One of the many things about the playoffs that is hard to describe to casual fans is the unrelenting nature of games. They just keep coming. That there were two days between game one and game two then again with game two and game there was a relief. There was time to process, assess, and think about what’s coming next.
With one day between a Friday night game and a Sunday night game, there’s not near as much time for reflection. There’s time mainly for reaction.
