    Coach McMillan do some coaching in the fourth quarter.  I watched Utah's Deron Williams score 10 points in the last 31seconds.  No defense and it was a lot of luck that we came up with the win.  We settled for shooting freethrows with a Utah team that is an awesome at freethrows 89% for the game.  Williams first two baskets were uncontested.  It is like we were giving up defending after doing a great job all game.  Call a timeout and get things straight.  Why is your team (McMillan) always coming down to the last seconds of a game and not forcefully putting the game away.  We need to show teams that in the last minutes they are done and not us.  Be forceful and not delicate.  Step in front of someone on the court and put them to the floor.  Don't allow easy uncontested baskets.  Everyone on the court new that Williams was going to shoot, he is there best player.  At least try to put some pressure on him and force someone else to shoot.  Please do some coaching Mr. McMillian down the stretch of the game and call a timeout before the next 7 point run from the other team.

    D-Will scored 10 in 31 seconds because we were playing prevent defense. All we needed to do was have them kill the clock and we make our free throws on the other end and the game was over. Give me Andre on the foul line with the game hanging in the balance every day of the week and twice on Sunday's. Finally, it was smart NOT to contest Williams' shots. He's a savvy player and would have probably got a couple And-1's or even been fouled shooting a 3. The best thing in that situation is to hope they use clock before they score.

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
