The Cats finish the week 1-3, a disappointing stretch which included:
- A flat and unfocused loss at home to the surprising Suns, 91-98.
- A twenty point beat-down of the Eastern Conference doormat Bucks in Milwaukee, 96-72.
- Another flat and unfocused loss at home to the lowly Celtics, 86-96.
- Three good quarters and a horrific fourth in a blowout loss at home to Indiana, 74-99.
The LEASTERN CONFERENCE
We’re approaching the quarter season mark and it is already quite apparent that the Eastern Conference stinks somethin’ fierce. Incoming commish Adam Silver may crave parity but right now he has the AL East. Indiana and Miami might both get to sixty five wins playing amongst this ragtag group. Atlanta, currently the Conference’s third seed, is 8-8 and sports a negative point differential. Tied with them is Chicago, who just lost Derrick Rose for the season (again).
Washington, Detroit and Charlotte have had a few nice moments over the past month but they aren’t going to keep either the Pacers or Heat up at night. As for the rest of the lot…ugh. Fair warning: We’re in for a long…
