    Another team worse than we are. Can we get a win? Do we want one?

    Take the Spurs lightly and they’ll probably beat us. Bet against the Blazers the past 20 games and you’ll probably have quite a bit of cash

    This a great opportunity for us to do something different (new starting lineup, rotation, etc) so some can feel like that change led to the win and we've fixed our problems. Until the next loss at least.

    Which one?
    • Change?
    • Unwarranted optimism?
    • Another loss?

    No change. Many more losses. A lot of unwarranted optimism and thus a multitude of disappointment.

    Not interested. Team has to earn me back. I’ll keep an eye on it but I don’t think I’ll watch the whole thing.

    I think we'll get a win here because I think that the loss against the Lakers will have these guys playing sharper. Even though they are not well suited to play together or in Chauncey's system they have shown they can win despite those painfully obvious truths.

    This will be one of those wins but it won't mean we aren't still far far less than the sum of our parts and don't need a major overhaul.

    I'm watching minutes played at this point. Billups eluded to a trade being imminent and I'm wondering who will be included in that trade? Sure looks to me like Winslow is out. Starting to wonder about Nurk?

    This game has a good win probability. However, The upcoming Utah game will turn us into the loss column.

    Spurs going come out to play and they been giving top teams fits lately. This not going be a easy game for the blazers. Spurs has the top scoring bench in the league this year. Thing about the spurs there small like the blazers been there big problem all year long. But there scrappy type of team that won't quit out there. This first time Zach Collins will play against the blazers since his injuries.

    Wow, people “not interested” in their supposed favorite team’s games now? And I’M the one who isn’t a “real fan” because I don’t think we’ll win 65 games a season…. This place is nuts bro!
