    It was the road trail Blazers in the first half and the Home trailblazers in the second half.

    Second game in a row Nance and Little brought the energy and it carried over to the rest of the team.
    They need that.

    CJ as 6th man -or- ship him out :dunno: still can get 25-30++ minutes depending on flow/game script

    I think we are seeing Roco is a clear problem with the team. play better without him

    I'm not a fickle fan who will turn on Dame because of a bad dozen games, in an unusual season, after all he's done for Portland

    I still want a GM...AND OWNER...who will at least try to build a contender around Dame with moves other than auditioning a new set of role players every fucking year

    Not sure on that either. Few games ago he was the player of the game.
    Roco been off a bit but he has good stretches.

    What an odd game.

    Outstanding effort in that 2nd half comeback. I don't know what happened in the Blazer locker-room at the half - but I heartily endorse it!
    Billups is growing as a coach. A few games ago I was annoyed by the lack of PT for Nance. Now we are seeing the kind of impact from him that we all hoped for.
    The next step for the coach? Stop playing CJ big minutes when he is sucking all the air out of the building!

    i need to see that ATO play that chauncey drew up around the 330 mark that got Nurk the dunk.

    what a terrific play.

    Our ATO efficiency seems night and day compared to last yr where we get great looks. wish i could find the numbers to support this.

    (on offense anyway, that wide open three we gave up to Lavine was an abomination).

    it's just such an obvious fucking move. Dame-Powell-RoCo/Little-Nance-Nurkic as the standard starters. Dame-Powell-Little-RoCo-Nance as the small-ball starters

    Dame/CJ have NEVER had good synergy (not like Dame & Matthews). It has always been 'it's-my-turn-it's-your-turn' offense. On the rare occasions both are hot it looks awesome. But most of the time, it's just boring, frustrating, and awkward.

    Unfortunately I missed all but the last 6 minutes. I noticed Nurk in vs DJJ who was playing center. Did DJJ look way better in the Chicago scheme? Seemed like even with him at center, he was hurtin gtheir spacing down the stretch.

    There used to be numbers on that stuff available to the public, but it might be all be behind a pay wall now. I too would like to see it.

    At their best I still think nance is the better player/fit with the starters. He can switch onto the perimeter but is much stronger in the post than Roco. Roco might be the better shooter but its not likes he’s much better. Nance is also the better playmaker and rebounder.
