Then I didn't leave the link to the nba.com story. Here it is:http://www.nba.com/2009/news/features/shaun_powell/12/01/offseason.moves/index.html?ls=iref:nbahpt1
I too thought we would beat the Heat and was optimistic we would turn it around. The same Heat team that only averages 95 ppg scored at will on our team. It would have been much worse if they had actually hit some of their 3' in the 2nd half.What upsets me most about tonight's game was the lack of defensive intensity. Every rotation was late and even a late rotation failed to put a hand in the face.I just don't get how we can go from the League's best at opposing field goal % to allowing over 50% shooting in 3 straight games to average-below average teams.The plus side is that GO is a manchild and as Blazer fans, we are all feeling the pain, not just one of us.
Also, I failed to mention that Dre would be a sweet acquisition if we would just use him correctly. He is not the type of palyer who is going to thrive playing in spurts and totaling less than 20 minutes a night. Those are rookie roles and he is anything but a rook. If we would just give him a chance to start (why bring in a free agent and not start them?), he could get into a rhythm and run the show.I just want to see him get a shot to start.
Yeah. I agree about Andre (check my starting five since preseason). I also stayed up till 130 am writing another post after that game, in which I made that same point (among a few others.) Then, I discovered that looking at the preview and hitting "backspace" to correct something actually takes your browser back, erasing whatever you happened to write. >.<I like Steve. I think he's a phenomenal backup, and I think he'd work well with Rudy and Jared in a small, fast lineup looking to run. Anyhow, thanks for the comment. I'll probably write again after the next one. XD
