    That's what I predict our record will be on New Year's Eve as we ring in 2020. Our only losses will be at Clippers and at Jazz and both losses will be in overtime. Believe Harder! Bump this thread later.

    find an alternate universe where Nurk and Collins are injury free and CJ has been traded to another team

    Let’s just pray for 10-10 and move on from there.

    10 and 10 might be a miracle.

    My pinwheel fever and constant homerism obviously affected my decision when I went with 10-10 in the other thread.!

    lol...yeah 23-2 seems likely. That would only be the best 25 game stretch in Blazer history (guessing) and the team has done nothing but inspire confidence.

    They played, in stretches, against Denver really good and Philadelphia good. The 3-1 road trip was confidence building too. It's losing to the Spurs (after leading by 19), the Warriors and the way they lost to the Nuggets, Clippers and Nets has killed that confidence.

    As for the best 25 game stretch, the 90-91 team started the year 22-2, that's the closest of the good teams.

    Btw the 90-91 team also had a stretch where they went from 44-10 to 47-18 in an 11 game stretch (3-8). So obviously the team is trying to have their shitty stretch to START the season instead of at the tail end...right? RIGHT!?

    well, the year after Portland won the championship, the Blazers started the season 32-5. They stacked an 18-5 stretch on top of that to reach 50-10, Then, Walton got hurt while playing his last game as a Blazer. The season went to shit, and the Dynasty died

    So we need to retrace our steps back to that fateful day, when the big Red Head got hurt, and find out who pissed of what entity. You can't tell me there isn't a curse...

    I think at this point we could lose to the Dolphins. We need to get our heads out of our third point of contact and play like we mean it not just in stretches

    That would be great but I don't see it though you can't expect Dame to score 60 points every night. But that don't matter until they start playing defense and start keeping the other team off the boards and win the last 5 minutes of the game we continue be close without the win.

    It was fascinating watching Little play defense and actually hustling. I hope he never loses that tenacity (although I hope it gets refined a bit).

    honestly, the teams biggest issues are

    1: Defense
    2: smart rebounding
    3: defense and rebounding.

    They can win with their offense (as so so as it is), but their defense has been a bunch of wasted effort.

    That's not effort.

    You said they wasted effort, I said they showed no effort.

    Just a different way to agree with you.
