I agree 100% with this.
I think that if the goal was to win as many games as possible, they would probably win 50, definitely more than 47 because of those last 6 games. But for example, in the last game of the year against the knicks at MSG, if they come out swinging to give their home fans something to cheer about in their last game, do you think we should play the starters for 42 minutes just to get the 50th win?
I think that those last 6 games are misleading. Unless our bench can win them all on their own, we are probably going to lose 2 of those because we are looking past them.
