    Don't care what they say, but the numbers speak for themselves in that video:

    Last 11 games, also w/ defensive numbers and NBA stats to compare:
    9-2 - Best record
    Off efficiency: 3rd - 1st (NBA.com)
    Def efficiency: 10th (NBA.com)
    Net rating: 4th

    This is with wins over Lakers, Mavs, Pelicans, Jazz & Celtics.

    I think the off def rating will jump again if we calculate it from when green and MCK begin playing, noticeable difference when ROCO came and more improvement once green and DMC were inserted into the roster.

    I will tip cap to mavs and pelicans since I believe that are both in the southwest division.
    For Lakers, Ok, Westbrooks scores 41 against the Lakers. Will that happen again? Uhmm it happened eight years ago against lebron. maybe but most likely...NO!

    For Jazz, caught Jazz on a back to back night with Clarkson recovering from injury.
    For Celtics, Celtics have kemba walker in and out of their lineup. That's a toss-up from east conference. Credit given to Covington for the two blocks on walker late in the game.

    We haven’t been at full strength in forever. Not trying to hear them excuses. We don’t get them.

    Don't give any excuses or regrets for the capeala trade after rockets get swept in the first round.

    After the Rockets lose in the first round, just promptly fire Mike Dantoni and don't ever believe in small ball again!

    Capela is at the hawks now, you should head to their forums. Your contributions are A+

    Aaaaaaaand with a horrible lopsided loss thrown in there that skews the numbers. Yes, it did happen so it is relevant, but it is very much an outlier. So those numbers would be even more incredible otherwise

    This is seriously like some sort of alternate universe or something. Not long ago every thread was bombarded by a troll who hated capela and went to extremes about him. Now we're dealing with a new troll who sticks his nose in every thread with his horrible takes... and today I see him proclaim how we are doomed WITHOUT capela LOL

    Maybe KD can come back like that.

    Russ has shown the way.

    I used to take that smoothie dude more seriously when I didn't realize he was a flat-out troll...at this point it's pretty damn obvious. At least he's not "Joe Smith"
