we've played like a .500 team this season but we've been extremely unlucky, from the FTs missed in Philly, to the refs making mistakes in crucial moments, to guys making improbable shots and finally to key players having horrible games (bargnani on sunday, derozan and lowry in detroit etc). About the only lucky thing that happened to us was Inidiana missing 4 shots in 15 seconds.
Eventually our luck will turn and our record will improve. I just hope not too much damage was done already, although looking at the standings, we're not that far behind. If we could maintain a 5 game margin to the 8th spot at the end of December, between the much easier schedule and the hopefully better luck, we'll have a shot I think.
