If you brought this kind of energy, effort, and focus every night, The Blazers would probably have 3-4 more wins right now. Oh yes, I am talking to the man who went to the free throw line 36 times in the final two games of the season last year.
By the way Blazer fans, if you look at the free throw discrepancies in the Blazer losses this year, you'll see that the Blazers aren't getting to the line and their opponents are. People tend to forget that the good players and good teams make a living from the line. 20-30% of the points teams score come from the line. Just one more reason we are 5 wins and 10 losses (or whatever our record is now).
