    there was a reason I posted total minutes as well as average. Dame has 180 more minutes than Donovan Mitchell and he 6 years older. 140 more minutes than Devin Booker and again, 6 years older. 240 more minutes than Trae Young and he's 8 years older. 300 more minutes than Jayson Tatum and he's 8 years older. 360 more minutes than Bradley Beal and he's 4 years older. 360 more minutes than Brandon Ingram and he's 7 years older. 400 more minutes than Jrue Holiday and he's the same age. 530 more minutes than Kemba Walker and he's the same age. 560 more minutes than Ja Morant and he's 9 years older

    yeah, some of those guys have missed games, but still they are not pounding and grinding as much as Dame and almost all are younger

    again, I'm not saying fatigue was the cause of Dame's injury, but I have seen him look worn down over the last 4 or 5 games. All you have to do is go to google and search: can fatigue cause injuries in athletes?

    the link between fatigue and injuries is pretty certain

    I don't think Warriors, Kings, Suns and Timberwolves are "in the hunt".

    Grizzlies 45%
    Pelicans 25%
    Blazers 20%
    Spurs 10%
    Field 0%

    That's how I'd rate it.

    You have literally posted pretty much daily for the last month it seems, that Ja Morant is the best player you have ever seen? Now all the sudden you have never paid attention?

    I don't think i can remember ever seeing a Dame/CJ fast break like the one we witnessed in this game? It was kind of weird to see it?

    Not looking like the Blazers are "In the Hunt" either.

    It didn't fail. There just isn't any better options.

    C'mon man you can't be serious. You actually posted that much "Hype" from highlight film takes? I can make 1M even Mario and Swanigan look like all stars with highlight film.
    Now as far as "Passing us by" goes. Do you honestly think the Blazers lose last night with a three man front of Hassan, Collins and Nurkic? You do realize they would not have punished the Blazers in the paint at all if those players were available. Then you add Little and Hood and guess what? The Blazers not only decimate that team in the paint and on defense but they pick the Griz apart with sharp shooting because certain players could lighten the minutes load and stay fresh.
    The Griz have a very nice start of a good team. They will improve for sure. They will be very fun to watch. But they are a very long ways from passing up a healthy Blazer team.

    Why are people so upset about this game?
    This season already went in the toilet in December.

    The only thing i'm actually interested about right now is the release of Stotts and his ugly-ass offense and weird defense.

    I can't believe no one else was bothered by this.

    Whiteside got owned by Valanciunas all game and chose that moment to act all tough?

    Where was that toughness trying to keep him off the boards?

    Have you ever read anything remotely worthwhile from this guy? I certainly haven't and my advice is take anything he posts with a grain of salt and a double shot of Tequila Margarita

    It was just some trash talk, he's another bigman with weird personality. There's nothing to talk about.

    I wonder how much the non-goaltend call vs. Utah might have deflated us. We were playing well, playing with energy. We've always had the deficiencies on defense, on the bench, on the defensive boards, but we were overcoming it.

    Maybe those deficiencies just caught up with us, but this feels like 2012 when LA got Durant and the refs called it a goaltend and we lost in OT. We would have been 15-10 and ended up like 28-38 or something like that.

    Again, it was an imperfect team but still one that was capable. Just seemed to fall apart after that.

    Not to me...

    He's more concerned about flexing than finishing plays. There have been numerous examples of times he's blocked a shot and celebrated as the other team gets the ball and scores or when he has scored a bucket and as Whiteside is admiring himself his guy sprints down the floor for an easy two.

    No question taking that game would have put them in a better position.
