I agree with Kane3387. I too see some reason for optimism. Firstly, the defense has been pretty solid since getting off to that horrendous start to the season where we seemingly couldn't guard anyone. Surprisingly, even during our 5 game losing streak, our defense has been well above league average.
The problem right now is obviously the offense. I don't buy that we don't have the personnel to play better on that end of the court. Over the course of the last five games, the shooting percentages have been downright ugly: 41% from the field, 26% from three, and even the free throws have been bad at 71%. Now, we can blame the quarterback for not running the show properly and we can blame the coach for running a crappy system, or we can say that our scorers are just too old, but we have been getting pretty much the same looks we normally get, and just missing. We won't continue shooting those percentages. Those are bound to come up to close to normal. Once they do, we won't all of a sudden start leading the league in offensive efficiency with our off-the-ball-screen, half court, jump shooting, no offensive rebounding offense, but if we can keep our D elite, we'll be the team that we all expected us to be to start the season.
I know things seem desperate to many right now, but I definitely see things pointing in the right direction. We'll start hitting some shots soon, and once we do, we'll be a better team.
