If a win streak before the all-star break doesn't matter, why should a lose streak matter? You guys were all going nuts during the 6-game lose streak... does it not matter? Something's not symmetrical here.

Losing streaks are always tough. But, if you're talking less than 10 games before the all-star break, and there aren't multiples of them (as in one really bad stretch), and aside from the streak the team looks good, they usually don't matter.

The trick is to figure out the true pattern from the outliers.

Stepping up in the playoffs wins chips. I wish rondo phoned it in harder during the regular season this year, maybe he'd be healthy.

We don't know how well this team will do without him. But there is no argument that playoff Rondo isn't a good thing.

Well, he got hurt in a game that was a blowout, and then they let the team get back into the game.

So if him and we actually played hard from the get go in the 2nd half, the injury might have not happened, so...

It's called confirmation bias.

  The team fell flat in the second half and gave up a big lead, Doc stemmed the tide by taking out all of the starters except for Rondo. One would assume that if the other starters played as hard then as they have since we'd have been into Gino time in the 3rd quarter.
