Can we lay off the jumpers?

This is a great jump shooting team...but the shots we should be taking are pretty much only when someone is wide open for three. We shouldnt be jacking shot after shot up. We need to get this team in foul trouble just as they do us. They are experienced and often put their heads down and bull rush the basket. The Blazers gotta force the refs to blow the whistle, because right now The Rockets physical style of play is getting the benefit of the calls. They are allowed 100% more contact before a whistle is called.

Right now the Rockets are winning the game in the game(hence the 2-1 series advantage despite being tied 3-3 in pts in a half). A good way to combat this without experience/savvy is to put your head down and drive to the lane hard. BRoy shouldnt be the only guy doing this. Hes got to protect his body more than anyone else.

To anyone who says that it was Rudy who got us back in the game with long jumpers...I agree! Those should be however some of the few long jumpers we should be taking. Wide-open shots with our better shooters. We should be much more mid-range and attack the basket plays. At first it migh tlook ugly but the refs and the Offense will come around! Be strong and muscle through the adersity of shot blocks and swallowed whistles! It will pay off within a quarter!
