Just a hypothesis at this point. Starting from Camby's quote after the last game from Quick's article: ""I think we are wearing teams down," Camby said, crediting the team's preseason conditioning."
This is an interesting idea. If the Blazers are wearing down opponents for end-of-game runs, I think it's a brilliant idea. The question is how are they doing that? Is it staying in motion? But the Blazers haven't been as consistent at that as I would like. Is it pressuring on defense? Well, sometimes, it doesn't look like the defense is trying hard enough.
So what is it? We have the results, but I haven't pinned down the cause. And as much fun as it is to say, "It's because we're awesome," I was looking for more than that. Something to point to. Someting that clearly shows that this is what's happening. Because I'd like to see it to keep happening all year long.
