Hawks, Blazers set for Monday night battle

Image

The Portland Trail Blazers have seemingly turned the corner by winning four consecutive games and doing so by playing solid defense and cranking up the offense.

The turnaround, which came after losing five consecutive games, has the Blazers (36-28) tied with Dallas (36-28) for sixth place in the Western Conference. Portland has eight games remaining after winning 129-119 Sunday at Boston.

Gotta get 2/3 this week. Portland/Phoenix/Indiana. Not gonna be easy, but gotta get it done.

I'll be paying close attention to the injury situation in Boston today after last night's foot entanglement of Brown and Tatum. Did not look good for Brown.

Bogi on fire. But standing alone on the weak side. We shall see if Trae gets paint touches and kick outs to Bogi this half.

Too much iso ball and guys jacking up shots off the dribble. Bogi is statistically much less efficient shooting that way.

We still want to see a little of Dunn despite health guards, not just to be used with depleted lineups or blowouts, what'd you sign him for?
Where the offseason has more buzz happens.

Per Nate - he's trying to develop some rhythm and chemistry between Lou, Huerter and Gallo in the 2nd unit so he can personalize some sets for them. Dunn being out for so long and still on minutes restrictions is getting the squeeze.

For me personally it was nice to see Gallo take 15 shots. This team has so many guys that can score on the first unit but Gallo has to take those shots on the second unit for this team to be as good as possible.
My eyes glaze over when reading alternative stat (not advanced stat) narratives that go many paragraphs long. If you can not make your point in 2 paragraphs it may not be a great point. :D
