Looks like KCP's been given a huge responsibility this series.

We are not attacking at all on offense. Meanwhile, all these elite 3 and D guys on this team are doing their usual half ass job defending.

They have no confidence with their threes, for good reasons.

True.. but not much reason in driving into a wall of decent bigs, as they're doing now.

Blazers are switched on since they got in Orlando.. Lakeshow stilllllll feeling it out.. :noway: :noway:

We need Dwight in there. McGee is not a good low post defender because Nurk and Whiteside are both too strong for him.

Being a prisoner of the moment here, I guess, but if this team was in this kind of state, why did Vogel sit DNP them down the stretch? This team needed more time playing together, not rest after sitting on their asses for five months.

One thing I noticed, LBJ used to be a terror on fast break. In this game, he was atrocious. Can't seem to get anywhere when he is on the run at all.

It’s time to accept the truth and be realistic with James. He’s not the old James anymore.

Main thing that I noticed about him since last year is he can’t take over games anymore during crucial times.

This team is terrible at 3pt, we knew they were poor, but not this bad. We ain't beating Portland.
Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Should we pass this first round test, the 2nd round vs houston and conference finals vs clippers just might be our undoing. We cannot find a bucket from the perimeter. Weve seen some guys jack shots, and when it aint it goin, they'll pull it back and pass the ball away. Of course KOBE never had that problem. But Danny Green missed 1 shot and i had seen it immediately in his game, he was gun shy. THIS WAS THE FIRST FEW MINUTES OF THE FIRST QUARTER! Dude lost confidence in is shot before the 1st quarter ended. There seems to be a CONFIDENCE problem with our shooters. cant place my finger on it, maybe the bubble, whatever, but our shooting during this bubble period has fallen over the cliff. Hopefully we can pick it back up somehow next game
