Game Thread GAME# 68: BLAZERS @ PELICANS - MARCH 15, 2019 - FRIDAY, 5:00 PM, NBCSNW

Discussion in 'Portland Trail Blazers' started by Darkwebs, Mar 12, 2019.

?

What's your opinion on those Logo 3's that Lillard shoots?

Poll closed Tuesday at 10:59 PM.
  1. Lillard needs to shoot more of those - the stats say they are beneficial to the team.

    1.9%
  2. I trust Lillard and I'm fine with him shooting those at his discretion.

    52.8%
  3. If Dame is in the zone/on fire, let it fly! Otherwise, tone them down.

    30.2%
  4. I hope he limits those to only rare ocassions (end-of-the-clock, when Blazers are up big, etc.)

    13.2%
  5. Stop shooting those, period! I hate it!

    1.9%

    Another 2 days of rest on the road before playing the lottery-bound Pelicans, who have lost 4 straight games and whose franchise player is trying to fly the coop.

    I expect this to be a win, but there are no easy wins in the NBA. If we truly want to move up in the standings, we can't lose this one.

    Hopefully, the one that says to Dame, "I wanna play with you guys next year."

    They've been playing him 7 minutes in quarters 1-3 for 21 total minutes and then sit him in the 4th.

    I’ll take being swept by NO last year but having a better record them this year while they miss the playoffs. NO won the battle. We have had the last laugh.

    I want the sweep.
    Who is going to be our hero Friday night? I say Jake goes for 25+, 10 rebounds

    Have to get this one. SAS will be on a 7 game win streak with a ridiculously good home record when we play em.

    What situation would you prefer?

    A) We sweep NO last year. Lose in second round. Miss playoffs this year.

    B) We get swept last year. We make the playoffs this year.

    I take B.

    So we're let off the hook for getting swept because their GM sucked and got fired?

    They were already bad when GM got fired. Again- which situation would you rather be in?

    I'm saying the GM made horrible decisions prior to him getting fired.

    Of course I'd rather be in the playoffs this year and have Dame wanting to stay versus Davis who wants out.

    Yeah. GM wasn't all bad though. He refused to trade Davis for garbage. That right there was a good move. I still think Davis may sign the supermax with New Orleans. He said he wanted out because he wanted to go to Lakers. I know he said the other 28 teams are also on his list but I don't buy that.

    Kuzma, Ball, Ingram, Rondo, Stephenson, Beasley AND 2 first round picks? I'm not sure I would call that "garbage". I don't think they will get a better offer than that.
