    Thumbs down This team has quit (2014 edition)

    I think it's finally safe to say that the effort and heart of this team is in question right now. These guys are playing nothing like they did through the first half of the season, especially on the defensive end. They're barely getting by the absolute worst teams in the league and getting blown out by everyone else.

    We've heard all season about how important the #1 seed is, but if it weren't for the Heat hitting the skids lately as well that goal would be a distant memory.

    I know we still have a month before the playoffs start, but I'm starting to lose faith that we're going to turn it around.

    This type of play you have been talking about has been going on for well over a month. The concern is justified. We do just enough to beat bad teams and routinely get beat by good ones.

    I think Vogel might have lost the team. He spoke about boxing out and how they spend 2 days last week working on Boxing out for rebounds. Yet this team does not box out. I mean if you can spend that kind of practice time focusing on one aspect of the game. Then the team comes out and fails to do it....they aren't listening anymore.

    Vogel seemed to take offense at the suggestion the team wasn't playing hard when asked a few days ago. Well they aren't playing hard tonight. He's either not coaching or they're tuning him out and doing what they want. We have 16 more games to get focused. It's time for Bird to intervene.

    LOL I needed a good laugh. Anyone who believes this is crazy. I guess the Heat have quit as well. I guess every team in the league has quit.

    Cool, then I guess we don't have to go to games or watch anymore. Makes it easier for the security guards and workers.

    We quit, but just erased a 25 point deficit tonight in Detroit? I think this tread is good actually. All the annoying pessimists can just stay in here and complain. Go Pacers

    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    I was going to start a thread about how there is no quit in this team, but thought it might be a little over the top.

    This game pushes us to a 3.5-game lead over Miami with just 16 games remaining.

    Hopefully halftime is the turning point for this team, and they start actually playing basketball again. With how the team has been playing, and being down almost 20 at half, I don't consider this an overreaction or a kneejerk.

    Last year's "This team had quit" thread was awesome and carried us through the ECFs. Let's hope that it carries us a couple steps further this year.

    Thanks for the reverse jinx, Shade. We always need that

    That's the fastest effect it's ever had. Wow.
