A soulless Sunday in Portland brought about a 2-0 defeat (along with a lot of wasted chicken and rice) and a lack of upward momentum with a total of five games remaining in the regular season. While still only six points back from the playoff line, confidence is bleak, to say the least. If anything, a spirited showing in front of a home crowd is what’s needed to sustain any interest through the rest of the year.
