    What looked like a surefire 3-1 road trip could now become 0-4 if the Trail Blazers don't bring it tomorrow night. While the Wiz aren't a good team, they are young and dangerous. If Wall gets going early, he could spark his entire squad, namely JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche. Portland can easily get this W as long as they put it out all on the floor, much like they did last night in Boston. But they'll need help from the bench. Patty brought in a nice spark but we still need more scoring since Wesley was moved up into the starting lineup

    You know this team is in trouble when you start having to mention McGee and Blatche as possible Blazer assassins.  Talk about a reality check.  D, like I've stated in recent threads...Portland's scoring will remain anemic until they get some meaningful post production.  A jumpshooting team in need of jumpshooters doesn't win alot of games, particularly on the road, even against teams at the bottom of their divisions. 

    The Wiz may offer us all a glimpse into our own future...a team building thru the draft

    I agree Tom.  I've got a good feeling about this one also.  A Boston type effort today will translate into a win in Washington.  Let's hope we are right!

    I want to know what the Blazers will do to control Wall tonight. Does anyone think Batum > Wall?

    Agree the Blazers win tonight. 
      I don't think it's time to puch the panic button, and think of rebuilding through the draft yet.
    Sedare, I would throw AJ in against Wall, he has to learn.
    If we see Mills again, and less Nic,  I will be putting myself in timeout, because I won't have anything nice to say :)

    Go Blazers !!!!

    May even see some Patty on Wall action, I think Patty has some good speed to keep up with him and I also hear a may be moving up to the 2nd line PG!

    Someone on the bench needs to step it up, I liked the effort in BOS but a little more bench scoring would of probably gotten us the win. It would be nice to head home on a positive note and possibly get something rolling with WAS, then the Clippers at home on Sunday.

    Wow, I really thought we'd have some sense of urgency, instead Brandon was lackadaisical in handling the ball in the fourth and Nate kept going to him, Wes can't even dribble and a 10 point third quarter?!?! Then we play some D finally in the last 2 minutes of the game but it's TOO LATE to start then! This is getting ridiculous.

    I think Nate has to take the heat, he's the coach and it's his responsibility to  figure it out.  He has no answers for the mistakes in the 4th and for that he should be fired! NOW! ISO of Roy isn't working. we are the worst team in the nba right now and Nate can take credit for losing this season and team. We should get rid of him because he is at a loss with what to do with this team.

    Tough to swallow. We should have been able to beat a 5 win Wizards team, esp with Joel making his long-awaited debut. I'm really at a loss for words right now. Each winnable game we fail to capitalize on further continues the descend down the Western Conference playoff list

    Wow Nate sounded really angry. During the last few timeouts I was looking at the huddle and almost everyone was just looking around the arena while Nate was drawing up the plays. That's pretty bad. I really feel like they are not listening to him, as I have been saying for a long time, but how do you fix this? We fire him, who in the world are we gonna bring in? Who's better and available and wants to be here?

    A few things I think Nate should have done already is give Brandon even less minutes lately, because it is obvious he is not the same so he either needs more rest, or he needs time to redesign his game to support his new strategy of playing with his bad knees. I really hope Nate doesn't go to Wes Matthews any more with the game on the line for some ball handling, he has mis-dribbled the ball several times now with the game on the line.

    I feel bad for Nate because he's a nice guy, but he is not getting the job done.

    Simply unacceptable to go 8 minutes in the 4th without a field goal. Where's Brandon at? Where's LA at? These two are supposed to be our cornerstones yet they have hid in recent 4th quarters. I will always love my Blazers, but this is a pretty low point of my fandom. We can't even win on Joel Przybilla return night for Pete's sake!!!!

    Loved seeing Joel out there setting godlike picks, taking charges and all the little things we love him for. 

    As for the game...i'm with Hawes, there are no words to describe these 2nd half comas we go into.

    Or you can be as creative as Nate and say, "We didn't make shots".

    Nate should say, "we didn't make shots for the last 6 games" and "I have no answer for our problems."

    Teams tighten up the defense in the paint, forcing the Blazers to shoot outside shots. The only players that has been consistantly hitting outside shots are Brandon and Lamarcus. When everybody else on the team has to drive the basket to score, the opposing defense just creates a basic mosh pit in the lane, which makes passing and shooting inside difficult for the Blazers.

    Babbitt, let Babbitt try and stroke some out there Coach. Patty swished one. We have got to get the defense to respond to outside shooters.

    SO wall hardly gets a shot off, and aldridge nabs about 18 boards, and this team still cant win?

    I mean its the washington wizards for crying out loud, they care more about the next NRA meeting, than the next game.
    Areneas is good yeah, but he's not great.
