Did I see it coming? Perhaps. Did I think it would be this bad? No. Getting slammed by Miami again was foreseeable, but getting trounced by the Cavs? Ouch.
Does anyone still think this team is a contender? I don’t think so. I don’t think even they believe it anymore.
That said, I don’t think it’ll be like last season, when this team crumbled so badly that it got Jim O’Brien fired. They’ll bounce back, but whether they’ll keep winning at the previous rate is a big question mark.
The good thing is that they get a quick opportunity to redeem themselves, with the third game of their back-to-back-to-back tomorrow against the New Jersey Nets, a team they’ve beaten twice already this season.
Will the streak continue? I hope not.
Can’t believe I’m typing this but I’m going to go check out some Jeremy Lin hightlights.
