    Celtics choked, what a bunch of losers. Pacers gonna win. I have no idea what anything in-season tournament means, but Boston definitely stunk in crunchtime.

    So excited for the inaugural in season tournament champion. They will be remembered forever….or at least 5-10 minutes

    prediction: teams who perform well in the IST will fall on their faces in that year’s play-in and playoffs.

    Not an amazing prediction considering 19 fall on their faces in every postseason.

    Hate it all you want. Still a bigger accomplishment than anything the Blazers have done since 1992.

    Super exciting game in Indy. Huge win for the Pacers. Love the single elimination knock out rounds. Look at those fans and try to tell them it doesn't mean anything. They're more excited than anything I can remember in Portland outside of maybe Dames two series buzzer beaters.

    I don't really see the downside. Even if you not a huge fan isn't it way better than the 6 regular season games it replaces?

    If there's anything we should get rid of it's the all-star game. Just a bunch of super friends picking their buddies and not playing defense. Has nothing to do with competitive basketball.

    No it’s not. Are you telling me the Blazers haven’t won random games in a season that counts as a regular season win? Are you telling me since 1992 Portland hasn’t beat the Lakers, Suns, Jazz and Grizzlies all in a single season? Then three more other teams randomly?

    Equally if not bigger because it was a finals championship, not who won the 3rd game championship

    today is Hart vs. Lillard
    and Reddish vs. Nassir (and Nurk)
    - glad to see former Blazers having some success. Thanks for the inconsistent performances and lackadaisical defense offered in Portland. We really love the amazing talent delivered by the ping pong angels.

    For those of you who don't like this tournament... I just don't get it. Have you been watching these games yesterday and this one going on right now? They are different. This is a brilliant idea and although the courts are whack, everything else is being executed really well.

    the 3 ex-Blazers in the LAL/PHX matchup scored a combined 12 points in 75 minutes of action.

    borderline hopeless, I like the Blazers new direction.
