The Church of Roy podcast returned to discuss the Trail Blazers’ continued woes on the road. Prior to Portland’s victory on Tuesday, hosts Brian Wilcox and Steve Dewald discussed the struggles that the Blazers are encountering.
Defense took center stage in the opening discussion. At the quarter mark of the season, coach Chauncey Billups’ squad is performing close to the same level as last year’s team. Brian and Steve both pointed to Portland’s inability to force teams into taking tough shots.
After detailing team-wide issues, Steve highlighted Robert Covington’s recent lull. How can you get a low-volume shooter out of a slump quickly?
