    Terry has earned my respect today.
    CJ stat's line: Impressive. Took mostly high percentage shots. This is the CJ we all love. And he played D# too.

    At least he started the right guys after the half.

    But Aminu should not have started the game. That was the wrong move. We all knew it was the wrong move. We got into an early hole because of it.

    We won the game. But that first half is on stotts. That was the definition of insanity. He should know better.

    His 2nd half adjustments were AMAZING! Props to him for breaking his stubbornness and win us the hardest game of the season.

    Zach and Hood came in and did just as bad in the 1st. Zach fouls so much not sure we can start him.

    Nurk, our second best player lost for the season. Enes an injured shell of himself. Hood injured. Dame played terrible in game 7. I can't believe this team made the WCF!!!

    Evan Turner was huge in the 4th quarter when Dame/CJ we're exhausted. Stotts stuck with him and he was huge when we needed him.

    Go Blazers!

    The bigger issue for me is not that they start him but they try to get him going early. Why? With CJ, Dame and Kanter on the floor....let's get them going early! But yes Props to Terry for sure

    Aminu isn't doing himself any favors in a contract year.

    Zach and Hood came in and did just as bad in the 1st. Zach fouls so much not sure we can start him.

    2 of those fouls were BS calls to favor Jockitch and one of those calls was BS because the defender has to allow the player to catch the ball and land if he is up in the air and catching a pass. If you ask me it was Zach's defense that kept us in the game in the first half.

    Maybe so... but Millsap didn't do jack shit in this game. He only hit three shots. Zach has played excellent defense on him.

    I would look up his points by quarter, but NBA.com blows ass and I can't figure out how to look at each quarter's stat sheet.

    He gets props for starting the right guys in the second half. I didn't expect him to do that. Good for him.

    I love Stotts and give him credit for many things and want him to continue as coach beyond today.

    But I give him little credit for this series. Just sayin.

    I do know that Millsap made all 3 of his shots in the first quarter. Which means he did not score any on ET nor anymore on Zach after quarter 1.

    Stotts made the right moves in the 2nd half.

    I do have questions though.....

    When we lose or have bad stretches a lot of people will say that Stotts just doesn't have a good enough roster. Is this proof that the roster is in fact good enough and we should expect more than a 1st round defeat?

    The fact is Denver completely choked. They hit their first two 3 pointers and then proceeded to miss all of their remaining 17. If they just make one or two out of 17 and win the game are we still praising Stotts for a great game? Do players hitting big shots or choking determine whether a coach is good or not? Or do people believe that good coaching put the team in this position?

    I'm really not trying to turn today negative. It was fucking awesome! I just don't know if Stotts should be given a pass not to dog him when he almost cost us the series if CJ doesn't go nuclear and Denver doesn't shit the bed.
