The Sharks travel to the Surrey Scorchers on Friday (6 p.m. warning) before another long trip to the Plymouth Raiders on Sunday (3 p.m. warning) in their penultimate games of the regular season.
Back-to-back wins last weekend saw the Sheffield Sharks move up to fifth in the BBL with a 14-13 record.
“I would love to think we’ve come a long way, but it’s still a work in progress,” Lyons said.
“We have a lot of confidence in winning these overtime games, but this season everyone’s been a threat and I don’t know if there is a turn because everyone is pushing so hard.”
The Sharks recovered from the disappointment of being caught by Bristol last weekend and demonstrated a different side of their character to stay in the game when they fell behind against Worcester Wolves.
“This team has something that is taken for granted – they have this great self-confidence,” Lyons said.
“They don’t have a defeatist attitude and as long as there is time the guys are going to play hard and give their all.”
“Against Bristol we played better, we controlled a lot of the game. We were probably the strongest team offensively for the most part. We have shown a lot of resilience and heart to stay in control of this game as it could easily have gone the other way.
“[Against Worcester] we didn’t look like the strongest team for much of the game, but we held on to him and finally started. “
