Mike D'Antoni: "We closed the gap [on the Warriors] only because I feel that we're better this year last year. Now, we'll see if they're better. They might be better, so maybe it's an illusion. That's the reason we can say that. We just feel like we're a better team this year. Now, we've got a ways to go. This is not going to be the same team it is in May. It shouldn't be. If it is, we're in trouble."
