08:05 AM ET 11.29 | For Portland, the Wizards picked a bad time to end their winless streak. All of the early-season mojo the Blazers had created, when they played free and easy and fun, had devolved into an ugly, lethargic mess, and the team appeared to be teetering toward a free-fall. ... As [Wesley Matthews] told the Blazers to keep the faith, Blazers sage Jared Jeffries added his own pointed message. The Blazers have approached a crossroads and they have one of two paths to take. "Games like this define your season," Jeffries said. "Because after this game, either you bounce back and you say, 'This is who we are, this is who we're going to be.' Or you let this loss linger and you look up and you are one of these teams that can lose 11 in a row, 12 in a row."

they weren't going to go 0-82. Once Wall and Nene gets back they will be half decent. But good knowing Jared Jefferies is still in the league though. It's really true there's someone for everyone.
