Should the Blazers move Seth into the starting line-up?

Poll closed May 23, 2019.
  1. Absolutley. We need more shooters in the starting line-up.

    5.9%
  2. Sure, why not.

    11.8%
  3. No, but he should get at least 30 minutes a night

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

    47.1%
  5. No, he makes our starting unit too small.

    15.7%
  6. Heck no! He's not consistently good enough

    Listening to Zach Lowe on the Lowe Post right now. He thinks we've defended pretty well this series the Warriors are just too good.

    So, Toronto was involved in a huge trade and a coaching change, the Bucks made a coaching change, and you don't believe any of that had an impact?

    Sure, it helped, but seeing as how Lebron won the East the previous 8 years, I think that was more significant. Hard to argue otherwise.

    The Warriors were lucky to win both of their two home games.

    The Blazers will play for pride and will win their first home game.

    If the Blazers lose the second home game, I will concede that Golden State is just better.

    If the Blazers win both, which I expect them to, then it's back to a 3 game series: Advantage Warriors.

    I'm sure the networks would love it if we can get it to 2-2.

    :cheers:

    Please start Zach Collins at PF and bring Aminu off the bench.

    Luck had nothing to do with it. The Warriors play hard in the dimmest moments. Just when people think that "we got them", they go on runs and take back the lead. It's been that way for 5 years now in playoff and championship games with the exception of their 2nd Finals run against Cleveland. All the others had a defining moment where they bury a late 3 to seal a game or some great defensive play.

    People said we couldn’t win game 7 in Denver. Anything is possible.

    Don’t meltdown. Including preseason, reg season, and playoffs, Blazers are 40-10 at home. There’s lots of basketball to play.

    And if you think of it this way, 3 of the next 5 are in Portland, things don't look so bad?

    In 2000 WCFs, we came back from 1-3 to force game 7 and then almost pulled it off. It’s not over.
