Recap Quick Notes:
• David lee scored another 23 points and grabbed 11 boards.
• I felt like I didn't see the same energy I saw against Phoenix. A lot of the 3's attempted by Golden State just didn't go in. Coach Jackson even mentioned they had opportunities to close out the game and control the lead. Portland proved them wrong.
• Oh yeah, Jamal Crawford drained a 3-pointer with 44 seconds left in the 4th. The Warriors couldn't answer.
• The Blazers showed up capitalizing on the Warriors funk that evening and making up for their loss against the Wizards. Gerald Wallace dropped 24 points, Nicolas Batum another 17 points and Marcus Camby with 12 points/11 rebounds.
• Monta on the bench in the 4th? Flu like symptoms? Nate had the hot hand but who should have really taken that last shot? I'm at odds with Coach leaving Nate on the floor, though he did have a hot hand...
David Lee - Back to Back beast mode performances, just not enough for a win this time around.
