I Still Believe!

Yes, we lost to the Clippers. But, consider the circumstances.

This was, effectively, the last game of an eight game road trip. It was also the second night of a back-to-back.

At any point in the game, we had at least two rookies on the floor. Many times, three rookies on the floor.

Do you think I am going to freak out over a Double-OT loss right now? NO! We are the youngest team in the NBA and we have played, statistically, the most difficult schedule of any NBA team this season to date... and, we are at .600 !!!

I was at the game, and loved every minute of it despite the loss. Brandon was frickin amazing. Greg was all over the boards. LaMarcus hit his shots. Rudy did all the little things he does.

And, most important of all... Nate was keeping them all out there on the floor for most of the 4th and both OT's. He is putting his trust in them and letting them play together. You are witnessing the early stages of our big three (or four.) Did you see the box score?

Roy: 38 points, 9 assists... Oden: 15 points, 15 boards (6 offensive)... Aldridge: 22 points, 6 boards, 3 blocks... Rudy: 5 points, 11 boards, 4 assists

This is only the beginning! The Blazers are learning and growing. There are going to be some tough lessons along the way, but that is part of the fun.

Those guys were just plain gassed out. They've got three days off now to get some well deserved rest.

Remember... Be patient... and, enjoy the ride!
