The (4/28) Quarterly Report (Q3)


Ok, I’m watching in a (most excellent) bar, so there’s no sound on the teevee–what in the hell was going on with that EJ/CWebb/VDub commercial?  Can anybody help me out with that one?

Quick start for the Blazers, slow start for the Suns…until LMA gets himself a silly foul–followed by a STAT throwdown–followed by a Broy push to the rack and a blown layup!

That was a bad angle by TNT–it disguised just how awesome that pass was by Nash.  It also completely disguised the foul.  I did not see what the foul was from that angle.  I shan’t complain about such things.

Lots of sloppy play from both teams so far this quarter, but a little sloppier for the Suns…especially Nash.  There have been a couple of games like that in this series.  As such, I submit this letter:

  • Dear Alvin,
  • Steve is phenomenally good, but he is also, unfortunately, old and tired and he sometimes plays like that. Dragic can ball.  Steve, from where I’m sittin’, seems like the kind of guy who doesn’t have a big ego and if you say, “Hey Steve, take a blow.  Goran’s gonna play for a while.” would just say okay and cheer his lungs out on the bench.  Maybe I’m wrong, but it’s just a thought.
  • Love, Senor Sun-N-Gun

And the Suns go back up 14.  Nice.

Nice play out of the timeout for the Blazers, but LMA can’t hit.

The Blazers have got a little schwerve goin’ on here…that was some nice defense and solid block by Aldridge.

The Blazers are gonna end up with a pretty good eFG%, as they’re shooting like crap from 2, but 63% from 3.  eFG% weighs 3s as more important than 2s.  Duh.

WOW.  15-3 run by the Blazers.  They’re looking really strong right now…oh, and the dumb, dumb foul by Broy–but Dudley doesn’t make him pay for it.  Oh, and then Broy tries to flop on the other end to make up for it, but…FAIL.

Nice close to the quarter by the Suns to chill them Portlanders out just a bit, but this is a game.  This quarter should be fun to watch…see you at the finish!
