There's no more time for pacing ourselves. We can't be cavalier about this. If we're going to be bullish about our chances, we'll need to get to work. We can't rely on gimmicks or pulling tricks out of a wizards hat. It all starts Tuesday, and if we don't flat out want it more, then we'll be 86'ed by the 76ers.
Somewhere hidden in the bad puns is a point. Its gut check time. Gotta want it more. Iverson looked at our bench at the end of the last game and said "that's one closer." We need to look at them at the end of the game (not the beginning - see the Knicks game for why) and tell them, "that's one more closer to clinching."
