Pilots reap the benefits of playing in the friendly confines of Chiles Center. Cut deficit to 56. Nothin' like a little home cooking!

81-67 Zags. Bit of a hangover from playing them back to back. I would like to see us play some full court press just for practice.

Going to retract this and:

After being humiliated in Spokane, the Zags come out and pour in 30 points before the 10:00 in the first half.

If Collins is ready for the NBA, I'm ready to be Mark fews successor next year. Guy has trouble rebounding and doing work vs portlands bigs. Tons of talent but needs seasoning

Goss took a good one. I don't think it was the hit, just the sudden stop when he hit the floor.

Little bit more Rui tonight. Nice.

Zagsfan, you do realize Collins lead the team in rebounding in only 18mins right.

Scratching my head a little in that. In fact he has as many as Karnowski and Williams combined. Help me out here. Oh, and 2 steels and 4 blocks. Tough Fan base.

I do feel that the guards needed to rebound a lot better.

Also of note on your young footer. Count how many times that he leads the break or is first back on defense. Not sure you realize that footers just don't do that.

Wonder is Melson is sick. Didn't seem his self tonight.

Cats and Zags won. It's a good night and time for a beer or two.

Sleepwalk through the game, sloppy play, tons of turnovers, not much energy and enthusiasm. Oh, and we win by 20+. Yay WCC!!

Yeah, I was scratchin' my head on this too. Collins' numbers are solid in my book, especially so when you consider his minutes played. The kid is only going to get better.

NWG has earned a rest from this one. I hope he gets it!

Nice opportunity to see if the boys can be angry enough to rebound... Go get the ball! long stretch with multiple games. I'd platoon as much as possible . We have the talent to do that. Zags by 30 or more.
I think Nigel was "hip checked" not eatly a clean play.
THis rebounding tonight was horrid. We must clean this up or face a shortned outcome.

Based on what we saw last night I am revising this. Zags shore up the weak side defensive glass, and play with some fire. Hoping Nigel is OK and sits this one out. 91-48 Zags.

Assuming Nigel sits. I think UP was in the game for a good part of it and they will be playing really hard once again. It's about believing in themselves. I think they see it as a possible win and will fight hard, so this might be closer than we think. I hope for the blowout, but....

It's not always about numbers and stats sheets. Far too often Collins is out of position for a rebound, does not box out, and is not physically strong enough yet to refrain from being stripped by players the caliber of Portland. I watch a game through the lens of a coach, others look at stats. He will be a good one but needs to put more emphasis on getting stronger and fighting for rebounding position before the ball goes up--anticipating the shot. Right now he relies strictly on his height and athleticism which will not be as superior at the next level

86-52 Zags. I'm hoping for more effort. Especially on the glass. Hoping we get ahead enough to give 6-11 significant time.

I have to think that the staff had at least a short discussion with the team about their effort Sat and made some remediation. I am expecting a better effort, with or without NWG.

The Pilots & Zags played up in Spokane,
Now down to Portland to do it again.
The Zags will score plenty,
And win number twenty,
While Portland still searches for ten !

I would be happy with a 15 to 20pt win and the second string getting some minutes. It would be nice to slowly expand to a 10 man rotation by March. Since the opponents are a little bit easier now lets give it purpose.

I am not sure if the Zags continue to experiment and expand on their sets like they did on Sat (Before Sat, I never seen them run a pick and pop with Karno and they ran it 3 or 4 times that night) I think not (better to run new stuff at home) so
