    The Blazers still can't figure out how to play on the road and it ends up costing them a game against the Kings. Why are they not playing better away from Portland? Discuss the game with us!

    Damn just woke up to this result. Losing from this team missing Holmes while Barnes and Fox left the game as well. Seems we cannot catch a break.

    CJ had the same grin on his face he did when he stepped out of bounds in game 5.

    Also it’s clear accountability only applies to some players.

    It was a quiet second half from Dame but the dude still knows how to impact the game. It was a loud and disastrous game from CJ. He was forcing shit, he was getting blown by, he had the two big turnovers (dragging his foot to get that travel and not inbounding the ball), and having the most shots on the team when he was shooting the ball the worst on the team... he was just terrible tonight. Great game from Nurk but as a team we don't play winning ball on the road. They have to pick themselves up from this huge loss and pull off an upset in one of the next two games.

    people getting way too disheartened.

    didn't we just come back from down 20 against the 2nd best team in the east like 7 days ago? nurk is finishing much better of late. dame is finding his shot.

    chauncey needs to get better managing minutes. especially on a b2b, but at least he acknowledges his shortcomings. im still encouraged.

    we desperately need size.

    You just listed three breaks we caught - and still couldn’t find a road win.

    0-2 versus Sacramento. There’s just no way a good team does that.

    it's clear?

    billups uses his two leading scorers a crutch. like most new coaches do.

    ...disheartened because we have seen this movie multiple times before. Nothing new, so it gets very frustrating.

    7-3 in our previous ten before tonight, and off a 4 game win streak.

    defense at home is nothing like in yrs past.

    Yeah, we are trading CJ for a good starting forward away from being a really decent team. We also just need the team to stop being in their heads so much about road games versus home games and just play the game. If this is our roster after the trade deadline or even if this is our starting back court, then we'll lose in the first round badly or maybe even lose in the play-in. If we make the right move(s) then we can be more competitive when we make the playoffs.

    nurk feasted when they were trapping dame in the first half.

    sac went away from trapping and let mitchell/harkless guard dame 1 on 1. nurk's advantage went away.

    but i generally agree. he shoulda had more shots than cj

    This might be the healthiest we've ever been for a 20 game stretch, we're full of experienced guys, 3 starters who have played together for years, and we're losing road games like we're some young team. If your defense can't travel, it's not real. This group should be well above .500

    CJ was terrible for sure. BBIQ in single digits tonight

    Dame's 2nd half shot selection was bad. Yeah, he did other things, but he could have driven a lot more in the 2nd half than chucking three's. The Kings were in the penalty for more than half of the 3rd and 4th Q's. If Billups can not figure out how to consistently get Dame more catch & shoot, spot-up, and back cut opportunities, then he needs to completely shit-can this 'play-Dame-off-the-ball' junk. It's not doing anything positive; not for Dame and not for the team. And I think it leaves Dame feeling like he needs to force the action when he does get the ball, usually with only half of the shot clock left

    having CJ bringing the ball down and initiating the offense is a joke
