      To take that point further, teams with players who can create their
      own shot easily (iversons, boston) are more affected by odds than by
      defense. Iverson is usually hot or cold by luck (or some other
      unquantifiable reason) and not by defense. remember Boston's big
      comeback against nj in the playoffs. they shoot a lot of threes and
      when they are hot they are great and when not they will lose to
      toronto.
