We've blown leads before. ORL and HOU are two i can recall.
It's not a good thing but I remember the 07-08 team did the same thing. In the "MVP" game at the end of the season the Lakers had a 30 point lead on the Hornets and it went all the way down 1 by the 3 minute mark of the 4th quarter. And then we all know what happened in the Finals
Teams that rely on hot shooting to get a big lead and expect it to carry them the rest of the game will go through this. The problem is our defense is so bad no lead is big enough.
