Blazers-Thunder: The real March Madness
“When you have a guy as hot as CJ McCollum, you’ve got to keep getting him the ball.”
Dwight Jaynes on Talkin’ Ball said he would’ve liked to see the ball in McCollum’s hands more in the final quarter.
“Portland always talks about playing the game the right way. Okay, the right way is when--- you have a guy as hot as CJ McCollum, you’ve got to keep getting him the ball until he misses.
They missed a lot of opportunities to take advantage of how hot he was… HE WAS ON FIRE in the 4th quarter!”
“This is the real March Madness.”
Dwight seems ready for the postseason when you hear him talking about the Blazers 108-105 win over OKC on Sunday.
“You talk about March Madness… This is the real March Madness right here. This is crazy stuff!
What an enjoyable game though… A little bit of everything; good ole fashion pushing match.”
“This is what we expected from him this season.”
Dwight on the recent play of Jusuf Nurkic.
“This is what we expected from him this season. We’ll expect more though as he stays in the league and with this team longer. You have every right to expect improvement every year and I think we’ll see it.
We’re finally seeing the Nurkic that we thought we would see from the start.”
(Nurkic went 8-of-13 from the floor to score 17 points and he pulled down 12 rebounds vs. OKC.)
