    I’m sorry to break this to you, but those two plays aren’t what caused Portland to lose this series.

    Portland had a 93-79 lead. After that they were outscored 47-22...and 28-14 in the 4th Q

    what a surprise...the team that lives and plays half their games at elevation was less affected by a double OT game at elevation

    Oh I know 100% which is why I'm happy he won't get it. Dame can win a championship without stotts easy while still being in portland. Im excited for that.

    Oh, this is no doubt not a smart team, but someone has to be able to impress upon the players after winning Game 1 not to phone in Game 2, that we can put the Nuggets effectively away before we play a game in Portland.

    That this series got to Game 6 was a travesty. That the Blazers lost in six would make the Blazers a national sports talk laughingstock if we were in just about any other media market.

    There were many more bad decisions than those two plays this game and yes they cost us this game.

    last game Nurk got sloppy with fouls in the 3rd, we fouled jump shooters and yes that cost us that game. 4-2 us with those two games.

    you said you saw no way Portland was going to lose this game so it's pretty fucking obvious your vision isn't that good

    This is stupid. I'm not going to argue with you anymore over what's the bigger insult. He's incompetent either way. Good night.

    You guys are massively overating Nurkic. I wont be sad if he's not on the team next year.

    Black Monday's the day after the Super Bowl. That's when the coaches all get fired.

    If you could only have 1 this off season, what would you choose?
    - Fire Stotts
    - Trade CJ (for anything)
    - Fire Olshey
