    Until a team stops me from shooting over 85% on a certain type of shot, I'm going to continue to do it until they turn out the lights. 31-35.... keep going! 89% at the rim....17% from '3'.
    Not sure how this is even a discussion.

    Also would be very important if the foul is on Nurkic or someone else that could get into foul trouble.

    Now THAT was the Gary Payton I expected. All the "wait til GP gets back" talk had me a bit concerned.

    Tough home loss against a shit team. Not a good night. May have to reconsider my 39 win prediction....

    The team increased their shot rate inside the restricted area in the 4th quarter in comparison to the rest of the game. I guess it could always be better and therefore is never good enough for some.

    One man's "negative" is another's "realistic".

    I'm sure for the right price SlyPokerDog can make that happen.

    Looking at the box score it seems we missed 3 3’s in the closing seconds; just in case anyone who was watching didn’t realize why we were losing the game.

    Team has too many good 3 point shooters to ever be at 17%…

    The definition of “underperforming”.

    I went back and looked at it. He leaned into the screen again. IMO not enough to call the foul but enough that they would not have overturned it. For some reason the refs seem to call Nurk for that way too much this year. It's 2 turnovers a game.

    I'm trolling on that response bro. I would love to see 3-0 though. Blazers are going to right this ship. It's going to happen. Why not start now?

    That overturned charge call was BS. What is Grant supposed to do ? He's sliding with Banchero who just barrels into him. Wtf.

    Not sure why Billups felt the need to ride the starting 5 that hard when things felt like they were going better with one or two bench players mixed in. Sharpe a team high +8 in just 15 minutes.

    Young coach that has trust in his starters. Starting to see the kind of coach Billups will be. Every coach has their way. This is his first real season and we are seeing the decisions he is making.
