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.
If there is one positive note to take away from this 3-game losing streak, it's that the Blazers can look at Tiger Woods and say, "At least we're not THAT guy!" Other than that, they should all be kneeling at the alter of Naismith and begging for basketball forgiveness. I'm not even sure that "uninspired" is a harsh enough term to use anymore. Lackluster? Pathetic? Spiritless? Characterless? Halfhearted? None of these seem fitting either.
So where does this team go now? For starters, 3 full days of practice might help. Someone should stop by a roasted nut shop and buy LaMarcus Aldridge a pair. Brandon Roy can pick up this book for some new ideas. Finally, fans can watch their oh-so-meaningful Thursday night football game and the organization can cancel theme nights forever.
It's going to be a long and windy road through the month of December and we should all be concerned. This team has too many injuries and too many tough opponents on the horizon for anyone to be sitting comfortably in their cubicles. After Saturday against the Rockets, the Blazers hit the road for 4 games, come back for a few, and then enter a closing month stretch which includes Phoenix, Orlando, Miami, Dallas, San Antonio and Denver in a row over just 10 days. Someone shoot me now.
