Felt like nurk was tired at the end and we probably should’ve used whiteside in a reserve role as to give Jusuf a Little break at the end

Very tough to in with our current bench situation, no Hood/Ariza/Zach leaves us with little to no chance, just too much pressure and minutes on the starters. IMO really need to revamp this roster, doubt of Olshey has the desire to do so however

And it's forced us to play guys that shouldn't be sniffing the court.

I disagree. Terry hit his panic button like always, went super small bringing Simons into the rotation, and played GTJ heavy at the 3. Terry's Small Ball... It's the same dumb move again and again. Insanity by definition.

Everyone is capping on the refs for the free throw disparity, especially in the first half. But they only did that because the Lakers weren't making their free throws while the Blazers were making shots. Momentum stays more in the Lakers favor and there is no need to rig the game through officiating.

I do agree that Stotts needed to go and fight for his guys by getting a tech during that game. Even thrown out if necessary. At least draw attention to it. Make it a topic of conversation in the media.

It would certainly help me emotionally (and others also). Yet the downside is even worse bias from the refs who are protected from league punishments and don't care about public opinion (the refs). That may happen, however, the elimination game if not close.
