They aren’t as good without Brogdon. Still don’t understand why they let him leave, or why we didn’t go after Brogdon for that matter.

Vuc is basically a shorter Boban with a jumper.

I love the guy, but his inability to play any defense would be a recipe for the same treatment by Rick as Boban gets.

Orlando just has a lot of defensive guys who can make up for Vuj. Mavs have none.

He's a heck of a good offensive piece and probably a better piece than KP, but his defensive liabilities are obvious.

I know it’s a long shot Giannis comes here next year. I actually think Miami or GSW has been laying the groundwork for longer than we know now. Maybe I’m just being paranoid. But in some ways Mil, who isn’t as good as last season(I don’t care what their record or stats say otherwise)Crashing and burning is the best scenario if we are to have a shot at Freak. On the other hand, I loathe Lakers, Rockets, Clippers. I suppose Toronto has a chance, wish they had one more scorer. Maybe Celts had a shot pre injury to Hayward. What to root for? Milwaukee to take out most hated? Or Presumably better Mavs chances?

Man they just call BS fouls on anyone standing next to Lillard.
don't get me wrong i'd love to see them take down the Lakers but it's effin stupid to call fouls and that he's in the act of shooting 3's when he just leans into the guy standing next to him.

He basically doesnít clear the pick and just elevates the second he gets the ball because he knows the defender is going to fight through the pick thus creating contact.

yes you're right but even the "contact" is not much - no grab, no hands
he's smart to do that if they're going to call it which more often than not they do
as with many whistle blows i think the refs anticipate and/or just see Dame contort his body a bit to make it seem like he got hammered.
all he needs to do now is do the fake DWade fall to the floor and then limp a bit to the FT line.

this type of advantage snowballs as we know because then knowing you can't touch him you can't really defend up against him for fear of getting whistled. then that leaves him 3 feet of space to launch and of course he's a good shooter.

of course i see Luka doing something similar to draw contact - i do feel that the majority of the time he's doing it though he gets his man up in the air at least.

Fultz still has no clue what is going on on the court. I'm glad he turned out to be something serviceable, but what a disappointment.

Sefant said way back that he wanted to be in Indy, which seems strange. I wondered if they were worried about his medicals but maybe he had no interest in signing here? Maybe MBT misread the market and were caught flat-footed? Lots of possibilities.

I do think the age of the offensiveless big man is over. Watching Noel and Adams on offense is truly painful.

I am 1000% cheering for OKC to take out the Rockets.

Rockets completely unable to defend guards and when they go cold, they can't beat anyone.

What's amazing is that OKC was completely out of energy...esp Shroeder. The fact that the Rockets just collapsed says a lot.

The only reason I would prefer Houston to win the series is I just think they would have a better chance to knock off the Lakers assuming they advance. I don't see OKC knocking off the Lakers. Then again the Lakers could sweep Houston, you just never know what you are going to get with Houston but I just don't think OKC has the talent to compete with Lebron and AD.

Maybe I shouldn't be thinking ahead so much, but if somehow we could beat the Clippers I would love to face Utah and then in the WCF NOT the Lakers. We would have a legit chance to go to the Finals.

2-3 Blazers have made reacted at the refs for what they feel is missed calls. No T’s yet. No different than what PG and KP did.

How is Jared Dudley still on a team? I’ve seen guys at the rec center in better shape than him.

I legit thought they had a chance to give the Lakers a run for the money. Losing Zach Collins hurt because they have to play Whiteside and Nurkic together which kills spacing. They could use Ariza now too to have another guy to throw at Lebron. Doubt Houston or OKC can stop the Lakers, so they should coast to the WCF.

Lillard out for game 5 with a sore knee. Surprised he isn’t even trying to get treatment and see if he can make it for a game time decision. Wonder if he reconsiders wanting to stay in Portland long term.

I'm just super sad that we didn't get the hungry Suns.

Instead we got an absolutely pathetic Portland team.

Lakers are just laughing at Portland.

Murray is playing out of his mind. Hitting every long shot he takes.
