Dwight: They gave the game away… They got drilled
“They got drilled.”
Dwight Jaynes on Talkin’ Ball tried to make sense of the Blazers’ performance in Game 3 in only the way Dwight can.
“This is a joke, really. It was an embarrassment. You go out in a game like this in front of the whole country and play like this. I mean seriously, how many turnovers? Oh 24, for how many points? Oh 35 points! 35 points they gave up on turnovers…
They gave the game away… They got drilled.”
“Mirotic gets whatever he wants.”
Dwight on Nikola Mirotic’s 30 points in 30 minutes of play. Mirotic went 12-of-15 from the floor and 4-of-6 from three-point range vs. Portland on Thursday night.
“Mirotic just pulls up and hit the three over the top… Mirotic gets whatever he wants and you see the result of it tonight, 12-of-15 from the floor.”
“Great players have to deal with that.”
Dwight on Damian Lillard having another rough shooting night after going 5-of-14 from the field.
“They’re doubling him. They’re tripling him—I understand that, but he’s a great player and great players have to deal with things like that. Look… If you can’t make your shots away, just make passes… Then set somebody else up. I don't get it.”
