Why? We barely won the games we played against Atlanta and NY, and we got crushed by Milwaukee, all games played full strength. Other than Miami, I doubt we are heavy favourites against any of these teams ... A fully motivated NJ team can destroy us, they have Harris, Carter
and Jefferson, all capable of destroying us in the paint.
But what I'm most afraid is the next 2 weeks. It's very possible (even very likely) that we will lose 5 of the next 6 games (against Utah, Sacramento, Detroit, Denver and Cleveland). Combined with our current 2 of 9 streak, that will put us at 3-15 over the past 18. There will be a lot of pressure on the players, and we are already starting to see some friction.
