An equally logical argument could be made as follows -- If they had lost, and Zion is still out, they could be doubting themselves a bit without him.

It's amateur psychology hour, and I don;'t really think either matters very much. Duke will be just as hard to beat on Monday, whether the had won or lose, IMP.

But the correct answer is for anything involving Duke - it's always better for Duke to lose

Sometimes this stuff is overblown but we are talking about likely the best collection of NBA talent to step on a college floor and are the road team. You don't want them after a loss. I was rooting hard for them to pull it out. Barrett and Reddish won't be that hot and who knows if Zion plays and if he does is he effected at all?

As I said in the other thread those three should go 1-3 I'd be furious if I was a fan of a team with a top 3 pick and the GM chose anyone else.

FSU was aggressive on the glass and got a ton of buckets as a result, I don't see us doing that so we're gonna have to shoot well/move on offense to have a chance of winning

Maybe they don't slump because they are great? instead let's go its because they play all angry and feisty and other crazy stuff after a loss.
You're the only person here who has used the word "angry."

It's a pretty well-established idea at all levels of play that you don't want to catch a good team after a loss. If you've never played a sport, maybe this seems like a myth. But if you have, I'm curious why you'd discount the idea that good teams tend to practice and play with renewed focus after a loss.
