It's a lot harder to make up lost ground than people think.
Agreed. 4 pts. doesn't seem like a lot at first glance, but when you look historically at what it takes to overcome a slow start, it is. All the teams in the top 8 aren't going to stop and lose and wait until we catch up before winning again. Pretty soon that gap is going to be 6, then 8, then 10 pts. And we'll still hear 'we're not out of it', but we are. Plus there's also four other teams to jump over to get into 8th. I mean just look at the way this team is playing. There's no way we're going to make the playoffs in this shortened season with only 32 games left. To continue to pull for this team to win at this point is cruel and unusual self-inflicted punishment.
