Most people would agree that the seven best teams in the NBA (excluding Boston) are Cleveland, Orlando, Utah, Denver, Dallas, Atlanta and the Lakers.
The C’s combined record against those teams: 4-11.
One of those four wins was on opening night.
One was on Nov. 11 (at home against the Jazz).
One was on Christmas—two months ago now—in Orlando.
And one was last week at Los Angeles, against a Laker team missing Kobe Bryant. (Albeit a Laker team that played quite well while missing Kobe Bryant).
Of course, the C’s have dealt with injuries (they were missing Paul Pierce last night and on Christmas), but the record is the record.
