Who understand the mathematics of home court advantage because that's tangible but can't understand the intangibles of the value priced. Well the rest more important Armenian argument to to a game seven if you are healthy or Perot or rested so you can just leave -- there. Then we're really talking about one -- of -- today from one game the whole series in the hole playoff rail because this would be the only series we would have home court so. Through the eleven and fifteen stretch. It was pretty easy decision America. After going through this gauntlet that you just said this is twelve and seventeen nights. The only break you got a schedule your comes now with a couple spaced out games for the playoffs so this isn't shutting guys down from the Unisys to sort of play each game and almost takes each individual guy separately. Yeah this is. A scheduled break -- because the way you do schedule. Played out teams -- have a lot more than some -- for some of the three we only have to rest of this. Are we don't play again until Tuesday so when you -- spectrum we played on Wednesday and Thursday off you get Friday off Saturday Sunday Monday.

Potentially helping us right away and and that's what we're looking -- you never know. Our government did it and that's okay with him that. His challenges whether it's. You'll more than likely percentage -- be back here next week faced -- -- -- even as bizarre as this game is tonight not see. A team -- bound plane playoffs right before yeah I would I actually -- This but now it happens and that's just the way it is I'm sure both coaches through the same way you don't want about the secret but there's no secret -- in January.
