I flew out to pdx and watched the game.
This is quick because I'll be boarding the plane soon.
#1. Thanks for the win blazers. My brother was with me and hasn't been a fan of basketball since drexler got his ring with houston. His eyes were glowing after the game followed by descriptions such as "they scored and we scored and they scored and free throws and WE WON!" (he's got a lot to learn.
#2. I understand the complaints about lack of hustle. I didn't see guys moving like I would have liked.
#3. Some serious airballs by Webster.
#4. We pass GREAT on the perimeter. @#$@#$ attack the @#$@#$ basket!!! We play FAR too much on the perimeter.
#5. Unselfish is nice, but we need one or two players that decide to just attack and shove it down the other teams throat. Roy was able to break free and get in close and then he'd pass to LMA. It was beautiful. However, He really needs to attack the basket himself as well.
#6. Sergio... wow... 2 minutes left to play and I started screaming for time out. Nate listened and put in blake. Thank god.
#7. Our guys really don't seem to have much height on the dunks.
Summary of my thoughts?
We have a long ways to go folks. After watching that game and the patterns/flow... I feel like down grading my projected wins. I feel that something really needs to be altered. I know we won, but I wasn't impreseed by what I saw on the court.
Still, they won on my brother's birthday and I greatly appreciate it.
