    Great win! I expected a win after 3rd quarter. Lakers are poor shooting team... I want more in this series... really want more!

    Wish we could keep Nurk and Hassan beyond this season. Their games can overlap but they can bring different things to the flow of any game.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Awesome win. There's just nothing better in basketball than beating the Lakers. Beating this much-hyped edition in the first round would be the next best thing to a title--better than reaching the WCF last year even if they lose in the second round.

    They played their hearts out and worked really hard but honestly the Blazers could have hit more shots. Same thing can be said for the Lakers but we all know if the Blazers were hitting the open three this game would have been over.

    Oh yeah!

    Lillard's 34 points leads red-hot Blazers to upset of top seed Lakers in Game 1

    Still gotta get three more wins. This series is long from over. Stotts won game one but lets see how the adjustments pan out.
