Who is the Blazers most effective and dangerous offensive weapon at the end of quarters? I think most of would agree that is Brandon Roy. However, typically at the end of the 1st and 3rd quarters, Roy is watching Sergio dribble out the clock from the bench. Almost invariably, the Blazers walk away with no points in that situation. Potentially, the Blazers are missing out on 4-6 points per game, because Roy is not on the floor for those last possessions of the 1st and 3rd quarters. At the end of the 1st quarter against the Wolves was a perfect example of this. The Blazers had the last possession of the quarter, but Roy was out. Sergio dribbles the ball and passes to Frye for a contested 3 pointer that misses. Why not call a timeout in that situation and substitute Roy in? It's not likely he is going to pick up a foul in that situation and the liklihood of coming away with points is increased. While the end of the game situations are very important....getting those extra points at the end of the 1st and 3rd quarters can make the difference in the game.
