They wouldn't have gathered "all this momentum" from the start. It was a very difficult early schedule, the refs still wouldn't have given the raps respect/fair foul calling, there were a bunch of new guys playing big minutes, and some of them were rookies who have to learn how to play in NBA, and the starting PG was new. Maybe a couple games difference, but not like they'd be near 0.500 record.
