Either he didn’t know how much time was left or he didn’t want to take a tough shot. Either way, it was pathetic.

He’s got 12 points, 5-10, not a bad half. If he could only hit his free throws, his scoring avg would be a couple of points higher.

Overall, he looks good tonight.

Really annoying to see Fox jogging back on D several times, not squaring up his man, not getting into a defensive stance. Just not giving a shit.

Especially annoying when he let’s the ball roll to the halfcourt line, when bringing the ball up.

To be fair

1) This is vs the Kings
2) He’s a walking double double but he’s getting big minutes out of necessity on this team when he’s normally a 20 minute matchup dependent big on a playoff team. Not exactly a needle mover.

Whiteside did that for a whole season on the Blazers.

And nice you can have your own preference. I’ll take the 21 year old for the tank than the journeyman big.

The only differences between Dame and Fox: Dame has has the CLUTCH gene. Fox: Not so much, Fox can’t make his Ft’s, Dame shoots almost 93 Percent, Dame can lead the Blazers to 6 games over .500 with their 2 best starters out because of injury. Fox can almost put up a triple double in a losing effort. Ham and Kayte will say they didn’t win because A. it was a B2B B. a weird season C. Haliburton was out or D. All the above.

We had seven guys in double figures tonight and still couldn’t win. But we were 10 for 16 from the line and Portland was 24 for 25 from the line. How many games have we lost from the free throw line?

It’s really quite hilarious. The Blazers scored 123 and their second best player is 40 year old Melo. If Mccollum and Nurkic were playing this Kings teams would have lost by 20 or more. This can’t be emphasized enough. This team feasted on teams that had key injuries almost every game they played on that winning streak. Make 70 percent of this roster avail. 14-22 looks a lot better then this team really should be at this point. They look more like a 10-11 win team.
