    Nurk with 14 boards and 0 turnovers in 18 minutes. He needs to pick it up LOL

    Except for Zeller (-5), all the bench guys had plus. Nice to see.

    That was an exciting win. After the first quarter I was thinking, “here we go again” and was expecting another letdown. Good to see them fight back and take control in the second half. Great energy from out bench guys and the guards shot well.

    Billups made the right decision leaving this unit and if it hurt some egos so be it Billups there to give the team best chance to win.

    I don't think Nurk got benched tonight, the Raptors just weren't playing guys that he could match up with... so Billups adapted. Now RoCo on the other hand doesn't have the same excuse.

    Zeller is another guy that low key should see fewer minutes. Nance is better against most second unit centers. A lot of teams don’t even have a real backup center.

    The + we beat a team with our same record in a close game.
    The - I still see a lot of the same problems with this team and good teams will make us pay.

    Lillard blew by Barnes and then the two of them started jawing. After that Lillard and McCollum took a few bad shots and opened the door a crack for a Toronto comeback. Not sure what spurred that. Took a few trips to get it out of their system.

    Larry Nance has room for improvement but he's already looking like a big positive for the team.

    Nassir Little travelled every time he tried to dribble. I can't believe he was only called for it once. But his shooting was very good.

    Nurk blasted one or two screens tonight. Bone rattling.

    Smart by Billups playing Nance at center to finish the game. The last thing we needed was Nurk trying to defend the 3 pt line against their small ball lineup

    Especially when you've got the other team
    Nurk was great? Great compared to what?

    good win for Portland and finally a nice balance of RoCo and Nance

    I tell you what though, if the Blazers had made all the bonehead plays the raptors made in the last 2 minutes this place would have gone nuclear. I don't know how young the Raptors are, but that was some head-shaking shit

    and gary did wear #9 for us his rookie yr.

    that said, who decided this jersey combo for these teams tonight? absolutely no contrast.

    we had a similar game at ATL last yr. surprised we didn't have more turnovers
