    i know it's just fan fest but i liked meyers passing ability. barton looks like he's in control of his skills now last year he looked like he had the skill he was just not in control of them, his no look pass was great. looks like barton and batum have some good chemestry, heck, the whole team is looking like chemistry is far better than the last couple seasons. exciting :)

    Most competitive bench we've had in years. Barton looked good and the bigs all played well. Meyers and TRob have some chemistry as well.

    Barton was crazy again in preseason.. MY GUY ALLEN CRABBE looked good. I want him to do well so bad (Like I did with Barton last season)

    Very impressed with Crabbe, I think Robinson will be a big help this season too..

    Really need to see how the team plays with everyone healthy

    I like T-Rob. I know I was kinda skeptical about a move for him initially so I'm really glad he's been playing so well. Leonard and Robinson will be a major force this year if the can stay healthy and contribute.

    I thought Freeland and Crabbe showed the most improvement of anybody on the roster. Clippers are going to be a tough win all season. Didn't expect to win with so much offense on the bench for this game. All in all not a very good game by the team. We didn't shoot a freethrow until midway 2nd quarter.

    That is not acceptable River especially for a team like Portland that is so half court oriented on offense.

    Unfortunately, the much talked about, highly anticipated hoisting of a record number of 3s this season will not lead to many trips to the charity stripe.  I have been in the minority all off season in clamoring for some post presence on this team.  Without a paint presence, and without anyone but Dame able to breakdown a defense with the bounce, this Blazer team will likely be outscored from the line more often than not and lose most close games.  The only encouraging news I've heard recently came from coach Stotts.  He has said he plans to get LaMarcus more touches down on the block this season and feels he did his team an injustice last year in not doing that enough.

    I also want to see more touches in the post for LA and for him to get his FTA up to at least 6 per game. The over reliance on three point shooting also has me extremely worried. Defense though will be the single most important to whether this team is a playoff team or not. 

    Lillard specifically needs to press the ball handlers and anticipate screens far better than he did last year. He absolutely got crushed on pick and roll as his man either got wide open shots or assist opportunities. That cannot happen this year both Lillard and Batum need to show a willingness to fight through screens instead of always dropping under them. Lopez should be a major improvement over JJ in stopping dribble penetration but if LA cannot rotate quickly enough the team will give struggle keeping the other team off the offense glass and preventing points in the paint. This is going to take a team effort.

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

    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...
