    Will the player's only meeting work? Can Portland beat the worst team in the NBA, record wise? We all know playing in Philly gives us fits, so regardless of record, this should be a battle for a full 48 minutes. There are no keys to this game. Just come out and play loose. I feel like we have been tightening up in the 4th quarter, which goes against everything I've seen from this team since Nate's taken over. I mean, we even had the 4th quarter magic earlier this year with all of those huge runs made in the final 12 minutes. Win or lose, I just want to see a full 48 minutes of basketball out of the Trail Blazers in the city of Brotherly Love.

    I can't put a finger on what the issue is... grrr.

    Hopefully it's just effort like the guys have been saying. If that's the case I think the players-only meeting was a perfect remedy. Nothing like some serious discussion about what's going on and how to fix it to fire up the team.

    Here's to some 76er domination, GO BLAZERS!

    Yup, still waiting for that full 48 min game. 

    Hopefully they worked out some stuff in the meeting, worked out some things, and can move on and play some legit, leave everything on the court, Portland-style basketball.

    We need a new 4th quarter system, 1-3 its pretty decent but in the fourth we are a defensive team that has resorted to jump shots in the 4th quarter.  We need someone to get to the tin so we can resort to Brandon Roy Iso's he doesnt have the quickness to get around,split, or attack double teams off the dribble he can still see the same openings but the cammand he once had late game that allowed him to close isnt there.  So since teams resort to get ball out of Roy's hands and make the others beat us we need to get a PG that can create for himself and others, and can with a semblance of confidence and poise knock down wide open 3pt shots.  We need to attempt to get Devin Harris and get Terrence Williams on some Michael Beasely type ish.  Both can put pressure on defense and play good defense

    Batum needs to step up and drive to the basket more. LA will do his thing and Roy seems to be doing what he needs to do, Also Miller has looked like he's been cruising. If Miller and Batum show up it will be a blow out.  How about Matthews and those late 3's last game, guy can shoot no doubt.  I wonder why no plays are ran for him, Nate needs to learn to run plays for wingmen.

    (sigh)...POINTS IN THE PAINT and offensive rebounds.  Maybe once or twice each period, put the ball on the floor and take it strong?  Wesley, I guess I'm talking to you.

    Easy to put a finger on this.  The Blazers are ranked in the bottom third in almost every major category thus far this season.  The horses just simply aren't there.  The shortage of bigs due to injury, is to blame for some of the statistical anomalies, but certainly not all.

    Boom! Batum needs to step it up, show Matthews up.

    But Portlands Predictable, they still havent figured that out yet.

    This is a good place to start. We've got to stop relying on the jumpers and get some hard to the basket inside buckets. IT HAS TO HAPPEN.

    wow a team that on paper should be western conference finals at the very least cant win a ball game. watching tonight matthews, aldridge, miller, and some camby are the only ones putting in effort. batum waved his french white flag AGAIN, rudy is off and on. johnson seems to be too excited and cant control the ball, cunningham's only shot we need him to take is off. puke! the thrillas return is this seasons only saving grace, if he doesnt spark some effort from everyone i say play patty mills 36min a game if he puts in half as much effort on the court as he does cheering he will out score half this team easy. maybe cho told them to throw this season away for a good draft.

    Are you kidding me!!! A loss to the nets, now to the sixers, something needs to change on this team, everyone should be on the trading block except WM and camby- they are the only ones who seem to be playing - I take my words back blow this team up!!!!  This team is pathetic. 4 game losing streak, 8 and 9, first time under 500. since when? This is Completely unacceptable for this team!!!!!! CHO better get to work!!!! This season is gone if this is what we have to look forward to. Roy pathetic, L.A. nice disappearing act, sluggish Miller - they have given up.

    its like i though all last season pendergraph was the glue that held the effort to the players. no pre game speech, no effort. bring back jeff as an assistant coach and stick him in the middle of the huddle pre game.

    Shaking my head tonight after this one. So many things to point out but the biggy is 4th quarter ball movement and shooting percentage. We are playing to protect instead of attack and it is killing us. Once again passing is a culprit as we get lazy on them. Armon Johnson again has another bad outing and every time he came in the game, we lost a good chunk of our lead. Ok...I could write for hours tonight but I am gonna quit here and hope the team get's it together for tomorrow nights game.

    peace out,

    Blazer bench scored 10 points
    Philly bench scored 41 points
    I'm suprised we were even in this game.

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
