Let me see your up 40 in the 4th quarter against the worst team in the league and you don't pull all of your starters? Late in the 3rd the bottom of the bench should go in with the intention of leaving them out there till the end to see what they can do. Instead the bottom 3 in the rotation get 3 1/2 minutes at the very end so you get no real idea of what they can do because it is such garbage time when they get in. That is poor coaching by Nate and someone in the organization should say something. Leaving starting players in during complete garbage time is asking no begging for injury. We were lucky there was no flagrant foul injuring a key player. I hope someone out there thinks along the same lines as me in this situation. I love the Blazers and am tired of all the injuries of the past couple of seasons and feel whenever possible we should avoid precarious situations that are unnecessary.  GO BLAZERS !!!!!!

  1. I disagree. Playing regular rotation players that need to get a rhythm going into the playoffs is good coaching. Don't you think that's better than letting rookies that WON'T see any time in the post-season run the floor?

  2. Read Casey's blog. Sarah touched on it, but you'll get an idea as to why Nate kept them in.
