L: Suns 125, Blazers 108
We managed to score, but obviously didn't defend too well. But honestly, did anybody think we were actually going to beat Pheonix tonight with Amare Stoudemire making his dramatic return?
BEASTLY PERFORMERS OF THE NIGHT:
VK38-22 Points, 12 Rebounds on 8 of 10 shooting.
Jarrett Jack-20 Points, 4 Assists, 4 Rebounds
Travis Outlaw-14 Points, 7 Rebounds
Martell Webster-5 Points, 5 Rebounds on 50% shooting in only 17 Minutes.
So Portland, all hope is not lost. If we get some veteran leadership, be patient and rid ourselves of Darius the future looks very, very bright.
-McMillan got tossed.
-It was mentioned during the game that had the SAR sign-and-trade gone through, we would have sent the pick from NJ to Pheonix for Leandro Barbosa. It's to bad we got screwed by Thorn, because Barbosa is having a breakout season and is/will become a very solid player. And we would have had his Bird Rights too, unlike Steve Blake. Oh well...
-Miles sat the entire game, what a coincidence...
