Our conference is much more difficult than that of the East and it's been that way for the better part of 2 decades now. I'm not 100% but I believe a few years ago there was a 50 win team that did NOT make the playoffs, it was either Houston or Phoenix, or they had like 47 wins or something. So to get 50 and be in the middle of the pack is a good accomplishment.
Hell we got 3 teams fighting for that last playoff spot in our conference and we may have 3 teams in our own division make the playoffs, that's amazing!
I will agree that we should have had 50 wins a couple weeks ago, but I am still confident our in our team and I think we still look good. Players may be a little tired, if we can try to get some of our better players more rest before the playoffs and still hold onto the 4 seed, or even the 3 seed I say do it. Were in the playoffs right now, there is no reason to try to fight 150% right now to hope we can move up.
I'd rather have a healthy Griffin and CP3, not to mention others if we play Memphis again.
