    Just saying. The bench is playing well but only gets a 5 minute stint. He can’t do this the entire season.

    Big mistake letting McGee get 3 fouls, he was killing it.

    We could've beat everyone (except the Kings) by 20 if we had made a coaching change earlier!

    Do my eyes deceive me or are the Blazers playing defense?

    I just screamed out “That’s fucking defense”. And didn’t only scare the neighbors but the kids as well

    Nurk is thus far a better 3pt shooter than Dame this season
