That's almost exactly what happened when OKC lost to the Wizards last week, and pretty much the same thing happened when the Pistons beat the Heat. OKC went cold, let the Wizards hang around, and they hit quite a few big timely shots down the stretch. And against the Heat, it was just Will Bynum turning into God, and making everything he threw-up down the stretch.
It's dangerous for these "elite" teams to let these bad teams hang around and have confidence and think they can win. But it happens and really isn't a big deal.
