What's the difference between Jessica Alba and Kim Catrell?? Take the jump and i'll tell ya
The difference is two fourth quarters against the thunder! Take a look at our division and realize that even with our horrible injuries and our tough opening schedule, we are a couple points away from leading our division.
I know we all remember those darned thunder games. We had control even in the fourth and then went cold at the worst times! If we win those two games we are 27-18 and only 1/2 game out of leading our division. Not to mention we would hold tie breakers against the two teams ahead of us.
I know that the 4th qtr separates the good and bad teams but its my conjecture that it wasn't a lack of talent during those two games that lead to defeat. It was merely a lack of cohesion and direction. We were trying to rely on what USED to work, not what works now. If those games were played today I say we win. If we win, then our season looks alot different.
I say the core of our future is Batum, Aldridge, Matthews and perhaps Roy/Oden. don't bank on the latter half but even with their addition don't marginalize the first 3. LMA is our post scorer and batum/matthews are starters.
We still have a excellent chance here and I notice fortunes can change for the better as easy as they change for the worse. Who knows what can happen. The Seahawks beat the Saints and anything can happen. Keep your head up and make our homecourt to loud to think!!! Go Blazers!!!
