They had 2 hot streaks at the two easiest part of their schedule. PJ is a terrible coach as well, so they'll fall back to Earth again. If not, then it's the time to give them their props.

We should take every team seriously. No reason not to.

We'd have to be stupid not to take them seriously. I watched the game against the Thunder and they just have so many weapons offensively, especially with Deron making himself relevant again. Everyone likes to rip on their bench but guys like Blatche, Brooks and Humphries are solid. They are definitely a team take note of.

Their schedule since Avery got fired:

Beat Bobcats by 16 at home
Barely beat Cavs at home by 3
Lose by 31 in San Antonio
Beat Thunder by 17 in OKC (Very impressive win)
Need Double OT to beat the Wizards in DC
Beat Kings by 20 at home
Win by 20 in Philly
Beat Suns by 20 at home
Beat Pacers by 11 at home
Beat Raptors at home
Split home and home with Hawks

The teams they've beaten over this stretch are a combined 166-232, and that's including OKC's record, best in the league.

So what do you see as PJ's weaknesses as a coach?

Look at his record as a head coach, and you'll see this question answering itself.

PJ did coach Durant and the Thunder to a 1-12 record.

When Jason Kidd lead them to the NBA Finals a decade or than less than a decade ago, the one with kenyon martin, lucius harris, kerry kittles, jason kidd,......i think tthey deserve respect for that run. they went to the finals twice y'know.

But that was a decade ago. now, i just dont care about them. haha
