Here he is on last night’s game (the last section of the post):
If you simulate this game with the same shot attempts ten times, I’m not sure the Trail Blazers win more than three of the match-ups. Designating 30 of your 77 shot attempts as long 2-point jumpers is treacherous, but being lightning quick to the ball and to the glass has a way of mitigating those kinds of numbers.
One thing’s for certain: No two teams will be more interesting to watch during the “middle third of the season adjustment phase” than the Trail Blazers and Spurs.
In case you missed it, here’s Henry Abbott’s Christmas post to Blazer fans from yesterday.
