    That pace stat is an absolute killer! When yur game is so bad on all other metrics, shouldn’t you push the pace to give yourself more of a chance?

      In a vacuum, that should reduce your odds. It gives more possessions which increases the opportunity for regression to the mean (like having a best of 7 playoff series instead of a best of 5). However, pushing the pace won’t happen in a vacuum, so if your personnel is better suited to a fast and wild game, go for it.
