Blazers fans, see that photo? It pretty much sums up everything.
The team looked flat, Oden looked terrible (and wounded, the unofficial word is a "mid-foot sprain"), and no matter how bright this team's future is, they are a long way from being as good as the Lakers. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.
(Unless Oden gets hit by a car tomorrow, which I wouldn't rule out right now.)
