Hornets are the only team that doesnt learn from there mistakes.. sigh, Good game from Anderson everyone else besides rivers, not so good
I'm just upset that Grevis got the last shot. I would have like the play be for Anderson, Davis, or Rivers these players are the future of this team not Vasquez they should be taking the key shoots. I love the effort we played with in the fourth quarter.
I thought the rule was that there had to be at least 0:03 for a catch and shoot.
I think they played it right. Give props to Lillard because he even released it a bit early in his motion. Still made it.
Good effort bringing the team back within striking distance tonight from Ryno, Gravy, Davis, Rivers and Lance. I will not be so hard on Gravy as everyone else has been so far, however his defense and turnover differential needs to improve as soon as possible. On defense he's caught out of position too many times. On offense he's making bad passes at critical junctures during the game. Time will tell though when EG10 gets back into the rotation. Davis needs to hit the weights hard this offseason and improve his conditioning. He looked a little tired tonight. Rivers needs to practice on his mid-range jumpers. Lance needs to improve his mid-range jumper and ball-handling.
Now, it seems Aminu will be traded soon. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if Lopez is on the trade table. Your thoughts?
For the record, one of the main gripes I've had with Monty since year 1 is his ability to draw up a good late game play. Byron Scott was great at those, so was Tim Floyd.
Vasquez was definitely finding Davis more today, though not enough to everyone's liking. I don't think that is a hard fix, Vasquez did it a lot in Memphis, he's not blind
Great effort by the team... Davis ended up having a good game. Anderson was fantastic and Vasquez had the usual good and bad. Huge shot by Rivers at the end as well.
Also I want more Lance Thomas at the 3 from now on. I think he's earned it.
Let's also give it up for What's-his-name! The guy we signed yesterday! He didn't suck hardly at all barely.
If I was Davis I would be mad as hell at Gravy, too many missed opportunities for lobs missed tonight
I have watched all his games this year(i feel in love with his play while scouting lol) my only knock is his defense it has been mediocre at best. I projected he would be a plus defender and he hasn't been. He has the tools but Portland's bench is so bad they need him to play 40mpg so maybe he just cant give the effort required or maybe I just overrated his D.
