I've mentioned it before. I think we really do have something special going on with this team. They are deep, and Frank has most players doing almost exactly what is expected, despite the shortened off-season. Teammates seem to genuinely like each other, and have self-confidence, but not over-the-top bravado. The team plays with discipline, but if I have one criticism that still persists after the Bobcats game, it's that there are some players that will still pick up silly technical fouls. Don't argue with the refs! Simple as that!
I see a big test this week with Philly, Altanta and Boston. Philly also only has 2 losses, and like us, most of their wins came against bad teams. A win on the road against Philly will be huge to help establish the early pecking order.
I think I'm looking forward to facing Atlanta more than I am the rematch vs. Boston. Atlanta is 1-1 against the Bulls and the Heat, having lost both games on the road and they were not blowouts. I think how we play this week will be a good barometer for us.
