    I think it's a factor of that, Chauncey asking him to play off the ball more which he's not used to, and focusing more of his energy on the defensive side.

    I honestly think Nurk is bipolar or deals with depression or something. His performances are so uneven. He's a monster one game and a mouse for two others. His inconsistent effort and energy is going to keep this team from going anywhere meaningful.

    We need to institute the RoCo Rule: Robert Covington NEVER touches the ball on offense.

    And Dame, Dame, Dame ... you need to find your shot. Everyone complains about CJ, but Dame's taking some questionable shots and not making them.

    CJ will NEVER be accountable or restrained. And as for needing another passer to get Dame the ball back, don't get me started.
    There is one player on the entire Blazer team shooting over 50% tonight and he can only get 4 shots so far. In fact, he is the only front court starter to get a FG. But because of the pecking order, he won't get shots when he is open or has good looks. It has to go to the Chuck Bros....of which we have two. One is plenty....and CJ getting more looks is taking Dame out of his rhythm.

    Games like this are EXACTLY why the Blazers need to move CJ for Simmons.

    Past my bedtime. Not going to hang around to watch part two of this debacle. If they have a great second half, I'll read about it in the morning.

    Disappointed with the team thus far.

    Perhaps last game was a glimpse of what can be (and hopefully will be) but seems to be missing tonight.

    I'm confident the rest of the league loves the idea of Dame not having the ball in his hands.

    I was skeptical of 'playing Dame off the ball' before the season started, and 10 quarters in I still am. Maybe it will work itself out but I do not believe that Portland has the facilitators to get Dame the ball back in good spot-up and back cut positions; and I'm thinking it's throwing Dame's timing and rhythm off

    Dame will find his shot. Why are people worried about the dude when he's proven time and time again to get out of slumps.

    I agree Dame will certainly get his shot back. Hopefully his attempts get back to normal as well.

    You have to plug him back in and redownload the basketball program into Nurk after every game. If he goes to sleep, it loses all memory.

    If you say one more positive thing about CJ you'll be banned from the board.

    I’m one of his biggest detractors, but credit where it’s due.

    No he’s just not very good. He’s a role player with too high of expectations from Portland fans
