    The problem is we are not trapping Steph and klay whatsoever and lillard is always trapped thats coaching. Scotts doesn’t know how to set up traps

    Say what you want about gsw, they are good for a reason and their defense is underappreciated.

    I don't know whether to be moderately happy that we are only down nine after playing so poorly or if I should be upset at all the missed open makeable shots and the collapse in the last minute.

    Halftime Report: We have 11 more FTs than them and we are out rebounding them. Problem is Jerebko has 7 points and Dame has 5 turnovers.

    Dame seems to lost confidence in his 3 which is a cause for concern. But, to make things worse, he is trying too hard to do other things and it is backfiring so far.

    They don't have to guard 2 of the guys on the floor with Dame, but we have to guard all the guys playing with Steph.

    If any adjustments are made they should be on going big, get Dame some bodies to pass to down low when he drives.

    Blazers need to start hitting their 3 point shots, a few more of them and we'd would be right in this game at halftime instead of down by 9

    I don't even think it's good defense. It's just piss poor decision making.

    We are plus 11 at the line and down 9, eek. Take care of the ball and start making some shots and we can be there at the end. Need to get the fourth foul on Klay early in the third.

    Well duhh thanks to genius Kerr. Scotts doesn’t trap steph whatsoever they do pick n roll all day while lillard can not even get a shot off that’s because Scotts is a terrible coach
