    I like some of the things i watched today. They obviously made a run. Showed the fire. Liked the look with Nurk out top making good decisions with the ball.

    I never said anything about effort or playing harder, I said Portland had more to play for. But you can move the goalposts if you'd like.

    If anything, me saying we have more to play for would be a knock on Stotts, which I believe is what you are looking for

    I also never said we did not have talent. I said Boston has more talent. I don't think that's a hot-take nationally.

    Well the Kings sure don’t appear to want a playoff spot...

    My 1 - 10 excitement level went from about 3 to 1 and back to 3 and then it went up to 8 then came right back down to 4 where it was yesterday.

    Dame was. CJ needs to do a better job of that. Melo too.

    I would like to see them run a few more plays for Trent JR especially when he was shooting like he was tonight. Seems like they forgot about him towards the end.

    In the end, the blazers were called for only 4 more fouls than boston, but had 18 fewer FT attempts.

    Man I’m happy either way. We make the playoffs great (even though I think Lebron and AD will make us look silly) and if we don’t make the playoffs we have late lottery pick to play with in a trade or use. So I’m just enjoying watching the development of Gary Trent and watching Nurk look better than ever

    That's cool, you could put a little more respect on Dame's name though... I mean he is the best Blazer of all time.

    I don't think there is a worse stat for a single game than +/-

    Through 2 games: Blazers 50 FTAs; opposition 84 FTAs.

    Either the Blazers are playing some really lazy defense - or the playing field isn't exactly level. :dunno:

    There could be a motion to try and make the games relevant. If half the teams are out by the 3 and 4th game then certain fans lose interest.

    That is a conspiracy theory.... I Know.

    He needs to see the court during this 8 game stretch. Even if it's 5-10 mins a game. When the Playoffs start he might be important.

    There's no such thing as a good or bad stat. There's just good or bad USES of a stat.
