What you're saying happens a lot too. For example, the Suns were shooting 55% in the first half against the Nets last night. I wasn't mad because I knew a team like the Suns wouldn't continue to shoot 55% for the game. Behold, the Suns came back to reality and lost. But normally when a bad team is within striking distance with 5 minutes or less to go, they gain a ton of confidence and win the game. It's happened a lot this year already and in years past.
