    Rupert has shown he can hit three-pointers.

    in this game, his teammates are 4-18 on threes.

    It's a classic competitive tank. There's at least 3 legit pros in the Blazers lineup

    Now it's that time in the game where the Blazers passed the ball to Grant and everybody stands and watches him.

    Why are we playing these guards off the street rather than Rupert?

    Maybe Rupert is utter garbage, but we may as well either get him experience and see if he gets better and figure out if we want to invest further in his development.

    What’s more impressive: Holding the Pelicans to 93 points or our offense scoring only 84 points?

    Just to note: The Lakers put up 87 points on the Pelicans yesterday…………… in the first half.

    Might be an indicator of where Rupert's skill level is today.

    I don't think Holton knows the definition of "stat stuffing" because he said that Ayton was doing that tonight but they were meaningful and kept us in the game.

    I think you’re confusing ‘stat stuffing’ with ‘stat padding’. I think he just means he’s stuffing the stat sheet.

    As compared to guys who shot 5-14 and 1-3 and made One three-pointer between them.

    Scoot was extra extra shouty from the Blazers sidelines. He deserves the Freddy's golden shopping cart award.

    There are worse players than that, so it is entirely possible.

    I hope it's not the case, but it's not like we've seen Rupert go out and dominate the NBA.

    Thybulle averaging 3ast, 3stl, 1 blk in last 4 games. His shooting percentages have dipped, but Matisse is playing good ball.

    We will undoubtedly use at least one of our picks on a wing. It's time to trade him and go all in on developing Murray, Rupert, and Camara. I'll take a first.

    I guess that will be something to discuss in four or five months.
