If they win it all this year, that would mean a number of things....
They finally played up to their capabilities.
They played hard, tough defense
They didn't get crushed on the boards
They avg'd under 12 TOs a game
They moved the ball around
They didn't wilt under the pressure in tight games
All these outcomes are predicated on effort, energy, patience, trust, selflessness, mental toughness - all things they CAN control...even if their shots aren't falling. Now, of course, make no mistake....they will have to have hit shots. But all of the above will keep them in games no matter what.
I feel like these intangibles have been inconsistent all year. A major reason why it was frustrating to watch them at times throughout the season. They lived and died by the 3 and were able to beat much of the league because so. But the playoffs are different. We've been exposed because much of the above has been missing. They showed it in spurts. Can they show it over the next few weeks, is the question.
