[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Beat Jazz easily, lose to Wiz! : Dudder, all I'm saying is be careful. You are comparing 3 guys that have rings to 3 guys that haven't even sniffed a playoff game. Yes maybe they did ride the coattails of the Big 3 but 2 were starters on that team. The Wiz aren't even considered one of the good up and coming young teams like OKC, Memphis or the Clippers. They beat the C's but I put that one more on the C's than I do the Wiz playing well. RA misses a dunk, PP never even got going and Doc still wanted him to take the last shot (sp!) It should've went inside to KG. No jumpers were going in the entire night. So what do we do, we take a jumper to try and win the game.

KG, Pierce, and Ray had ZERO rings before they played together.
Always interesting how on some nights the jumpers go in but on other nights "no jumpers were going in the entire night"...... can we at least attempt to attribute that just on very rare occasions that maybe perhaps just slightly that it HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE OTHER TEAM????????????
BiasLewis - you above most others I expect you not to fall into the Cs are th Globetrotters and they play the Washington Generals every night and the script says they will wing?
They play other teams and other teams create match up problems.
You may remember a couple of years ago when Gilbert Arenas won several games on last second shots - was it because the refs or shots were just not falling or was it because Rondo and D West simply could not stop him?
I would not consider the Wiz an up and coming team either but when the Cs are missing Shaq on the second night of a back to back it is not far reaching to suggest that Blatche, McGee, Wall, and a couple of other guys are good matchups.
These nights are going to happen and Doc basically came out and admitting taking games last year to manage minutes, so losing to the Wiz is really no big deal in the big scheme of things.
As far as I am concerned they still have the best record because the Spurs are one and done and that gives the Cs the home court throughout.
