    I'm not disappointed by the result, but I am disappointed by the mental fortitude of the players. The first five minutes of the game we looked switched on, and the Warriors looked half asleep. Then GS realised that they would actually have to play tonight, and we went to water. I am trying to temper my disappointment with the knowledge that we are the youngest team in the entire NBA, and this experience can only be of value in teaching inexperienced players what playoff basketball is all about.

    Fulltime
    Us - 81
    Them - 110

    FG%
    Us - 33.3%
    Them - 44%

    Both teams shot poorly from downtown

    3P%
    Us - 20.6%
    Them - 31.3%

    I think the ast differential was more a result of us missing wide open shots, rather than a lack of willingness to share the ball

    Ast
    Us - 17
    Them - 31

    I know we were missing layups, and weren't getting foul calls because "playoffs", but maybe we should have gone inside more?

    Points in the Paint
    Us - 36
    Them - 50

    Also congratulations to all of you who are talking shit that doesn't actually contribute anything meaningful. If you want to be pissed about the loss go for it, you deserve to be...But don't come here and make yourself look like a fool in the process.

    Exactly. We proved game 1 that even if our stars play awesome, we have no chance without Nurk. So without the stars playing awesome, we got rocked. With Nurkic, everyone is better and if we win two WITH Nurkic, Warriors will be worried come game 5. As they should be.

    Thoroughly out-coached.
    Dame, once again, not playing smart.

    Bitterly disappointed in the lack of effort, no resolve then quick fold.

    The ol' Rope a dope. I love it. Get 'em nice and cocky so they're left reeling after Nurk drops 30-20 on them. It'll setup the backdoor sweep perfectly. Well played, Stotts. Well played.

    Very few teams have come back from 0-2 but the Blazers have done it twice!

    Not sure about responding, because most of our players didn't even look upset being smashed. There was disappointment maybe, maybe they were sad...

    I didn't see whole game. Was anyone angry at any point of the game? Coach? Dame? CJ? (Because I don't have any hope for rest of our players)

    Well we were a sub .500 team when we had 2 centers on the team(Ed Davis/Plumlee), one of which wasn't that bad, now we have 0 centers and it shows. Wasn't a fun game to watch, we looked out of it and like we didn't care but without a big we can't even stop two guys who aren't very good, one of which was almost out of the league for good in McGee.
