yes sir. i meet him in oakland in 2018; He's the reason i started like basketball;
The same people (mainly BonesJones and Hoopsjock) refuse to give Stotts credit when he deserves, but shit on him every time. Stotts also did a very good job against Memphis, when Nurkic fouled out and he brought Trent instead of Whiteside, that was crucial for the win
Very cool. Dont call me sir though!
What were you doing over here? Don't tell me you went to a GSW game.... that might negate your fandom you know.
Should be interesting. There will be a lot of size out there.
Hey guys. Long time, no talk.
going to be a hard fought game tonight if we want the W. The Nuggets probably scare me more any other western team right now. We just dont match up with them very well & Michael Porter just came off back to back 30pt/15REB games. Bol Bol has come on as of recently too. The Blazers need this one pretty desperately & I hope they play like it tonight. We need the bench production from Gary Trent & company.
Got to beat the big boys to win a chip....Denver is a test we need to check off the list...Go Good Guys!
Started to see some life and energy from Whiteside last game. They will need that in this game as well. IMO he is a huge key to this team playing well and advancing.
Put some respect on my name. I’m a Blazer fan.
Just kidding. I’m a big fan tho. I’ve been in Portland before
Must win, they have more injurys than us, and we have the best player on the court. No excuses
A win today would have is in a strong position for sure.
The defense against Houston
Is it just me, or do the Blazers always seem to play opponents without their best players?
I refuse to complain or second guess it lmao. Let’s just get out of here with a W. As others mentioned, this would put us in a strong position to grab 8th seed with 4 games left.
This is huge. If Murray doesn’t play, we definitely have a solid shot. They will not be able to size us up like they did in the regular season. Collins & Nurkic are back. No more easy buckets for Jokic.
Problem is less Murray means more MPJr.
I knew Stotts was a good coach!
Lets just keep it as he has done some good things and he did well against the Rockets and Memphis. I personally think he is a good coach also sure but he has to keep doing things on both offense and defense utilizing the players he has available right now. That breakdown talked about "Diamond" defense but we also watched a Trap and double teams mixed in with some switching at times that also kept them off balance.
I would like to see them respond better to teams fronting Whiteside. He has the lob available a bunch of times and they are not taking advantage of it yet.
