    Assuming Powell misses some time, who starts? Hopefully Nas.

    I didn't even know Jack was with Phoenix, but I saw his tutelage in action when one of the Suns players stepped out of bounds on a drive.

    Me neither. But, I mean, as a player. Did he ever figure that out?

    He wasn't bad at all, overall.

    I just remember that if a team really wanted to shut us down they'd just pass the ball to Jack and let him try for a fast break.

    Turnover every time.

    Like, it seemed like if guys got stuck, they'd just try to turn it over to Jack.

    Just got done watching highlights the offense really look good. Defense did a good job majority of the time stop that mid range game of Phoenix. Still have some trouble with closing out on the corners and when rotating under the basket sometimes we end little small of protecting the rim. But very active and a great improvement. Solid win by the Blazers.

    I love how this game put a blanket on Stotts fans here. I hope you can prepare to sleep now.
    Little's high5ing the fan alone is a wind of change. Looks like we not gonna play 3 men rotation this year and I hope Billups is building proper team chemistry.
    That was fun!

    “ I’ll Zelle you your lucky ass winnings. But next time we go out I expect you to cook a masterpiece to pair with wines
    That would make a sommelier cream himself. Fuck! Fuck!”
