    OK, we are 1/4th of the way through the season, and is anyone else but me concerned about the fact that our bench is not getting more production?

    Last year, yes we had the worst bench in the NBA scoring 18.5 Points per game and averaging 13.3 minutes per game.  For 2013-2014 yes the bench is scoring slightly better at 24.6 points  per game but the minutes are approximately the same at 13.8 minutes.

    What concerns me is the fact that we are still playing our starters too much.  Yes we have better bench production then Indianapolis but when you look at San Antonio and OKC there is no comparison.  If we make a deep run into the playoffs there is a potential for another 28 Games.  Can our starters play 37-40 minutes every night for that long?

     

    Your thoughts?

    Our bench was not able to score 10 points in several games last season



    Mo Williams sneezes 10 points



    any more questions?

    Starters still playing too many minutes in my opinion!

    Bench needs to step it up more!

    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...

    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...
