Default O'Neill's "Legacy" Lives On?

Uh-oh ... I hope this doesn't mean our offense now struggles.

But everybody involved will need time to grow accustomed to it.

"Even the coaches said and some of the players were saying late in the game, ‘We've got to abandon, we've got to lean on (Portland's) three-point shooters,' " Triano said about the panic that set in while the Trail Blazers were hitting 12 of their 24 three-point attempts. "And I said, ‘No, we have got to stick with it because if we show them a sign of our weakness, that we're going to change, then we're going to have to teach it all over.

"And they missed the last few threes, and got the rebounds, unfortunately."
