The Portland Trail Blazers are picking up the pieces after a 139-77 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The 62-point loss is the largest in the NBA this season and illustrates how far behind the Blazers are compared to one of the top teams in the league.

“It was almost like a perfect storm to be honest with you. Nothing really worked for us,” coach Chauncey Billups said postgame.

Billups has been given a tough task as the Blazers coach, leading the team through a rebuild after trading away the franchise’s best player, but criticism is definitely warranted for his efforts.

The Blazers are 10-26 and the team is angling to be in the lottery for the third consecutive year under Billups, which begs the question whether he is the right coach to lead the team.

Perhaps a new coach at the helm could change the fortunes, but there is no guarantee of that.

If Billups wants to turn things around, the deck must be reshuffled. And he needs to do it before upper management does it for him with him on the outside.

BE community, what do you think? Should the Blazers fire Billups?
