I nake the case that the very reason for the Daugherty - Price run was that they DID blow it up and sell out for lottery picks instead of trying to scrape along for the 8th seed.
If you recall, the '85 Karl team was a collection of scrappy vets and so-so draft holdovers. they started slowly and ended up giving the Greatest Collection of Players in NBA history on one team one hell of a challenging series, causing them to expend enough energy to destroy what would have been a 3 peat run for them.
But interesting stat about that series, IIRC we outscored Boston by a point for the series while losing 3 games to 1.
And having 1 dude blow up for 120 points during Fantasy Football doesn't help you in the other 15 weeks he gets -6. But it is an interesting point considering how lopsided a few of those games were.
