First of all, a big thank you to all of our listeners who have been connecting with us during these late night broadcasts here on the west coast. The spirit has been fantastic.
As for the basketball.....
It was not a good sign when Marcin Gortat's pregame routine was interrupted by a strained back. Gortat was forced to the sideline, The Wizards played through before a late first half collapse that set the stage for a 116-103 loss in Portland.
Up and down night in Portland
Randy Wittman--End of first half changed game.
"We're up 51-45 with 53 seconds and they go on an 8-0 run in 53 seconds. You cannot treat the game that way. We just play sometimes and you have to close that quarter out with a lead. To give up eight points in 53 seconds is hard to do. Even if we weren't even out on the floor, it'd be hard for them to score eight points in 53 seconds and that sucked a lot of our air out of us coming into half time. We're up six and then be down two and then, as you could tell, I thought the first couple minutes of the third quarter, we were still dragging from that, but we have to learn. Sacramento, again, a squander at the end. You can't squander. You work too hard in this league to get leads against good teams and to throw it away in 53 seconds hurts."
It's the Lakers tonight. Remember last year against the Lakers here in Los Angeles?
In sixty seconds the last time against the Lakers in LA.
And if you have more time, the story of the win over the Lakers last year in LA in ten minutes.
