    Another game with the opponent missing key players? Doesn’t that seem to happen a lot to us?

    Jokic or not, according to my math, this should be our first game when team plays on all cylinders. I expect blowout and tweets about how scary team Blazers is. And we will be even better after trade.

    Right wrist sprain. Something tells me Jokic will play Tuesday. The Suns blew them out without him.
    If he doesn't play maybe Nurk will have a huge effect on the game?

    Murry out
    Porter out
    Jokic questionable

    ....if we can't get this one against Denver, we might not beat them for a while.
