    Blazers turned over the ball 18 times, a lot of those were unforced. Blazers are capableof playing better. Blazers win game 2 decisively.

    George needs to stop forcing 3s only if it’s not working for him early. He needs to get a rhythm in and make some mid-range/layups/free throws and slowly warm up to the 3 if it’s not dropping early.

    If anyone should be concerned it should be the blazers. Okc played bad and couldn’t buy a 3 and still only lost by five on the road.

    Stop jacking up 3s. Duh. There’s a reason why coaches didn’t allow it. It didn’t and doesn’t make sense in the playoffs besides GSW and maybe old skool Celtics with walker and Pierce

      Still could have won if Schroeder, Ferguson or Grant were able to hit. They should bench PG the rest of the series and let him heal. They don’t need him right now.

    Disappointed in VGundy. Russ had 3 Blazzers around him after that rebound. Having patience could’ve meant a trap. The fast break is also OKC best offensive weapon. No way was it better to slow it down there. Even so, let’s look at the play: Kanter bumped Russ after he gathered the rebound which threw off his rhythm and bobbled the dribble. It was still fine because he directed the ball on an open area. Adams dove on it and then…. instead of calling a time-out when they had 2 timeouts remaining he tries to make a pass from the floor. Tough decision in the run of play but common.

      Exactly but its russ so they will reach at anything to blame him they will say he shouldn’t have gotten the rebound and that he shouldn’t have passed to Paul to hit the 3 cuz that’s sTaT PaPPaDiNg

    Paul George has a shoulder injury. Did these guys not get the update? He’s playing hurt. He’s not in rhythm. I don’t think he’ll be 100% throughout the playoffs. Paul Pierce as usual..
