We better come out with focus and intensity and finish them off today. Don’t want to waste time playing a game 6. We need to keep the momentum going even tho it’s a big ask with all these stoppages and other stuff. Hopefully we’ve switched on and will stay switched on.

Anyone if Rondo will play? Dude needs to get some minutes because our ball handlers other than Bron have been trash.

He practiced yesterday but won’t play. Waiters has a headache so he’s also doubtful.

Since when is a headache an excuse to not play?

I don’t know what to tell you man. Lol. They said it was a migraine but we all know that word is misused a lot to describe headaches.

Blazers have only 9 players dressed today.

Playing with his toys basically to see if a switching matchup zone can be ran.

The problem is Caruso keeps losing the ball so it’s hard to see

Kuzma is one of the worst fast break players I’ve ever seen.

Just going through the motions right now. Would like to see a 3-4 minute stretch where we just lock down and put this game away.

For a 6 9 guy Kuz is really bad at finishing around the rim.

Finishing more about skill than size. Kuzma looks like he lacks a plan attacking the rim.

Just seems like he over complicates things. Attemped the 360 layup a couple games ago and botched a point blank layup today by opting to reverse it instead.
