  2. Sure, why not.

    15.7%
  4. No, we need his scoring punch off the bench.

    47.1%

    Time to take care of home court. No question in my mind they can get a win in game 3.

    Looking forward to Saturday! I betting that Bogut doesn't start this time. Looney to start and Bogut will replace him from time to time or they'll put in McKinnie for Dray and Bell for Looney for breathers. Warriors are just as good on the road as home, but I think they'll just squeak by one win in Portland.

    RipCityDSCPL Could be worse, at least it's not Lonzo.

    The 'average' 'no stars' Clippers won two games in the Playoffs and pushed the Warriors to six games and that was with Durant!

    We have won ZERO games so far.

    Let that sink in.....

    I thought I hated Bell when he played for UofO, but that has been surpassed.

    Clippers had to have an epic 31-point comeback to make that happen. They also play a lot harder, and have a better coach.

    Doc is annoying, but he would be a damn good coach for this team. Probably one of the best in game adjustment coaches in the league.

    I just want a coach who looks at in game adjustments as part of his job description and not an afterthought.

    As much shit as I give Stotts I think he’s actually an above average coach. Great development guy for a rebuilding team.

    As a playoff coach though, he’s just so fucking stubborn it’s ridiculous.

    So Portland could have won game 2 which means they can't win Game 5?
    TBF, I'm confused.

    I've read this a number of times and at first i thought it was a valid point but then i was reading and i came across a comment that might have been his thinking?
    Stotts knew he had two starters that were Muslim. He also knew they could not eat or drink during Ramadan. Maybe he was hoping to face at least half a series against the Warriors while those two had a chance to eat and getting some kind of help from them?

    Probably a stretch? Maybe? Kanter and Aminu are basically useless in the second half from here on out.

    Sure they can. But first they need game 3.
    If they get game three then a bunch of weight will be lifted.

    I have doubts they'll make it to game 5, but if it's 3-1 I wouldn't bet money the Blazers win that game. If it's 2-2 who knows, I suppose there is a shot though.
