decent record out of the gate.
Right now, I can't envision this team doing anything in the playoffs, if they can't start beating playoff-class teams. They'll probably make it, by riding their hot start, but this is not a team that's winning a round in the playoffs.
I don't know what's wrong at this point, and I'm not sure how to fix it, but Spencer Hawes isn't the savior.
OK. Rant over...now get off my lawn, you kids!!
