A few observations - Phoenix addition:

Steve Nash is nasty at many things, including the pick and roll, shooting, and free throws. Those are important things at the end of games. Too bad the Blazers stink at all three down the stretch of most games.

Andre Miller is the only Blazer with a clutch handle. Unfortunately, he's the slowest perimeter player on the team. What a sad. Patty continues to absolutely butcher every bit of clock management, and Armon is so far in Nate's dog house I bet he has a pillow, VCR, and tapes of Steve Nash in there to keep him warm at night by now.

Concerning ESPN, I thoroughly enjoyed a nice break from Mike Barret and his dizzying array of contemporary pessimistic meanderings. Of course, Mark Jackson says nice things about everyone, but it's still a refreshing change of scenery. Funny how the national guys sounded WAY more Blazer homer than our own crew. Neither did I miss Mike Rice stretching his talking overboard--sinking the action on the next play with his ever special way of taking the long way home on every verbal journey. Jackson keeps to the script, and sometimes that's a good thing.

Coach Franks is the whiniest looking guy in the NBA. Even after he gets a call he still appears to have taken on the essence of a constipated toad. Dude, you're annoying. SO ANNOYING. I thank my lucky stars for Nate every time I see Franks, Ron Van-Jeremy, Professor Prune-face Adelman, or that spazzy Chipmunk, coach D'Antony put on their respective pouts. You guys belong in a goth band. A really BAD goth band. Thank you, Nate, for never looking like a chump on TV. I wish your team's shooting could say the same...

Speaking of the Blazer bench...they pretty much stink. No ands, ifs, or buts. No "Rudy needs more confidence". Can it. No excuses. They stink. And Joel looks about 80% right now...80% of Marks, that is! Sorry, but it's the total truth.

All-in-all, I love this team, but I'm tired of watching them suck in crunch time. I guess I should get used to it though, because that appears to be one of the only constants with this group. Oh well. Go Blazers!
