IMO...nothing we do in the regular season...NOTHING...has any bearing on how we fare in the playoffs against anybody. This team is capable of beating ANY team on ANY given night. But guess what...the same can be said of every other team that ends up making the playoffs.
You want a winning record against teams above .500...okay. I'm pretty sure we've got quite a bit of season left to get that for you. We've had some bad breaks, some poor games, and some games when the opposition has gotten some lucky breaks and some outstanding games. It happens. But guess what, it'll even out. It's a looooooooooooooooong season.
And I'm sure you didn't mean it this way...but the phrase "I'm ok with winning 100 games" just cracked me up. It sounded like "Yea...it's decent. I mean, I'll take it I guess. But I expect better." :O)
