The Afterparty: Blazers/Hornets Game 10

A party full of post-game links and coverage to give you every over-analyzed angle in hopes of making your Blazers IQ that much greater. 

The 8 point difference in the box score doesn't necessarily represent the full gamut here.  The Blazers controlled this thing from the second quarter on and were never really threatened by the Hornets even with Chris Paul in the game.  When you talk about holding a superstar in check, you hope to just hold him under his averages, not completely shut him the hell down.  Not sure that one individual deserves the credit for this feat, but a huge hat tip to some team defense for once.

And yes, it was an overall ugly performance, but what I take from that, is this team can finally win and put teams away even on an off night.  We couldn't say that in years past.  On a night where the team shot 36% from the field, they still almost had a 5th straight 10+ point win.  Not bad right?  Things arrrrrrrrrrrrre a clickin'!

On a side note, Jess "The Body" Ventura new coach Jeff Bower received his first beatdown.  Welcome to coaching governor boss.

Glad to see you're warming up to this team!

And I can't speak for our cheerleaders, but the Beavers Dance Team gets a thumbs up.

Wait a's not like I was ever against this team, just showing concern as any reasonable fan should have. Gotta love the longest current win streak in the NBA though!

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
