    Mid second quarter now and the Raptors have only made 5 shots in the GAME.

    Looks like the refs are trying to go to work for the Cavs. Paul George is getting clobbered.

    LeBron shoots FTs like Shaq now. So weird. Then he hits his 6th 3.

    DeRozen 0/6 from field. Why hasn't he taken more shots?

    100% chance Paul George is going to force a trade this summer

    I thought Zbo was coming off the bench for the Grizz? Starting him and Carter in 2017 smacks of desperation.

    Agreed. I hope he lands here, even if it means kissing @Natebishop3 's boots and eating crow.

    Bet he wants to come here. He's used to a small marrket and I'm sure he wants to downsize!

    They made their run in Game 2 with ZBo on the floor. It's a good coaching adjustment.

    I feel bad for Pacers. I hope that doesn't happen to us.

    Kingspeed should teach acting classes called "Selling A Foul." Get Pau Gasol some advanced lessons, Reggie Miller 301. None of that Stanislavski Crap.

    Hope what doesn't happen? One of our core players get tired of it here and want to leave?

    PG has been in Indiana for 7 seasons and he was happy there when they had Hibbert and were finding success. I think he's realized that those years were the prime of his Pacers career. Dame and CJ on the other hand hopefully realize that they have more to accomplish as Blazers. Regardless we don't have to worry about it for a few years, and winning will solve everything. The Nurk acquisition is a big step in the right direction, I'm sure the players will look back and reflect on that trade with a positive image of the management a product of their reflection.

    Not much of a "Grindhouse" with Tony Allen injured. They need to be getting Gasol more mid-range jumpers.

    I read that the Grizzlies players chipped in to pay his fine as well.

    I don't think Zbo leaves Memphis, but I'd love him to return to Portland.
    If only because Aldridge would see ghosts whenever he plays the Blazers.

    Ha, didn't know Zbo could still dunk. Thought he lost that ability 10 years ago.
