    Ah, the classic tale of the unstoppable force versus the immovable object.
    The road team is winless on the road; the home team is winless at home.
    Who accidentally stumbles into a win first?

    Blazers have had 2 heart-breaking losses in a row. If they get a third, will they win the jackpot?

    Let's find out.

    They should seriously think about starting Mario.

    This is a must win game. We need to get back on the W table. The Next one is vs atlanta - Blazers can win both!

    Watching Hassan play has really made me appreciate how nimble Nurkic is for a guy his size and especially weight.

    @TorturedBlazerFan, how can Little be your favorite bench player to watch when he isn't playing?

    Not good. When Portland plays a team looking for a "first win" it usually doesn't turn out well

    Not really as worried as some others seem to be. I wouldn’t have taken away anything from that warriors game had they won, so idk why I should take anything away from it after a loss. Every other game has been competitive. Team is banged up and has a bunch of new faces, so I can’t say any of this is surprising. I thought any win against a good team would be a bonus right now, and that was before Collins got hurt.

    My impressions so far

    - Dame has been Dame while CJ hogs the ball and is a liability defensively. Nothing new there.

    - Simons is a legit scorer and shooter and an upgrade over Curry. I don’t know what CJ does that Simons can’t.

    - Hezonja has impressed defensively. Guarded Kawhi about as well as you can last night. Wish Stotts would give him more freedom offensively. If he misses a couple shots early, don’t give up on him.

    - Bazemore is better than Turner but idk how by how much. His shot selection...woof. Defensively he’s super aggressive but I wouldn’t say he’s much better than Turner on that end either.

    - Whiteside plays when he wants to. Good thing we only have to deal with it for one season.

    - Once Gasol gets healthy I expect to see him with the closing unit over Whiteside

    - I think Little should get a look. We could use his energy, physicality, and rebounding.

    But really we just need to stay afloat until Nurk gets back. Seeding doesn’t really even matter honestly because no team really scares me as long as we have Nurk. Olshey will also probably make a major trade at some point before the deadline, so it’s kinda premature to be evaluating how the team stacks up against everyone else.

    So that's why they don't communicate on defense, can't hear each other !

    Not sure Nurk just automatically returns to where he was last year. These guys usually take a while to come back to elite level even after being fully healthy.

    Hayward had a different, more serious injury along with ligament damage. Most guys you’re talking about, guy that take a year, are guys with ligament injuries. Nurk had a clean break. Once that bone is healed, it’s healed. There will be rust but I’m not expecting any lasting complications.
