    Default Brightside

    Cleveland has Lost 6/8 over the same period so they aren't exactly running away with the conference either.

    I bet none of the 6-10 seeds in the east would still want to play Cleveland in the 1st round whereas all of those teams would likely have the Raptors as their #1 choice.

    The ONLY brightside to this is our picks improving, nothing else.

    I will admit, it does ease the pain to see cleveland struggling and lebrons twice weekly mini-meltdown post game

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    5 and counting...is this a repeat of two seasons ago with first round sweep by Wizards?

    LOL, try having a little more faith in our team guys. You spend way too much time and energy on this team to be so down on them.

    I'm not sure who said it on the radio the other day but it was at the 3 game point of the losing streak. 3 games prior to that point, we had just finished the first half of the schedule with a franchise best 28-13. And that was against a pretty tough schedule. Then we lose three games to bad teams and all of the sudden the best ever first half of a season is a washout? Those three games were bad but then we lose back to back games against Spurs-Grizz by a total of 5 points. We were missing our "best" player for the last 2 games and you could argue we were missing out best defensive player (who actually gets minutes) for the first three games of the losing streak. All that said, a win over the Bucks would do a lot to right the ship from a fan's perspective.

    Honestly, the team has looked much better over the past couple games and I'm straight up expecting a 6 game win streak here (with maybe a loss in BOS, but 5 of 6 at least).

    A little bit of humility is a good thing, they need a kick in the butt to remind them that they could easily bounce out of the first round of the playoffs if they don't get their head out of their ass and start playing good defense.

    DeMar is getting some rest.

    The roster is getting closer to full strength.
