Team defense night in night out is a beautiful thing and makes it unlikely we are going to get blown out by anyone.  Outside of the top echelon teams it means we are probably going to be in every game.  What a change from the Melo years.

I wasn't sure about the Derek Rose move when I first heard about it but it seems obvious in retrospect.

I am happy that my team for once is not the poster child for the very worst-run, bereft-of-talent, leaderless joke of a franchise which every other NBA fan in the league can point to, snigger a bit and say at least we are not the Knicks.

Everything else is just gravy right now.

I am happy my team is a pain in the ass to play against.

It is dangerous to get ahead of ourselves but that said, there is nothing terribly scary in the next 8 games.  This team could make some hay.

We finally pulled out of last place in team scoring.  I'd like to see that trend continue a bit.  The shooting feels very inconsistent from one quarter to the next.  RJ and IQ need to get their pct. up closer to 50%. 

Man, if we had a SF who could score (Kawhi, are you listening)...

That’s the big thing we will be looking for next summer.  A legit 3 and D SF

What is clear from the Orlando result and the Golden State result last night is that we are very much a work in progress.  Getting better? Certainly.  We can complete with pretty much everyone but there is almost no team that we "should" beat every night of the week.  

That part comes next.
