As long as George doesn't go 'one-legged crane' on us afterwards.
Whatever. They're catching an even bigger "BREAK" with Nurk being out.
Got my ticket again.
Behind the Blazer bench again but not as close. I'm in 122 in row R.
Wondering how a guy who wasn't there last game knows how loud the crowd was?
Something to be said for quickness and agility.
Cortisone shots take about 24-36 hours to take effect. Not sure he had one but on a rotator cuff injury they work pretty good for a while.
I really didn't see his fouls as being stupid. He was playing solid defense that was aggressive. He picked them up but he was playing good defense.
Let's not use the word 'break' OKC got a huge one.
Playoff Mo looked great on defense. It would be nice to get him some buckets at the rim, but Kanter takes up most of that space. Mo needs to hit a couple of threes tomorrow.
And on at least one Dame's arm was clearly held, no call.
And work for a couple of weeks.
One armed craned?
Yeah it takes the pain away for a short period, but the injury is still there. If he isn't careful it will get worse.
Of course they are. But as good as Nurkic is, no one is putting him in the same category as George. Also, our back up for Nurk is 10x better than whomever they have to spell PG13. Good for Portland.
0% of Nurk is a bigger loss than 50% of George. Sure, Kanter is doing an admirable job filling in for Nurk, but do you think that Leonard and/or Collins are doing as good of a job with the second unit than Kanter would if he was playing there?
Injuries are a part of the game. Portland's had more than their share this year and it would be cheap to play down a win over the Thunder because George isn't at full strength.
The story i read is that they are thinking that it's a small tear with little chance of getting worse. DISCLAIMER! - I am not a doctor. I don't know shit! I was a pitcher though and have a worn rotator cuff. Painful as all get out. Cortisone did help a bunch.
That made my day. A question was asked about Leonard or Collins comparing to....well almost anyone with a pulse would be bad for them. Of course NO ONE thinks that. Fun question though.
Yeah, they know he needs surgery after the season
I really wasn't sure? The story was a little sketchy? I posted it i think on the game thread yesterday?
Ya I don't know why @TBpup is making excuses for them. The fact that they have PG at all means something.
What it does it effect how he shoots it with that injury so his release point is not the same as if he was healthy. Plus it must be sore because I know Zach hitting good on that shoulder and fell couple times too.
