looks like 6th in the lottery is the best Portland can do. They won't 'catch' Orlando
a couple of ill-timed wins can certainly push Portland to 8th or 9th in the lottery
Yep and we play Utah, NOP, and OKC. In bubble, we were 3.5 games behind 8th with 8 games to play and we pulled it off.
I believe that's where we finished last year, then we moved back one at the lottery.
Don't believe it benefitted Dame Time and unless we luck out and get a top 3 pick not sure it will again this year?
I'm guessing we package the pick and some to acquire a proven front line player as Dame Time time requires some immediate talent help.
Maybe we could trade the Blazers pick for a proven player like Josh Hart.
Or we sign him as a fa.
Orlando (5th lottery spot) won today over the Clippers, so they move to 2.5 games below the Blazers.
I dunno. Lillard or not, the style of play we have been playing, we don’t stand a chance against too many teams. The way the Rockets have been playing they’d route us.
I still believe this to be true. D’oh
I can definitely understand the hype for Miller. He will be an ideal SF in the NBA
Really seems like a Paul George clone. Would 100% draft him.
The team Dame scored 71 on?
do not win any more games this season Blazers.
Since Blazers and Magic play, the Blazers are one Magic win from controlling their destiny for the 5/6th pick. Two Magic wins from having it outright.
Time to go full on tank!
two Orlando wins while Portland goes win-less in two games still doesn't put the two teams in a tie since Portland is 3 games ahead/behind in the loss column
and for lottery tiebreakers, head-2-head doesn't matter. Identical records are settled by a coin flip
Orlando looks to have the harder remaining schedule, and I am doubting that the Blazers will shut Dame down. I'm pretty skeptical that the Blazers can climb to 5th in the lottery; they may have trouble holding on to 6th
So we can have a Paul George clone and a Tracy McGrady clone?
We could be only 1.5 games behind Orlando in the tank if/when we lose to the Clippers and if the Magic can beat the Lakers.
So are the Blazers once you get past Dame.
almost certain dame hurt his wrist today. keep an eye on that
Dame needs to play in 2 more games for all nba teams ... a little load management needed until then for Ant ... Jerami. Nurkic can play well and remind others he can still play. Then full tank-o-rama with Dame.
