    It all depends on the Blazers. I assume they will snap back into form and handle the Pels but they might lose a couple of games.

    This might be the best series in the first round. Blazers are tough, especially at home, but don't discount that New Orleans will have the best player on the court every game...that means a lot in the playoffs.

    I think this goes 7 and Portland wins at home to finish it off.

    As a Blazer fan, I'm pretty much right there with you. This will be no easy win. Jrue Holliday seems to give us problems as well. Regardless of outcome, it is going to be a hard fought series.

    AD will dominate nurkic, but nurkic will hold his own more so than rondo will against Dame. Dame is going to feast this series. NOP just don’t have enough talent, but I give AD 2 games. Portland in 6

    I think the Blazers are the most dangerous team in the West outside of our own team and the Warriors. Don't think they will have too much trouble with the Pels, the Pels, by far, have overacheived more than any other team in the West with that trash lineup they have surrounding Davis.

    Pelicans won't be able to stop Portland from scoring. Portland in 5.

    Jrue Holiday looked pretty good in that first quarter.

    Would it be safe to assume that NO would've easily secured the third seed with a healthy Cousins this year?

    Dame picked a bad time to shoot blanks.

    36 points at the half. Jeebus.
    CJ and Dame combined 1-15 for 3pts.
