The ATL GM should be fired for trading Doncic.
So it was about the non call
Not only that, but it also would've saved us time bringing the ball up where we could've called time to advance and leave enough time for a putback or at worst, we could foul them.
Refs are always fucking up games. They are one reason why I've soured on sports.
One thing is they need to split Dame and CJ apart more likely trade CJ in the off season. Plus I am not a big fan of CJ. We need a new coach will coach the game how the flow going in the game. Like tonight CJ had bad shooting night and due he not very in any other category then you go with someone else. Hell you just traded for a guy that can play the 2 that is 6'8" that can exploit other 2 guard in low posts. Stotts think the only can pull a game is by Dame and CJ. The problem is both those players agrees with him.
Kevin Pritchard on Line 1........
Blazers never lost a game after leading at the end of the 3rd quarter UNTIL YOU WENT TO HAWAII!
The loss is on you!
The Blazers looked terrible/uninterested against Miami at home and now give away this game against that Mavs. That is 2 games they should have won an it will likely cost them at the end of the season.
Yeah. I can't see any point where Dame doesn't demand major changes after this season. Even if we get a decent team to play in the first round, most coaches know how to disrupt Terry's flow offense and he never adjusts. Somebody will come up will be able to take advantage of mismatches Terry can't counter. It's sad because the bench is actually coming together. But you can always count the team to go on dry spell at some point against a top opponent and we just fall apart.
After today I am in this camp.
At least he knew how to take a timeout
We are a good team. Not a great team.
We have a good coach. Not a great coach.
We have a good back court. Not a great back court.
We’ll finish 6, 7 or 8 (barring no injuries).
We won’t get swept. We’ll win 1 or 2.
This summer the team will sell and we will go through another year with Olshey and Stotts.
Then we will have no choice but to trade Dame as his talents were wasted. Entertaining! But no promise land. Walton won a ring in Boston, Drexler got his in Houston.....and Dame will get his in.......?
As much as I dont like most of this it seems plausible I guess...
BOOOOOOOOOOOOmchakalaka, that really sucked...
Maybe RipCity Two should send in a petition calling for Neil & Stotts heads since this is the official Trailblazer Message Board and the majority of the fans here want them gone. Or maybe lead a protest at One Center Court. Im sure our voices would be heard!
The Blazers lost to the Mavs scoring only 9 points in the 4th Q! This has to be one of the lowest scoring 4th Q in Blazer history, and is the result of not observing that the first 3 Q, and the end of 3rd Q 92-78 Blazer lead was explained mainly by scoring in the paint by Nurk. What we should have learned by the UTA game in which substituting Meyers for Nurk was the excellent scoring with 6 of 7 FG scoring (and 4 of 5 swish3 scoring) for 16 points in 25 min by Meyers, establishing the success of Meyers as the alternative Center. If Meyers had played instead of Zach when Nurk fouled out, perhaps for 24 instead of only 8 min, as one of the highest 3P% Blazers, and with dunk scoring, the Blazers would have probably have scored at least 17 points in that 4th Q and won the game.
In this game, flawed refereeing according to Cuban rules (again) gave the win to the Mavs, but Blazer coaches should have relied on the highest % shooters for 4th Q scoring instead of allowing terrible no-calls of fouls of Dame to allow the loss. After the UTA accomplishments that Meyers showed, he should have been used here for additional scoring needed from the Center position. Since Nurk scored 18 points on 9 of 11 shooting in 21 min, the Blazers needed to continue that scoring with Meyers, who should have added another 8 points in the 4th Q for the win. If the Blazers will recognize who is scoring and who is not, games like this one and the Playoffs can be wins instead of losses.
Who invited Mr. Doom over?
it's like reading the Onion
82% of Nurk's baskets come within 10' of the rim and 56% come within 3'. Meanwhile 52% of Meyers' baskets come outside of 16'. Nurk wasn't beating Dallas from the perimeter when he went 9-11. The only thing similar about the offenses of Nurkic and Meyers is that they are tall
No, Wizenheimer, you missed the message. Nurk does score mostly from close, and Meyer scores best from the arc, and that is why Meyers could and should have been shooting 4+ swish3s that would have opened the paint for a drive like he so superbly scored on versus Rudy Gobert. That is why I said 8 additional points, from 2 swish3s and a dunk. That would have preserved the win!
