I'm not calling us the 2nd best team in the East right , I'm saying if we can finally put 4 good quarters together on a consistent basis, we are a top 2 team in the East. I mean we had you guys down by 14, let you back in, and then got back up by 15 again. We just can't seem to put teams away.
I've said it all along and no one believes me. If we can play up to our potential, we can take the East without a doubt. Point and case (knock on wood) but we're something like 8-1 against the CENTRAL division this season. That's right, one loss in 9 games. We've dominated the toughest division in the East. And all it takes is for us to get on a run and gain confidence. Sunday will be a nice guage to see where we're at though. A win against Detroit and I think you HAVE to put us near the top of the East, regardless of our record. We've knocked off both the Cavs and the Wiz since the All-Star break by double digits.
Anywho, Tyrus Thomas is incredible man. My god. You see that foul he had on Haywood where he jumped over his back off of his missed shot? Did you also see his sick block on Blatche? :shock: This kid has sooooo much upside. In about 2 more years (after this season), I think he's an impact player. Next season he'll be better offensively, the year after that he'll start coming into his own, and by his 4th season... :shock:
