Why can't we beat Orlando? Other teams that we've trashed have beaten them; Indiana, Toronto, Memphis, and tonight the boston celtics are a few points from blowing the game open. The hawks are one of few teams Orlando beat this whole month of January. Are they smarter? Or are the hawks just dumb? I can only guess that it's because the hawks are horrible at defending the shooters and they too many jump shots. That is something they do in every game unless (every blue moon) they push the ball in transition.
If we get blown out in Orlando again....what will that mean? I for one never believe in absolutes in the NBA or any sport for that matter. But ever since last January Orlando has beaten us silly, even in the preseason.
