    I know. I was joking. We'd either have to score <10 with them scoring >100 + whatever we score. Or they'd have to score 1,000+ with us scoring <901.
    I'm not putting it past us for either scenario to happen, but I'm also not holding my breath. ;p

    Right now, Meyers is better than Zach. And I don't think it's close. The slight benefits Zach brings defensively are really mitigated by how foul prone he is.

    here are the stats of both players this season (Zach on top, Meyers on bottom):

    compare.png

    the only thing Meyers has on Collins is shooting percentages. Collins brings more to the table than Meyers does. Collins, although much smaller in size comparison, defends a hell of a lot better than Meyers does. Meyers just tries to get out of the way.

    honestly, though, i dont blame Meyers for how he plays. i blame Stotts for making him how he is. soon enough though, Collins will turn into Meyers because of coaching.

    Davis prefers to play with Collins, too.

    It's really not close. Meyers is playing spot minutes and outproducing him. He has a 19 PER and a 70% TS% for godsakes. It's his best season yet. He's earned more time, and I'm a vocal Meyers hater.

    honestly, he should be out producing him. he has been in the league for how long now? his lack of defense is outshining his offense ability and Collins is the opposite. Meyers just doesnt do anything on defense at all and sets 30ft picks and stands at the 3 pt line with flashes of going to the paint. the minutes should go to collins just based off of him having better defense.

    I admit I've said multiple times that Nards hasn't looked like a 2year old trying to play basketball this year, and prolly should be getting more minutes.
    However his pick and roll defense or lack of even trying to contest 5ft runners against Utah showed he shouldn't be getting PT.

    That game wasn't on him, and he's not the reason why Portland lost.
    However that doesn't change the fact that too often the offensive player would run pick and roll. See Nards 3-4 ft from the rim and know Nards wasn't even going to get a hand up to challenge the shot.

    I really don't care if Nards gets scored on out of the pick and roll. That's not his strength. But at least get your hands up and look menacing.

    Unless we start Meyers and assign him 8 to 12 swish3 attempts. With his 50% success rate, that is 12-18 points from his swish3s, or maybe more if he is given more opportunity. If we endeavor for 15 or more swish3s tomorrow, we can still be successful!

    Zach is going to be the latest bkazer to score 50 and we'll win by more than 20.
