    Bet the Lakers wish they had us in preseason so they could win one game at least

    Great defensive rotations on that last possession!

    Maybe the blazers should become a heavy 3 point shooting team. Seems to work for the opponents.

    I dunno why we seem to keep trying to thread passes to cutters around 3 defenders. This has been happening consistently throughout pre-season. It's just not natural.

    Way too many passes. We're over passing. They're actually on many occasions passing it to harder shots. I get the installing of a new system, but c'mon. Don't take away from your playmakers abilities.

    Three guard line up will never work. Chauncey needs to accept this. It’s not happening. Cj or Powell need to come off the bench. Stop this insanity. We lost to Campazo and Austin Rivers with that line up. Enough said.

    One thing is we are attacking the rim. 7/16 at the rim (not good) but 14/17 at the line. Suns have shot 2 free throws.

    Small back court that cannot defend (both Dame & CJ) we will have to pick our poison with both, either demand they play d and it has an impact on their offense or get more scoring from 3/4/5 and bench.

    This is why Dame wants to leave. At this point just blow it up and start completely fresh

    And yet they're up by 22. Maybe FTs are overrated?

    Where did I read that Stotts tried to institute a new defensive scheme in pre-season and then gave up on it? How soon before Chauncey gives up on his offense?
