The (4/20) Quarterly Report (#3)

Here’s something I missed at halftime…Professor Hollinger pointed out that the only reason the Blazers were still in the game was that their bench was keeping them in it. The Blazer bench was 8-of-14 for 19 points, while the Suns’ bench was only 2-of-13 for 7 points.  That’s the exact opposite of Game 1; the Blazers’ starters dominated the Suns, while the bench kept it within shouting distance.  Usually, the Suns’ bench dominates the opponent’s bench, and that’s when it either gets close (if the starters had a bad start) or they start to pull away.

Wow.  This game is not what I thought it was going to be.  This is total and complete dominance.  Are the Suns this much better than the Blazers?  I reckon not.  But they have done, so far, everything they needed to do to rectify all the things they didn’t do in the last game.

I’ll be back after the game to talk about the play of Earl Clark and Taylor Griffin, and to start thinking about what comes next…
