    When Portland scores 100, we get free McNuggets.

    So when Denver scores 100, do Denver fans get free McBlazers?

    The last game was so odd with both of the superstars being so off with their shots. Denver in general just couldn't throw a beach ball in the ocean. We have to expect that to change but maybe we really woke something up with Norm and can continue to see that pay dividends while also getting our normal output from Dame. The fact is we can expect to see a completely different Denver team in game 5 and that doesn't mean a loss necessarily but it does mean a more competitive game.

    As to the poll, I have watched most of every game except the Wiz game that’s on right now.

    They showed him sprinting up and down the sideline and hitting shots in shoot around. They're just being cautious by keeping him out and they should be because if he pulls the hammy again and if they beat us, they're playing the same back court players we've been seeing the rest of the playoffs and those guys aren't really world beaters.

    Denver will view this like Portland viewed Game 4. They don't want to return to Portland down. Blazers can't afford to think they can afford a game. We know Denver can win in our building. Put them down and keep them down.

    It's now a 3 game series. The key moving forward will be Nurkic staying out of foul trouble IMO.

    Yep. Both Nurk and NP. They are guarding Denver's 2 best offensive players. So it might be difficult to stay out of foul trouble but if they can
    then the Blazers will be in good shape.

    I don't see Will Barton being the player that is going to make a huge difference? If the Blazers play defense and don't turn the ball over they can get game 5.

    Also- You will not see Damian Lillard cold two games in a row.

    I wouldn’t say that, we have seen Dame going ice cold for like 1½ months this year and he has had some cold stretches, i hope he get's hot again. But it’s not out of reach that Dame will continue slumping

    The only team I won't watch is the Lakers. I haven't watched LeBron play since he left the Heat.

    I would also guess that Barton won't be enough to tip the balance. He can't be 100 percent yet, can he?
