Playoffs '09-future (I think we'll be O.K.)

I was thinking about the future of our team and the playoffs. I think we will do okay. We did much better vs. up and coming teams then we did vs. the decliners. Here is the data.

DECLINERS

SanAntonio: L 97-106, L 79-100, L 65-72. 0%

Houston: L 80-89, L 79-89, L 86-95. 0%

Dallas: L 80-90, W 91-82, L 76-96, W 108-105. 50%

Denver: L 93-110, W 116-105, W 99-96, L 103-105 (OT). 50%

Phoenix: L 92-97, 98-111, 91-100. 0%

We have had some problems with veteran playoff teams. Signs of a young team. We will be a year wiser next year.

 

Up-And-Coming Teams

Utah: W 97-89, W 99-91, L 101-111, W 103-89 . 75%

Hornets: L 93-113, W 93-90, W 88-76, L 81-96. 50%

L*kers: L 83-96, W 119-111, L 112-103, W 112-103. 50%

Golden State: W 105-95, W 109-91, L 104-110, L 95-111. 50%

We have not lost the regular season series (this year) to any of these up and comers (who we will be battling in the future.)

We are a young team, and some of these wins were in that amazing stretch, and I realize that the playoffs are a whole different story. However, we will be better next year (LMA & Roy will be in season three & a lot of guys have their "real" breakout season at year three). We will have Oden and Godzilla in the middle swatting layups like flies. And who knows how Rudy will pan out, or if we get an upgrade at the PG. The future looks good my friends. Real good!
