It's win or go home, do or die, back against the wall, one last chance, desperation time for the Blazers.
So far, this series has been one of subtle (too subtle?) adjustments for the Blazers. The only starting lineup change has been swapping Jerryd Bayless in for Rudy Fernandez. Last night Nate McMillan and his Blazers looked like they were out of ideas.
After three stinkbombs in five games it's high time we open up the coaching and management of this team to the masses. Let's lay it all on the line, leave it all on the court, play like it's our last play and pull out all the stops.
I want one -- ONE -- adjustment, tweak or change that will guarantee a Game 6 victory.
It can be a lineup move, a rotation move, a strategy move, a match-up switch or something totally off-kilter, like bringing in Greg Oden to salute the fans before the game or retiring Brandon Roy's jersey at halftime to re-create the Game 4 magic. "Start Brandon Roy" is too obvious and is a given if he's able, so leave that one out of this.
