Nowitzki considers Stotts a close friend. That doesn’t mean he’s not above giving him a ribbing. “He knows our team well, and he basically stole all our plays,” Nowitzki said. “We were going through the scouting report and I was like, we’re going against our own plays. He took our whole playbook here to Portland. But I get along with him great and I wish him nothing but the best.” Dallas Morning News

While questions of whether it's ball movement or missed shots, it's in the details where the Blazers are seeing more shortcomings than what shots they are missing. "I'm surprised we're not as good offensively as we had hoped," said head coach Terry Stotts on Monday. "Again, you can't take things for granted. Thirteen guys coming back you can't take it for granted. We have to do the things that create good offense." On blue paper written in cursive, Stotts had a "laundry list" of 10 things he wanted to look at offensively on a day when they worked mostly on end of game situations and getting better with their offensive sets. "The laundry list for offensive execution of things we can do better with screening and cutting and execution is all part of it," he said. Columbian

Head coach Terry Stotts, meanwhile, was quick to point to the differing-yet-valuable intangibles each bring to Portland's tight-knit roster. "Steve is a consummate professional," Stotts said of Blake. "He's one of the hardest playing guys that I've been around and leads by example. He's very competitive." In Kaman, Stotts noted the value the veteran big man offers to Portland's younger centers, particularly in using size and spacing on the floor. "What he offers Joel (Freeland) and Meyers (Leonard) is some mentorship, as well as veteran knowhow." Oregonian

"Terry seems real even-keeled, level headed,'' Kaman said. "He jokes a little bit, is serious a little bit. I like him so far. But it always starts off that you like a guy, but by the end of the year you can end up hating him. You just never know. Hopefully, I don't hate Terry.'' Oregonian
