I know injuries are a problem and Rose needs to get healthy and back into playing shape. But this team doesn't seem to have the energy they played with. They'll still get up for the big games like against the Heat last week. But they have to destroy a team like the Wizards and beat New York rather than go to OT and lose like they did on Easter. They need to play with that same energy again soon or they could be upset in the first round especially if they play the Knicks.
They've gotten comfortable. They know they pretty much have the 1 seed on lock, and just very lazy on Defense now. Even without Rose and Deng, no way in hell we should have lost that game, even the pistons game was atrocious. They pretty much just want the playoffs to begin, and coasting it out, but I don't approve of this way of thinking, neither does Thibs.
