Be less of a duchebag
Nice 3 piece suit
He doesn't sound very confident
You think he's being a douche just for that statement? You're being more of a douche by calling him a douche.
Sometimes Dame is too even keeled for me.
No I think you were being one for yours
Douches, douches--it's OK, you're both douchey.
I don't think it's over either. But we need Nurk. We just have no inside presence right now.
They definitely looked like the youngest team in the NBA last night. Rattled.
You're going to destroy your rotator cuff throwing in the towel that vehemently...
"a series doesn't start until a team loses a game at home."
I'm not sure what people were expecting going into this.
Exactly. I was fully expecting to be down 2-0 at this point, especially without Nurkic playing. I was surprised at how competitive the Blazers were in Game 1, but that was because Dame and CJ were both shooting lights out. Game 2, in retrospect at least, was fully predictable. The Warriors, being an experienced and very deep team came out motivated to play well because Durant wasn't playing. The Blazers, being a young and inexperienced team, came out less focused than they had in Game 1; probably because they just couldn't help relaxing a bit with Durant sitting out. They started out okay, but panicked when their shots stopped falling and never got into the game at all. Sure, the Warriors played good D, but mostly it was missed shots by the Blazers that was the problem. We've seen the Blazers get blown out on the road by the likes of New Orleans and Charlotte this year in similar situations. I don't think that says diddly about how they'll play at home in Game 3. Without Nurkic, I expected the team to lose in 4 or 5. If Nurkic had been available the full series, I'd say the Blazers would probably have won a couple of games. I hope he can play on Saturday just so we can get a better idea of where the team is on the development curve.
We are down 2 games. It's within the realm of possibility our Blazers can win the next 2 games at home and turn this into a dogfight type of series!
How big is this "realm" and where is it?
