Blazers’ Robinson Fueled by Matthews Advice

So Thomas Robinson sought out the only person he could think of to help him get through the moment. He sought out Wesley Matthews.

“I went to him, just explained what I was having problems with,” Robinson said. “Wes has been there for me all year.”

“I just told him he’s got to be a Jayhawk,” Matthews said, referring to the Kansas Jayhawks, Robinson’s college team. “His opportunity is here. We don’t have the luxury right now of trying to coast throughout the season, feel our way out, especially with this injury bug going on. So he’s got to step up. And that’s what I told him, ‘Play your game. You’re damned if you do, damned if you don’t.’ You’re going to play X amount of minutes regardless if you play well or not. So leave it all out there. You feel like shooting? Shoot the ball with confidence. If not, swing it, roll, crash the glass. You’ve got to make an impact.”
