The Portland Trail Blazers came away losers in their last outing, falling short to the Milwaukee Bucks 93-90, while out in New York the Knicks came away with the same result, falling to the L.A. Clippers 114-105.
New York Knicks
The New York Knicks just seem to be a little out of sink. At some points in the game, they did a great job moving the ball, and finding the open man.
However, things would also change quickly. It seemed like one play they’d move the ball, and then the next they’d dribble the shot clock to 22 seconds before jacking up a wild shot at the basket.
That just isn’t winning basketball, and it put the team behind early. But now they have a chance at redemption.
Next game they’re going to matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers, so they need to continue moving the ball.
The more the team continues finding open looks, the better they’ll play. Now it just comes down to seeing if they’re up to the task.
Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers fell short to the Milwaukee Bucks in their last outing. Yet, that wouldn’t have been the case, had they not took so many bad shots.
Portland shot just 19% from three-point territory. And for a team that relies so heavily on the three-ball, when shots aren’t falling, things can turn bad for them quickly.
But if they want that to change next game, they need to do a better job finding open looks from deep.
I mean just because it’s a three-pointer, that doesn’t always mean it’s the best shot. So if Portland can find better look from behind the arc, they’ll increase their chances of winning.
So if Portland can find a way to create more open looks from deep, they’ll give themselves a better chance at coming away with the “W”.
