    Only one of our bench players is playing more than 20 minutes per game (Mo Williams). The wrest (Dorell Wright, Joel Freeland, Thomas Robinson) are only playing around 15 minutes per game. Is this confidence? Is this bench really even average in a league with the LA Clippers and San Antonio Spurs?

    This is a team building momentum and chemistry and finding that second nature flow that we need. This is a team that is stepping up and the bench has been great! Stotts is tired of experimenting after a season of it and these starters are understanding the game plan better. Stotts is winning games and if that's cause for concern, I don't get it? They are not burned out and they are healthy!

    The Blazers are 24th in bench production.

    This is an improvement, but not enough to even make our bench average.

    Starters rested all preseason, the rotation guys are learning where they fit it now. If we could blow some teams out by end of the 3rd quarter they'd get more minutes. It's also matchups and foul trouble that determines the rotations. Patience is something Stotts has. I trust his approach to coaching and 8-2 has proven he's achieving really good success. We're 2nd in the West!!!! It's a good thing!

    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...
