In general I feel like the team could lean on its big horses a lot more than it has. I'm not sure what the plan is, maybe they are looking longer-term. But you'd have to think that if they got those guys the minutes their skill level warrants, they would have a better chance of breaking through in games like this. Maybe they feel like they are playing with house money at this point and being sure not to expose the big three to unnecessary risk?
I'm gonna say...the flu has been spreading around and they're all kinda sick. That's the explanation I'm going with
