My biggest take away from this game is that yes we can compete with anyone on any given night, but why is it that it seems many of the players have such huge peaks and valley in regards to emotion and success from one game to the next? It seems to me that some are thinking too much and just not taking advantage of their given skill set night in and night out.
I still say an offense that has a guy like DJ Wilson, MAAR and Irvin/Robinson standing still more often than not can be improved upon no matter what the efficiency numbers say.
As for the defense, not sure if it was the "white collar" comments but whatever it was I am happy they all seem to be putting forth their best effort more often than not. And who would have thought that this team would prefer a game with more physicality?
