Jay Triano is a good coach.
You know what sucks? We may win the series but the way we played tonight shows me we don't have what it takes to win in the second round. So why bother beating the Pelicans?
Man! It will be a long three days till gametime. Yes! this game sucked, and was a nightmare, but in NO WAY< are the Blazers toast, and it is ignorant to say such. It's on the Blazers to make the adjustments, and get back to playing Blazers basketball. Dame & CO. ain't crawling under a rock and surrendering. Congrats to the Pels on a quality effort. Time to regroup, and go get game 2. Go Blazers!!
Gee that's the spirit!
I actually feel the exact opposite. If they can somehow get out of this 1st round matchup they can play loose since no one expects them to win anyway. They are much better as an underdog in the Dame era.
C'mon Man! You're better than that ignorant comment. Every matchup is different. And I know Dame can take over at anytime. He's that good.
Would've been fun to WIN and then make adjustments for Game 2. If we had stolen that win tonight, we'd be in such a great place right now. 1-0 with room to grow.
Will say tho, that's the first time I haven't seen Lillard ready to go for a playoff game.
I expect a big bounce back in game 2.
Dame doesn't dare attack Davis. He tried 2-3 times tonight, and it didn't go well.
I know most of y'all are irrational toward Meyers, but I'd find 10-15 minutes a game for Meyers & Collins to play together. Pull Davis out of the lane with the 3pt threat & let Dame drive.
On defense, you put Collins on Davis & let Meyers take Miriic.
Dame also needs to take advantage of the time when Davis is on the bench. Drive, drive, drive
He looked completely locked in during the Jazz game like nothing was going to stop him.
Tonight he just didn't have that same fire. I wonder why?
KINGSPEED WHAT HAS GOTTEN INTO YOU?!?!?!
Very tough loss. I’m afraid
This lost kill my weekend
That was an absolutely trash effort from Dame too.
Some people saying he played alright - go back and watch the effort on defense.
His lack of willingness to drive to create a scoring opportunity or assist - also hurt. Too busy jacking the hero shot.
Really poor leadership and BBIQ all around for the Blazers this game.
Controversial take: Crowd was trash tonight.
Didnt have a whole lot to cheer for... but they did good when it did start to happen.
Can't understand how we can get 3 in 0.9 but can't get 2 in 25.5.
Crowd was completely into it to start the game ... as mentioned later in the thread, it's tough to get hyped when you keep taking bad shots and fall behind by 17 points.
Just got home, long crazy day. Watching the Timbers game and am about to partake in one of my favorite things after a loss......read the game thread. This one ought to be a doozy. Just ledge jumpin and suicide watch left and right......and then watch as soon as we made a run everybody is talking about a sweep to the finals again.....then whomp whomp whomp, some will freak out about Meyers going in the game. I’m sure 2 or 300 posts are about how the refs have it out for us or Scott’s should be fired. Well, here we go.....I’m still sticking with my Blazers in 6 prediction. #RipCity
Meyers being in the game and not doing what hes primarily in there for is a reason why 200-300 messages are about Stotts.
And no, there wasnt a lot of ref bashing. We shot ourselves in the foot, not the refs.
