    I believe the biggest problem so far in this game is that 28 of 31 shots have been taken by people not named Damian Lillard.

    You would expect a team with so many failures to be hungry not careless.

    Well it does seem like we're a little tighter in half court defense - but our lousy offense is leading to a lot of transition attacks for the Suns.

    Stotts would have LOVED to have Larry Nance and Zeller instead of Melo and Kanter. Just sayin'.

    It feels like every player is fighting against their natural instincts.

    Could we maybe give up SLIGHTLY fewer WIDE OPEN threes?

    27.5% overall and 13.3% from three.

    Lillard has 4 shots.

    So it's true - the best defense is a good offense

    I thought MAYBE we could hold the lead under 20 by the half... oh well. Serves us right for giving so many minutes to scrubs like (checks notes) our entire starting lineup
