    Get at least 1 game in OKC. You have to win on the road to go very far.

    Questions we need answers to.
    Who would win in a game of horse.
    Westbrick or Meyers Leonard?
    Who is more emotional.
    Westbrick or Meyers Leonard.
    Could @KingSpeed beat Meyers Leonard 1v1?

    It's just one more game.
    It is not the most important
    It is not going to decide the series
    It would be nice to get this win.
    Getting a split while there would be really really good.
    Getting them both would be awesome
    Losing both would be holding serve.
    Listen to the way Lillard answered the last question to his press conference after game two.
    In Lillard we trust!

    All time, the Blazers have taken a 2-0 lead 14 times. They won all 14 series.

    Question....how do you know what jerseys the teams are wearing?

    When I saw it was a red out for game 2 I figured we'd be wearing our red jerseys. Was surprised we were wearing the white jerseys again for game 2.

    Edit: Championship teams have mentioned how winning the third game is easily the hardest game to win for them. So don't be surprised to lose this game.

    Man if we won this game it would be over. There is no way OKC would have the morale to stop us anymore. Westbrook would feel his pride totally destroyed and just go insane in game 4 and shoot his team out of the game.

    They'll probalby shot better, but even if they do, can't see them having more 3s than us. They will be nervous and that's our chance. Westbrook's basketball IQ is always plus for us. Dame have to be on same level, straight in his head.

    Going with "Road Red" jerseys.
    Anyone know the winning percentage this year with red on?

    Both teams are flying today morning it seems. Not sure why our team isn't going tomorrow and have another night in POR.

    Playoff travel is definitely different. It's only one flight there and one flight back. Earliest they come back is Sunday late or Monday morning.
    To me it makes sense to get there and start the routine. Be playoff ready.

    We have done this in the past as well. We have also left on east coast road trips right after the past 2 years' all-star breaks a day early. Coaches like getting into that "Road Mode" a day earlier. It's weird, but there are LESS distractions on the road. Guys can stay dialed in more. Team meals/meetings at the hotel. More structure. Easier for the coaches to keep an eye on the guys.
    And yes it is pretty normal for the team to fly back the day AFTER the game as well. Wanting everybody to get a good night sleep.
