These final games of the season are all starting to look alike. We keep it close in the first half, get methodically worn down by the opposition in the second half, make a mini-run sometime in the fourth quarter then eventually lose by about 10 points. That happenned last night against the Lakers, four nights ago against the Bobcats and six nights ago against the Warriors. With each one of those losses, the chance at finishing the season with a winning record dwindles.
But hey, at least Travis Outlaw had some nice plays last night! In fact, Outlaw's high-glass And1 and the dunk over Pau Gasol made NBA TV's Top 10 Plays of the Day. It's hardly as satisfying as actually winning a game, but at least it's something.
