    If they lose this game they will drop out of the playoff positions in the standings!
    Must Win Game! The season is on the line!
    Might have to start warming up the tank!
    Gonna be tough to catch the Rockets and Pistons.

    I just assumed that everything you say during the games is for the sole purpose of the "reverse jinx". So now you are saying you actually believe everything you say? I am confused.

    Not necessarily. Lots of other playoff teams playing and they could lose too.

    It's good to have a lot of tough games. Do you get better playing Detroit and Houston? Probably not. The only time it matters to be the best in the west is 1 second before the tipoff in the finals.

    Caris LeVert.....
    My #1 fav player in the league...
    Love his hustle, and unselfishness. Has yet to find a team that knows how to utilize him.
    Not a game changer by any means, not even close to an AllStar, but just something about the way he plays.
    (plus...a super nice dude...easy to root for..)

    Sharpe didn't start the game in New Orleans (or even play).
    Winslow did.
    The last good Portland win.
    Nothing against Sharpe, but I would like to see that group start again with Nurkic in for Eubanks if Nurk can play.
    Edit: Little and Watford were the first off the bench in New Orleans. Jabari Walker got 8 minutes.
    Sharpe didn't play at all because of injury.

    I've wanted to see a lineup similar to the one that won the 4 games before the tank last season. I think they would be good. Jerami Grant certainly has to be an upgrade over CJ Elleby.
    Simons, Hart, Winslow, Grant, Nurkic. Please make it happen Billups.

    Maybe Justice will be our 2nd best player by the end of the season.
