    If Meyers could've made his 2 FTs, this is most likely a win. He has one job on the team: to shoot, and he can't even do it when nobody's guarding him.

    But at least we had stable ownership, instead of this huge Jodi Allen question mark.

    When CJ has one of his cold nights just sit his ass and lean on Hood. It’s like Stotts hasn’t evolved since years ago when we actually NEEDED CJ. We already know CJ is our worst defender, so if he’s not scoring there’s no reason for him to be out there. Stop treating him like he’s a superstar and above a benching.

    It will cool you down. Gives you the break from the team you said you're seeking

    If we continue play like this we won't remain there for long.

    No worries, Blazers are undefeated in games they lead at the end of the 3rd quarter.

    I agree with you 100 percent. It will take us missing the playoffs before something happens.

    Yeah, it's the most important quarter, no? The first quarter didn't look great either. As long as Stotts is the coach, this team will never be able to play to its full potential.

    Do the Mavs have the talent the Blazers do? No way in Hell. This isn't a GM issue. This is a coaching issue.

    Good. I hope it stings pretty bad. That was a terrible choice to drive in for a layup.

    It's unfortunate. I see Olshey getting shit because he didn't do some masterful trade but until we have a better coach, this team will never realize its potential. I actually like Layman and Hood playing together a lot but they weren't being utilized tonight. Same with Nurk.

    Coaching just blows. We clearly have so much more talent than the Mavs and most teams.

    Looking for a foul at the end of regulation rarely works out unless you're Lebron.

    Pull up and take the 10 foot shot.

    Agony of defeat!
    Its going to take a bit to get the rotation down.

    The Dallas Euro (Doncic?) is just a ball hogging iso player w/a decent shot. He just wants to dominate the ball most of the time, but he is impressive for only 19, of course he played a lot of Pro ball over the years and is already seasoned.

    He needs to stop backing this coach who has been mediocre at best when looking at his body of work. Did we not have enough talent tonight? Is that the narrative? Stotts apologists make me laugh.

    I don't see where you answered the question. Who did you want in there that wasn't? Terry has lost games in the past, but the players lost this one.

    Yeah, let's trust your judgement over Lillards. Typical bandwagon fan. Jump on, jump off.
