THE HUMAN HIGHLIGHT BLOG'S PRE-GAME PEP TALK:
So as we look back to the beginning of the season and where we stand today with the good guys---we see that nothing has progressed, little has improved, and with every passing (or in the Hawks case, dribbling and draw the defense) game the hope that something might fades a little more.

They are locked into what they are---and what they are is an extremely talented team with many areas of opportunity---but little desire to change what they do in order to get there. They will be content to advance as far as this approach can take them.
Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

Bret, I just noticed you had this on your pregame thread---thank you--I laughed heartily at the "Pep Talk" angle---It's funny because it's all true---
