[Guide] News on April 20, , the Blazers were bloodbathed by the Grizzlies 86-100 in an away game.
“The pioneers, the scenery is no longer, and this only proves one thing, chicken soup for the soul does not work.
Trailblazers are gone
The Trail Blazers, who defeated the Rockets last season, wanted to repeat history, but the Grizzlies’ defense and the advantage in the interior made the Blazers completely lost their way.
Especially Lillard, who kept talking before the game, scored only 14 points on 5 of 21 shots in the game.
Compared with the clichés of the players on both sides during the post-match interviews, the reporters were more interested in the small cards that can be seen everywhere in the visiting team’s locker room.
That’s bowl after bowl of chicken soup for the soul – “We are the city that rips apart”, “We will be tougher”, “Win the ultimate fight”, “Fighting together to get through the difficulties”, “Defensive end must XXX”.
The most interesting one is directed at Grizzlies center Gasol Jr., “We can no longer lose to the Spaniard.”
In 4 games of the regular season, the Blazers were swept by the Grizzlies, which also made the Blazers angry like chicken blood before the start of the playoffs, shouting “No team can beat us in one season 8
Trail Blazers coach Stotts and core Lillard both like chicken soup for the soul, especially Stotts, who likes to give inspirational quotes when he has nothing to do, and often quotes some movie lines when chatting with reporters.
This time, Stotts also hoped to arouse the fighting spirit of the players by sending out small cards.
It’s just that it has no other effect except to increase the difficulty of work for the arena cleaning staff.
Lillard is still stubborn: “We have nothing to lose, and then we just need to play well.” This is similar to his sentence before the game “focus on the first game, we still have a chance”
Perhaps this sentence will also appear on the small card next time. After all, it is a classic chicken soup for the soul.
