    He’s clearly suffers from Lillacism, the act of thinking you’re superior to Damian but are really a sniveling bitch.

    I was talking about his shot not his overall game.

    I wouldn't necessarily disagree with that.

    But there wasn't a choice of sitting Zach and getting Ariza. If we sat Zach we'd have more Hezonja. Thank gosh for Zach.

    Another example of why +- is basically worthless.

    c'mon now...don't you know that if Dame isn't averaging 45 points, he's letting the team down?

    if Dame was a better player he could be averaging 29 & 8 while posting a .618 TS%. Too bad he couldn't average 49 & 10 over a 6 game stretch leading Portland to a 5-1 record which would have secured an invite to the bubble. Instead, Portland is missing out and staying home like Minny and Atlanta....all because Dame isn't good enough to lead Portland to wins

    It was ugly offensively, but Portland has done a nice job coming up with a gameplan against Harden.

    Harden currently has a spare tire fit for a truck drive across Texas.

    On defense, Trent is as energetic as Aminu. But his shot is no gimmick.

    Nurkic is one-arming himself out of stardom.

    And a dozen errors which could be avoided by holding the ball with two hands.

    Nurk is so good even when he doesn’t play that well he puts up a stat line like that.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Man, I remember when people thought Westbrook was a good player. Glad we're done with all that.

    Because he leaves it all on the floor. That being said, Hassan's effort was much better tonight, and he provided some key production.

    Does it make you mad when a guy goes up for a left hand layup and jumps off his left foot or doesn't make a solid jump stop before passing?

    True. A very mobile 280-pounder is rare.

    He gets mad when he has a sober thought.
