    Blazers are an underwhelming 4-9 on national TV this season. They just lost a game on TNT, so this game gives them chance for redemption. Please do not embarass yourself on TNT two times in a row.

    The Spurs are 6th in the West, and the Blazers are 4th, but San Antonio is nipping at the heels of Portland, as they are only a game behind in the standings. The Spurs have been playing well lately, going 7 of their last 10.

    This will be a back-to-back road game for the Spurs, so I don't want to hear any excuses for a Blazers loss tonight. Portland needs to come out strong and set the tone early, so basically do what they failed to do against the Heat.

    Seacrest out.

    What does this "Seacrest" mean? Deep State inquiry?

    We have no idea who will even be suiting up since that is the day of the trade deadline so could be very interesting.

    Spurs play tonight but Pop is resting Aldridge and Derozan, apparently so they'll be fresh against Portland. I guess that shows which game he thinks is more winnable

    Well, Duh. The Blazers will likely think the same - given that they play GS today.

    I hate when he pulls that shit. Even the other starters only played 20 minutes tonight.

    I got to admit. It works. Guys got 5 championships. Even if the commissioner has to occasionally tell him to get the players butts in games.

    And they take a 40 point loss that costs them one in the L column. In the big picture he lost nothing because they were not winning that game anyway.

    I am not saying I don't understand his strategy, nor am I saying it does not work. I am just saying I hate when he does it.......when it effects us.

    I want to see POP coach another 5 years and see how many championships he will win? Or see how many playoffs series he can win?

    Was agreeing with you. ESPN puts that game as it's lead for west coast and POP decides the starters don't need to play. It's wrong. The fans deserve a better product. I personally have always felt the product would be better with a 66 game schedule that never had a B2B and more quality games televised. Not only would players have to play but each game would mean more and they might not be dealing with as many nagging injuries. Let alone games like they had just a couple weeks ago when the Blazers played an OT game in Utah i think? Then had to get to OKC to play the second game. I wonder what the NBA thinks about a 40 point loss on a prime time showdown between two top teams that had half the roster sitting on the bench?
