Default Thorpe's ESPN Chat Wrap - Raptor Related

Just saw this at ESPN:

Meanwhile, the Cavs don't blow teams out but are 18-6 in close games. Since the teams may meet in the playoffs, which stat, if either, holds more relevance?

SportsNation David Thorpe: (11:08 AM ET ) John thinks winning close games is mostly luck. I agree to some extent, but not in the playoffs. Edge to Cleveland.
I hope and pray we don't play LeBron and the Cavs in the first round of the playoffs. But anyhow, do you guys think winning close games is mostly do to luck?
