Has anybody else noticed that both games we lost, we not only lost but we lost in a very ugly fashion. Both of those teams had an elite PG. A PG who can control the tempo, and force the game into a style they and their team can benefit from the most. Another reason for those losses cold be the fact that both were the first road games on road trips, maybe the sudden shock of not having the crowd affects how this team runs. But aside from that, therre are many other signs that are pointing to where the Blazrs will struggle this year.
As of now, the Blazers rely heavily on pace to score points, by confusing or beating the defense, and rely on turnovers to help initiate that pace. An elite PG like CP3 or Nash not only squeeze the orange, but can slow down the tempo of the game at their will. Not to mention, Felton seems to have a little trouble staying in front of these types of players.
What do you think? Will Elite PG be a problem for Portland this season? (By Elite, I don't mean PG like Westbrook that look to score first and could easily switch over to SG)
