Sarge gets tested

This has to be the single biggest test coach Nate has faced since joining the Blazers.  I think he has done a great job getting this young team to perform, but now we get to see whether he can compete with x's and o's.  I have always had my issues with his playcalling and rotation, it was down right terrible on Saturday.  Frye!!! Really???? Hmmmm....that game reminds me of the L.A. opening game.  Nate seemed to falter then by pulling Nic for Travis.  This time it was messing with the rotation that has been winning.  I know everyone says the confidence of this team comes from Roy but I think Roy's confidence comes from Nate.  I think he was nervous and let that get to him.   Lets see how Nate stacks up with a high quality coach like Adelman, you know he knows his stuff.  If we are swept in this series I think coach Nate has earned himself another shot at it next year, if we can't advance to the WCF I think it is time to take a hard look at a coaching change.   We could use a proven playoff coach.
