    The Games are just too expensive to keep getting to them. I went to a couple in the first round but the prices jumped another couple hundred between the two series. The other problem is i actually pay for Comcast so i am hamstrung as it is. Funny part is at this point no more of the games are even on Comcast.

    Tonight will be another pivotal game 3. Obviously the Blazers need to get this one if they want to have a chance at making this a series. I think they have a really good chance at it. They can play with this team and i am sure they will be ready for everything GS will be bringing. The 3 days off will come in handy as the next 4 games are all on a one day turnaround should the Blazers push the series to 6 games. Getting both of these home games could in fact get them in a position to push these guys to 6 or 7 games. That would be quite an accomplishment. If the Blazers win this one there is little doubt in my mind you will see Curry in game 4. Correct me if i am wrong here but the last i heard Curry is still out for this game but it is anybodies guess for game 4? I am sure things start to get dicey for the Warriors if they lose a couple games in this series.
    My thoughts on Curry coming back? I know he is the MVP and he does have an impact but this is still a team game and he is just one man. I am much more impressed by the Warriors as a whole. At this point the Blazers need to win 4 of the next 5 games against what might be the best team that has ever played in the NBA record wise. Just winning the next 2 would put them alone in being the only team to beat Golden State 3 times in the entire season and the only time the Warriors would have lost 2 times in a row all season. This task is daunting to say the least.
    It all starts with one game and that game is TONIGHT!
    Go Blazers!
    Kjironman is a fan!!!

    Game day!!

    No team has beaten the GSW twice this year. We beat them by 30 earlier in the year. They're an amazing team, but I think we can get 'em again. We're due for a good game!

    Hark needs to play tight on Klay and we need to watch out for Ezeli, he's gonna get more minutes tonight, maybe even take Varajaos

    If Hark breathes on Klay wrong he gets a foul, that much is already known.

    Let's go, Blazers! Warriors are in for a rude awakening when they find out their "roaracle" is nothing but a cub's whimper compared to the playoff time roars at the Rose Garden.

    I love downtown! So much fun! Make sure you go to Mermaids, loose slots, fast strong free drinks, and deep friend twinkies. Which hotel are you staying in?

    Well, we know where Sly's head is at. The first three things he mentions are the slots, the booze, and the bell-hops. :devilwink:

    An "expert" on ESPN radio, didn't catch his name, was saying that the Blazers should start Crabbe instead of Mo because Mo's lack of outside shooting allows the Warriors to play off of him. He said starting Crabbe would open things up more for Lillard and CJ.

    I thought it was an interesting point.
