Missed the games this wknd but saw the box scores. Dude, nic. Wtf
He needs a new woman in his life to create his "oh face" and get on track.
Ya his good games are few and far between but only fair to bump this in the good as well as the (many) bad. And who knows, maybe this is the start of something?
27/10/5 (season high in points by far) but maybe even more importantly he also looked more active in general. And yes I know someone is going to bring up the last free throw. Wouldn't have been in the game period though at the end without him.
it sucks he didn't make the last ft but that is hardly the reason we lost. Dame should take his fair share tonight and really the last 5 games. He's a pretty big reason we've lost to the western playoff teams. Just chucks and chucks 3s like no tomorrow.
I'm more interested to see how he follows this up. He had a couple of good games when his Mom was in town for the holidays and then kind of vanished.
Let's see what happens. But good for Nico for having a good game. It was needed.
Very nice game for nic. Hopefully he builds on it, gets his confidence back and turns the corner on his slump.
The first game with at least 20 points since ........game 5 against Houston.
And that includes pre-season.
Nice game for Nic!
One good game out of 40 odd isn't acceptable though, hopefully he can perform at this level for the remainder of the season.
Well let's hope this is the start of a positive trend. If Batum can perform like he did this game, there isn't a team in the league that can stop us.
Once LA and Rolo get back, he'll regress, I think. I love Nic as a person and all that, but on the court he is soooo passive with all of them out there. I don't want him taking 21 shots, but I want him to at least LOOK for his shot when the opportunity arises. That is where he's lacking the most.
I don't care what he says here, I think that game was exactly what he needed to jump start his season.
Meh....let's see how he plays tonight. Go Blazers!
Sadly, it sounds like he's going to let the free throw eat at his confidence. And that's a death knell for a shooter.
I hope not.
We aren't just counting on you Nic, we're also rooting for you.
Thanks for keeping us in the game. You'll get the next one.
I think he's saying all the right things. Most of which have been reiterated by we forum members. I don't think it will shake his confidence at all.
Je suis tellement heureux que vous avez trouvé vos noix !

Like for actually making me use the translator and I wish I could like again for content! Lol
We're 7-0 when Batum doesn't play. It is known.
I don't think Crabbe took his spot tonight though.
Batum sucked so bad tonight that he put up a donout.
