Perspective

Since our exciting victory at home over Oklahoma City on January 7th, we have performed especially well over the ensuing 39-game stretch.  During that two and half month run, we emerged with a 22-17 record including an impressive 16-4 mark at home.

Prior to last night’s game, we sustained an average margin of victory of 2.9 points per game in a 38-game span, which would translate to roughly 49 wins if maintained over a full season.  We are one of only 12 teams this season to hold a margin of victory of 2.9 points per game or better during a 38-game stretch.  Every other team on that list is currently in a playoff position, and we have defeated each of those teams except for San Antonio and Indiana. (Teams with at least a 2.9 point-per-game margin of victory over 38 games this season: Brooklyn, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Indiana, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis, Miami, New York, Oklahoma City, San Antonio and Washington.)

I realize we have to exhibit this type of play throughout an entire season, but this is a sample size that is worth noting.
