I don't let the scores blind me to the underlying pictures.

Unlike NJ, their profile is a team that is playing well but not getting the bounces, and once that readjusts they will go back to winning and I see them as likely to win their division, although this unseemly, and largely undeserved, streak of losses, will make them look worse than they are on the final standings, unless they end up stealing a lot of games they should have lost. That hasn't happened in a while now has it? But it happened all the time last year and all the time during the playoffs.

This whole thread is another of those nonsensical panicked reactions that happen during a slump. As if the last ten games -- and, I hasted to add, the FINAL SCORES of the last ten games -- were actually representative of the team's actual ability.
