    Blazers need to serve a cold dish of revenge to the Mavs, who beat them less than a week ago.

    And when did the Blazers become media darlings?
    2 straight TNT games, and 4 out of the last 5 have been on national TV.
    Looking ahead, 5 of the next 6 game (and 6 out of the next 8) will be on national TV.

    The Mavs have a better record on the road than at home, so this will be quite the challenge for the Blazers.

    I doubt Dame can get 60 again, so some other guys on the team must step up if we're going to nab a victory here.

    It'll be interesting to see how the new guys mesh with our current squad.

    Well we were in the WCF just 8 months ago. I can't stand these games anymore.

    If Stotts is to be believed, Swanigan will play. On the other hand, it shouldn’t take long to realize how bad he still is, so hopefully the experiment doesn’t last too long.

    When your backup center options are Carmelo and Brown, it’s not a high bar to clear.

    Brown has played a total of 23 mins this season and has been a net -36 in those minutes. He's not an NBA player now.

    And I thought it couldn't get worse than Tolliver at center

    A makes B irrelevant. Yeah, he probably isn’t an NBA player, but neither is Biggie. And the team has more invested in Brown, so if one of them has to get minutes, it should be him.

    i was going to post that last night when he went -12 in 2 minutes. i've been saying this from the start: dude is awful. people on here defended him, too, which i dont understand. he literally has no idea what is going on or what to do. i would take biggie over him any day.

    The difference between Moses and Biggie is all of Moses’ flaws are correctable. Biggies aren’t. Led feet are here to stay bruv. Moses wasn’t meant to get minutes this season. He’s always been a project.

    When they signed Carmelo Anthony. As I said in another thread, TNT literally showed one or more replays of every play the guy made. Melo is box office, bro.

    do we need another project? after having project Leonar_ on the team the past 7 years, i dont think we do.

    edit: everything in the NBA is correctable. at least biggie had flashes of being pretty decent. moses has had flashes of still being in a middle school game.
