Credit for beating the worst team in the league? Credit for one game performances? Nah. Theyll get credit when they play consistently on more than a one-game basis. Stotts will get credit when he starts adjusting more, adapting better, and once he gets the team to move the ball more, gets more player movement (especially DJJ), and gets the team playing better defensively.
You’re so obsessed with out 11th man in the rotations production. It’s kinda weird.
Blazers played Minny, not Lakers, so if You expect peps to be sorry and say Blazers are great again... Win against Minn w/o KAT basically means nothing. More, that's the main problem we got: We play shit and neither you or Stotts can see the problem, but after win against GLeague team with Dame going 40 you behave like Blazers ve just won Championship.
Big bro come on now man you know damn well this is Minnesota. I think they’ve lost 5-6 straight.
Minnesota wasn't very good tonight but I was looking for his other players getting involved in the offense beside Dame and CJ. 1st quarter not really but 2nd and 3rd we collected a lot of assist in those quarter. Defense so so there 2 guards had productive nights but we also made so good defense made too. Simons score in the 3rd unit but he was looking for his shot instead running that group as a point guard at times players was open when he try to on minnesota defense not good look to me.

He looks like he is slowly getting into better shape.
Rodney Hood looked much improved. Looks like his jump is coming back also.
I like it.
For a time they went with Dame, Nurk, Trent, RoCo, Jones.
It seems Stotts is toying with either Dame or CJ instead of both as much as he used to. Subtle but effective change. Keeps both a bit fresher and reduces minutes a bit. Allows both to lead the offense.
The thing I am noticing is when he pulls the trigger quick without thinking he is money.
I noticed this also. It seems like he is making a concerted effort on defense. he is trying to put it all together. Sometimes it effects his offense which is to be expected.
Of course. This is the case with a bunch of players. Teams defend Dame and CJ. 3rd and 4th option should look good.
Blazers did what they should have....pound a terrible team missing their best player. Hope this can carry over to a team that is even a decent Playoff team. Dame went nuts from a production/efficiency standpoint and got a nice 4th quarter rest.
Would like to see Jones/RoCo get more than a combined 8 shots in a blowout as we will need more from them against quality teams.
more of this kinda surprise trapping. why do we not do it more often
Credit? You beat a terrible team ranked 30th in the league in defensive efficiency (by the way, was the only team ranked below us) without their superstar player. Like Chris Rock said, you don't get credit for doing what you're supposed to do!
Yeh, he is still a bad coach; I only said he is not a terrible coach.
It shows what Dame can do against a team that doesn't know how to trap/deny him open looks.
This is how it works.
Good one game performance against a bad team - meaningless
Good one game performance against the NBA champs - one off
Bad one game performance against a bad team - very telling
Bad one game performance against Utah - worst team ever
