We would have considerable lead but Clippers have 7 more shot attempts in large part because our 9 turn overs. Though 6 in first quarter so really cleaning it up, need tighten it up even further in the 3rd.
Batum: 4 points 3/4 shooting 5 assists 4 rebounds 0 turn overs 0 fouls. Very nice very efficient line, curious what tape will reveal. I get feeling he past on few good shots in attempts for assists that did not work.
We had 22 rebounds at halftime last night and were leading in rebounds. Tonight we have 22 rebounds and are leading in that area. If we keep leading in that area and tighten up D a little bit we can take lead and W.
I was on and off watching the box score, and it looked like portland was leading early in the 3rd and then did not score at all really for the whole rest of the quarter and is now down significantly... is that at all correct? I wasn't watching very intently. Did they at least get some momentum for going into the 4th?
Batum players 35 minutes takes only 5 shots makes 3 of them and takes 0 3's. That is why we lost. He needs to take at LEAST 10 shots a game. He is becoming to obsessed with assists. It is causing his turn overs to go up and our points to go down.
