    I hope we start Trent against the rockets. No way collins can stay on Covington who will just sit out there and cast threes, like the rest of their team.

    As always, get Westbrook to take this game as a personal showdown between Dame and himself, and we're golden.

    I think Stotts will start with the starters to see how it goes but we will see a lot small ball with Trent at the 3.

    Your inability to give Boston any credit for the win is puzzling.
    But, so is most of the opinions and reactions in here.
    Rip City....

    I think Blazers will win this one; Houston will not be up for this game, especially after their game against Bucks.

    Damn, I didn't realize Dame is up to 8 assists per game. This dude keeps getting better.

    well, Portland came into the bubble in 9th (by .001 percentage point) 8 games under .500 with 6 of 8 games against teams with better records. So yeah, they are fucked, but most of the fucking was prior to the 4th Q of the Boston game

    i voted for Stotts, but it was a combination of Stotts, Dame and Nurkic.

    Nurkic' lazy one-armed ball handling, shooting, and passing lost us many possessions. But he isn't on the list, so I didn't vote.

    How will portland stop the threes? Terrible defense overall and even worse on long balls. If houston is hitting them, then lights out. Harden could go for 50.

    Watching the Bucks defend the Rockets was Bizarre.

    People love to call Terry stubborn...Bud was on a different level.

    Our perimeter creation will help vs all of Houston's switching.

    Going to come down to defending without fouling imo. Haven't been able to do it through 2 games though (fouls are way up for all teams btw).
