Keep your legs
One trend that keeps popping up this season is the Blazers inability to finish in close games. After a few minutes of anger I decided to give the team a break for playing the third game in three nights. Both teams played terribly last night. Only giving up 74 and 71 points respectively would point to good defense. That wasn't the case last night. Fatigue and poor shot selection were the main reasons neither team could seize control down the stretch. But unfortunately for Portland their drought occurred late in the game unlike the Clippers, which happened before half time. My frustrations were doubled with the university of Oregon blowing a late lead earlier in the night against Cal. Something has to give in Portland. The short season doesn't allow much leeway for many more games to get away.
