*As it appears it’s indeed a numbers game, little has changed in the aspect of how important it is to make the home court nothing less of a fortress.
*The losing streaks have shown a possible mentality issues for some teams but more than all that losing 10 games plus during the season is ok but watch out for the losing streak.
*Evidently the number nine seed from which you’re getting to watch the playoffs through EuroLeague TV has a four game losing streak however the fact that they’ve managed to win 63% of their home games leaves them with a chance of survival.
*But above all it seems that keeping it cool and not caving when the pressure is applied is probably the most important thing because losing two games in a row might seem or be considered as the beginning of a snow ball\ meltdown however it doesn’t have to be.
