These same threads have been popping up for the past few years. I think chances are pretty good that we'll advance further than them yet again when the games start to really matter.
Perhaps we will. I haven't given up on the season at all, by any stretch.
Maybe chemistry is the reason for the Spurs looking better, or us biding our time until the playoffs, or our style of play being more conducive to the playoffs, or coaching, or some other reason. Regardless, there is some reason(s) and it is reasonable to speculate what that might be.
I don't know if I'd say "biding our time" exactly, but I think you've hit on something when you say that this a team that is "more conducive to the playoffs."
I'm convinced that we'll find a nice rhythm and start reeling off some wins before long in the regular season, as well.
I do admire the Spurs. That's a good franchise, with a good coach, and a good core group of players. Hats off to them for continuing to stay relevant long after many thought they would be on the downswing.
