    Hard to believe this game is so close with Dort and Williams shooting 6-28
    SGA is on fire right now

    it's getting quiet in Dallas, the Thunder cut it to 2. Mavs fans are so loaded they're seeing about 14 OKC players on the court

    You cringe when Hardaway has the ball.

    Kidd waited way too long to call time out.

    The biggest problem I see with Dallas is they are so careless with the ball. They force too many bad passes.

    Edit: and horrible FT shooing

    Funny how big an ovation Lively got for sinking a free throw

    Perhaps SGA isn’t as clutch as we thought?

    Chet's not a rookie. It's not fair. Scoot should be top 5.

    I will say... the variety of shoe colors in this game is excellent. Love Chet's lavender kicks.

    I haven't seen Henderson's Pumas in a store yet, but the last edition on TV was Gummy Worm neon. Gotta get a pair

    He is but can I remind everyone that when it was rumored that Neil Olshey was interested in bringing him to Portland we wanted nothing to do with him.

    El Cubano did not look too amused by the loss to OKC.

    what do you mean by "we"?

    I liked Gordon as a Blazer target for quite a while. When I suggested a CJ for Gordon swap there was a lot of push-back by those saying CJ was a much better player. It was a PPG and homer argument but I was making an impact and fit argument

    as usual, in a situation like this, Olshey operated from the discount dumpster. Denver traded Gary Haris, RJ Hampton and a 1st for Gordon. 4 months later Olshey traded Derrick Jones and a 1st for Nance. Blazers were willing to buy a heavily used Ford Focus, and they got ripped off. Denver was willing to pay for a lightly used Lexus, and they got a massive bargain. What's more is that the first is their 2025 first, top-5 protected; the obligation extends thru 2026 and 2027. But we know with about 99.7% certainty that Denver will have paid the 1st by 2025, ending their obligation. Portland will likely still be obligated for the Nance trade 3 years after that
