What the hell, huh?SheedSoNasty said:Can't watch it and I'm not listening to it, but for the sake of tradition, I'll start one up.
Przybilla should have turned around and whooped his butt. I'm waiting for the big guy to kick someone's *** one of these days.SodaPopinski said:Classless move by Corliss Williamson clubbing Joel Przybilla in the back of the head from behind. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the NBA will turn a blind eye since it came against the Blazers.
Seriously? I got quite the opposite impression. There were some lapses which he paid for, but I thought he did a good job of staying with him. He forced Bibby into some tough positions. I think he was definately bothered that Sebastian was playing him so tight, not to mention the occasions which Bassy blew right by him. I think he played a good game, but should've definately pressed their offense a little more being that they were down with not much time left. Not saying that they should rush, but they should've been moving just a tad quicker to get into position.SodaPopinski said:Telfair's problem tonight is that he played horrible defense on Bibby. When you're playing a team like Sacramento, you can't give their playmaker the kind of room Bassy was giving him. Bibby had all kinds of room to either drive, pull up for a jumper or find the open man running through the screens.
So what's the plan now? Clearly the youth movement has taken a back seat and I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt that they're not just doing the youth movement badly. Here are some thoughts off the top of my head:Ed O said:Portland once again plays the veterans a lot of minutes and once more comes up short.
8 minutes for Khryapa, 5 for Ha and 22 for Outlaw.
41 minutes for Patterson, 38 for SAR and 26 for Damon (and it would have been more, if he hadn't walked off injured).
The Blazers showed a lot of spunk tonight, but they are too damaged to win even at home over this damaged Kings team. (I'm using the term "damaged" without judgment and not to have to fight everyone about it.)
