    Saw that. Bench guards time to earn keep for a change. Sauce and Curry have been a major disappointment of late. Time to get Trent Jr. some minutes with the big boys.

    The last time CJ didn't play against the Suns, the Blazers won by 40+....on the road.

    If the Blazers lose this game, this Team is dead and season is over. There are no excuses to lose against Phoenix, Because their team is already dead.

    It could be the setting for the feel good story of the season. The Blazers showing tremendous resilience after losing their owner and weathering losses as bad as 30 and 40 points have come back in a huge way winning 35 of the next 40 then sweeping their way into the Western Conference Finals. Who would have thought a team that lost by 20 to the lowly Suns in December would have reached such heights?

    How does that sound?

    Tis time last year we were in the midst of a 5 game losing streak. Through the Dec5 last year we had lost 11 games.
    And I remember the doom and gloom emotions that were prevalent, which is one your are entitled to express your emotions how ever you want.
    And we all know that we went on a pretty decent winning streak, then things look better.
    Personally, I think it will happen again. Im not wanting blow it up now or even change coaches, but a trade that made since would be welcome.
    Rip City....

    I can't excuse crappy play because they also played crappy at the same point last year.

    agreed, I really wasn't excusing crappy play, only pointing out that team's records can change through out the season and like the game being a game of runs, so can the season.
    Do It think they make the WC or NBA finals heck no. I still predict they finish in the middle of the pack.

    Which is why I care little about the W/L record, and am more concerned with HOW they play. Terry's playbook is ass, and the last few years we haven't even had decent/consistent effort/execution of his ass playbook. A few good weeks in the W/L column helps mask the major problems every year, but doesn't actually do anything to solve them.

    Sure, HOW they play is important to every franchise. Look at how many of the 30 teams have been mediocre for so long, with many making changes after changes and still not leaping above mediocrity. Hell, Im not against changing things and I think this franchise is going to see many big time changes down the road and they all art going to be good.
    Stott's is probably gone before all star break if things don't turn quickly. Changing coaches is always the easiest thing to do for sure and could spark more synergy?
