Bad Box Scores: The Blazers Have 30 Points At Halftime

So this is bad. Not just bad, though ... something worse than that: Horrendous, turrible (Charles Barkley voice), not-even-watchable. Whatever it is, the Blazers are getting absolutely run by the Boston Celtics. It's 65-30 at halftime. Blazers fans are quickly descending into madness.

We need to talk about this, so let's head to the box score.

Here's the box score, screencapped to be preserved forever.

  • Lamarcus Aldridge has 16 points, which would seem decent enough. Then you realize no other Portland player has more than five. Suddenly, Aldridge's 6-of-9 shooting seems kind of hollow.
  • Aldridge and Nicolas Batum, who has the aforementioned five points, are the only Blazers to make more than one shot. Batum is 2-of-3.
  • The Celtics are on pace to cruise to an easy 130-60 win. That's gotta be some kind of record.
  • Boston has more assists (15) than Portland has makes (12).
  • But hey, Portland's leading the rebounding battle and is shooting better, percentage-wise, from the line!
  • Marcus Camby did this in the first half. Kind of sums up the first half for Portland.

Speaking of madness, let's check in on our Blazers blog:

Might be a good time to turn on some college basketball, Blazers fans. Maybe it'll take the pain away.
