1º.- The Blazers were coming off a back-to-back. That ain´t gonna happen in playoffs.
2º.- The Blazers were playing without Camby. Addition by sustraction? That ain´t gonna happen in
3º.- The Lakers left Rudy wide open to find out if Rudy is pretending to be in a slump, as in "if he
miss that then he is faking it". Secret weapon has been unmasked.
4º.- The Blazers couldn´t win just by having more asissts, more steals, more blocks and less
turnovers. They also had to outscore the Lakers to win this game.
5º.- The Blazers centers´ boxscore in this game: 0 points, 0 steals, 0 blocks, 2 fouls, 1 rebound.
6º.- Wallace was taking off and landing during 40 minutes. With no landing gear. I´m starting
to make myself questions about that airline safety.
7º.- Brandon played 30 minutes. All of them on his knees.
8º.- Rudy played.
9º.-Wallace blamed LaMarcus for the outcome. Already pointing fingers.
10º.- We can´t complain about the refs as much as we like to.
11º.- We might have to play Oklahoma in the playoffs.
12º.- We want former Blazers to play well, and that was just not the case with Blake.
13º.- The Blazers could have blown out the Lakers in the fourth quarter, allowing Nate to play his
starters against the Lakers scrubs for three or four minutes. Missed opportunity.
14º.- There´s no record of an alley-ooping team winning a championship. As far as I know, there´s not record of
another alley-ooping team in basketball history either. (Globetroters doesn´t count).
16º.- The Lakers not only did lose this game, but also a litle bit of their hatefulness.
Go ahead (Don´t worry, these are not going to be a series).
