Trail Blazers Vs Pacers Game Thread
Speaking of 3-point shooting, it's been abysmal these past three home games. Portland has shot a combined 24-81 (.296) from downtown. While a lot of those attempts were open looks, our shooters haven't been able to get into much of a shooting rhythm due to the other quick, forced looks they're attempting. There's no problem shooting 30 3's a game, as long as they're open and come from running the offensive sets, but the team as a whole really should lay-off the quick shot. That shot's not going anywhere. We can get that look all game long, so why not set up the play and then shoot it if things start to break down? Portland can take down the hot Pacers if they show offensive discipline and work it inside to LA and he's able to set up his shooters off of the double team. And just like most nights, if the open 3's are falling, the Trail Blazers are a tough out.
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
