The Blazers have to be considered the most vulnerable of all the higher seeds. They don't have Nurkic, and CJ only recently returned from injury. One of the best home teams in the NBA, so OKC will like their chances if they win one of the first two games.

I'm not giving the Blazers any excuses. Nurkic was a huge part of the team but one player shouldn't stop you from winning a first round series. This is still a team game. The better team has to prove it. If Stotts can't get out of the first round I'd consider firing him.


He has to win at least 2 games from OKC. Time for Lillard ans Stotts to step up.

Imagine if OKC doesn't win this series... would be a massive disaster for the organization

I mean to acquire a superstar like PG and have the best supporting role players they've ever had in OKC and not make it out of the 1st round... just wow

Durant's impact is so underrated and underappreciated by all walks of fans who don't actually know the game. The fact that they replaced KD with a 2-way superstar, Westbrook supposedly at his best, have a better head coach and better role players... yet 1st round fodder to an injured Portland team? 3 straight 1st round exits without KD? It's already been a disaster without him and him leaving OKC has already been well justified because it's proven Westbrook's style either as 1st or 2nd option is nowhere near conducive to winning anything of relevance, but losing to a shitty Portland team would really put the cherry on top of a disastrous management of talent over the years. Prioritizing Ibaka over Harden in 2012 may very well be the worst decision in the history of professional basketball. The difference between a dominant dynasty and a team who will literally never win a championship. Yikes. :confusedshrug:

At first I was leaning towards OKC but I think the Blazer's depth will outlast them in 6. Then you add in PG's shoulder and Chuckbrook's broken jumpshot and they may be in for an early summer.

Yeah. I will say that Westbrook is clearly not the same player he was between 2014-2017. When he was scoring at around 53-55 TS% he was a legitimate top five or so level player. Now that he's shooting at 50 TS%, there's a dramatic reduction in his impact. He's just not a good scorer anymore, so the expectations shoudn't even be the same. He's a top 15-20 player now.

Yep, he needs to realize he is the best player in this series. Dude keeps trying to get Adams involved as if that will do anything. Kanter is doing his thing. Westbrook needs to NUT up, he plays well in the hectic style. He's not gonna win adhering to some system, they don't have enough shooters to work well in a system.

Another first round L here is just a big W for KD family. Replaced KD with a top 5 guy at the same position, built an overall better team, and still can't get out of round 1....WB needs this series badly, was gifted such easy match-ups to make it to the WCF and still may fail.:roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

No he didn't. So he didn't pressure Lillard 30 feet away.... Lillard aint Steph :confusedshrug: Plus it looked like he hurt his ankle, so he couldn't press. Blame that on coaching, I would have switched PG onto him and Russ onto CJ. Donovan doesn't do any real coaching. The guy had Felton in the game... :lol

Lillard has done this before, hitting crazy three pointers in the clutch. The game suddenly in reach, team's got some momentum you got to at least be hyped up enough to put pressure on the ball handler especially if he is your primary assignment.

Ah, don't remind me of that fool Donovan, he has to go, the FO gotta go for Joerger before somebody else snatches him up.

He usually doesn't counter the other coach's adjustments or is too late, he barely ever takes initiative and most of the time his out of timeout plays are badly designed.

Ah thanks, what do you think about his gameplans going into series? Do you feel like the team is usually pretty well-prepared going in?

Also, from an outside perspective, it seems Westbrook busts plays a lot. Do you place 100 percent blame on Donovan for the plays out of timeouts being busts, or do you think Westbrook is at fault for much of it too?

If a head coach cannot keep a player under control it's his fault for not earning the respect of the team's star. Westbrook is wayward by nature and I don't blame him for what he is but only when he makes mistakes like one I criticised him for in my earlier posts.

most of Davis defenses have been bottom 5 defenses. No alltime great defender anchors as consistently poor defenses as he did

They don't really need to stop the Thunder. OKC gets easy twos with Adams early and Blazers make threes. Then OKC realized that's not working mathematically in their favor and they try to outshoot Portland with bad shooters. I don't care how much Adams owns Kanter. Adams is not going to score 30 or 40 a night. He's not Shaq.
