December 12th, 2008 – Less than one year ago. This is the post game thread after the loss to the Clippers. After that game, we had lost three in a row and four out of the last five, putting us at 15-10. Ironically, it's still more cheery about the Blazers than it has been lately. Though some of the same old arguments are back there. Perhaps we had more homers last year. Or maybe our expectations today have gone up higher than the ability of our team.
