L: San Antonio Spurs 86, Blazers 82
Wow...this team has come really far really fast. A few months ago, this was the team that blew us out by 40. Now, we lose by four and take the lead late in the fourth quarter. Quite frankly, I'm impressed and thinkthat this team has the potential to make a run at .500, but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves here. This team still has issues, and the main ones I can think of right now are not making clutch free throws and Sebastian thinking he has been magically transformed into Ray Allen. I still like the kid, and am pulling for him to succeed, but there is nothing more fustrating then watching him go 1 for 6 and still keep jacking up rediculous shots even when he knows they aren't falling. At one point, there were 5 consecutive possesions in which Bassy took a quick shot, and the Blazers failed to score on 4 of them. This needs to stop if he's going to succeed/we are going to win. One positive, however, was that Theo, Joel and Z-Bo had beastly games yet again. Looking forward to what should amount to an intense game against a vastly improved Minnesota team on Friday.
