    Everybody knows that, but the people with the power to actually do something about it don't care.

    Your right due to there both ball dominant type of guards. One play better defense then the other but not by much.

    were Chuck and Cliffy ever teammates in Phoenix, or had Barkley left the Suns by that time?

    This half I want to see if Whiteside wants to play. Half the time he looks like he is in a daze or just don't want to be out there.

    HALF the time?

    He has been engaged like 10% of the time this season. We don't need the second half of his last game as a Blazer to determine this. He better be gone.

    I really want to bring Melo back. In whatever capacity. He might shoot us out of games, but his defense hasn't been THAT bad and he's not scared of the moment. And I think he's really mentored Trent a lot off the court this year. Give him a token starter role and let him play 25 mpg.

    It's just a damn shame he didn't come here before going to OKC/HOU.

    The refs had a let-down game as soon as they saw Dame was out.

    Blazers w/o Dame are pushing the ball more which I think gives the Lakers problem.

    Wait if this is on Whiteside it’s good because it’s his 5th.

    I'm glad CJ, Melo, and Nurk showed up for this. Shows a lot of pride and heart.

    Looks like Stotts wasted the challenge. Hopefully, we don't need it later because we'll be up by a bunch

    Whiteside looks like he wants to go home.
