Bit hard to tell if he's saying Dame made for it or shy away from it.
Westbrook shot an airball and turned it over in less than a minute to cost Houston the game and maybe the series. He’s terrible.
...it will if he can't figure out how to shoot free throws at a decent clip when it matters most, hack-a-freak coming soon!!
OKC has to be enjoying the Westbrick turnover show.
Wow! Talk about choking under pressure.
Man Westbrick ran KD off, PG & Melo, and now is killing Harden...how do people not realize HE IS THE PROBLEM. Got to give him some credit tho, he’s finally helping the Thunder make it past the first round since KD left..
Brick? That was an airball.
I take that as he was talking about Dame putting Westbrook and PG away last season and then the way Westbrook played the end of this game with Paul also hitting two clutch threes in this game. Nobody has ever said Damian Lillard "Shyed" away from any clutch 4th quarter.
2,465 posts on your 10th or so account, and you finally came up with an entertaining comment! Well done.
Watching OKC (whom I picked as the team I would like to see take it all; mostly cuz I liked the story of how they survived and then prospered after losing George and Westbrook); I can't help but wonder what would have happened if we had traded for Chris Paul just after OKC got him. It was speculated at that time that a team could get him for expiring contracts (and maybe even get a draft pick back for taking his contract). We had those contracts at the time. It would have been a big gamble for us, but how would we have looked in the guard centric NBA with Lillard, CJ, Paul and Trent? Would we have benefited from having a guy who could help tutor defense and ball movement? Would we have benefited from having a guy who would hold teammates accountable?
Such a joy watching the Raptors/Celtics..I wish we played defense that way
Toronto Boston and Miami are such a joy to watch. Pure team basketball without a top 10 player. I guess you can argue Tatum is close, but really they win off great teamwork.
Really wish we played like them.
This is a great game
DAMN, that was filthy by Kemba.
Not to be a butt-head, but how can fans watch a game like this and then argue coaching is irrelevant? Celtics and Raptors both reflect their coach.
Watching the defensive rotations on shooters is beautiful. Regardless of who is on the floor, the Blazers are confused what to do after the second pass.
Well, this isn't good.
Who in their right mind would argue that coaching is irrelevant in the first place?
Boston vs Toronto is great oldschool basketball. No crazy high scoring games, but fantastic defense and two well coached disciplined teams. If the Blazers could only play half as good of defense like those two
