    I will take an easy win over Portland! Despite of Melo's 30 point explosion.

    Won against one of the most potent offenses, in Dallas.

    Won against one of the best defenses, in Milwaukee.

    There's nothing this team can't do. JUST. WIN.

    I know there's no reason really to hate on Lillard but man for some reason I just can't stand the guy. Maybe cuz the trash talking with Westbrook idk.

    At least we always know what our gameplan is going to be. They have some big centers (Nurk and Whiteside). We're going to draw them away from the rim and into the corner with our shooters. Russ is going to attack in transition. Harden will take stepback threes. Rinse and repeat and hopefully we win.

    Portland will be hungry to win this one. They're heading towards a do or die position so we'll have to play our butts off. Another great test. Go Rox!!!

    Dame is a fine player, very loyal to his team like James, bit of a baby...

    Ain't gonna be no more layups! Not as long as I'm around. [LOL]

    So going to Houston, it seemed like you guys are starting to get a little rivalry going. Chris Paul goes and scores a layup. They had the game won. You have some words with him. So my thing is this: I get it, but how much ownership should be on the losing team to play defense until the buzzer ends?

    DL: ...And so, I mean, going back to Houston, if that woulda happened -- like, if he woulda just been playing the game out, then whatever. But it was two people back. Me and [Shabazz Napier] sprinted back. So it wouldn't be like we just stopping.

    C.J. was chasing him down the court. He sprinted to go get the layup. So it was like, he's been in the league a long time. So I was just like, "Man, what type of play is that? What's that about?" And he was like, "Y'all ain't playing defense." So I was like, "All right." And I tried to hit the ball outta his hand. And I didn't like it. It was that simple. I didn't like it.

    CM: We've been on both sides. 'Cause when I was a younger player, I didn't care. I don't care if you don't like it. If I want to dunk it, I'm gonna dunk it. 'Cause it's a game and that's just how I'm built, how I'm wired. But as you get older, I mean, it's some things you should do, some things you shouldn't do. But I think just put it like this. Ain't gonna be no more layups. Not if I'm around.

    DL: We're gonna play to zeroes on the clock. I mean a strong contest at the rim.

    CM: I'm just gonna play till zero. It's on both ends.

    He's in that select category of players who can do-no-wrong, media loves them no matter what (no matter how little success he has)...
    (Hi Chris Haynes...Chris is Dame's/CJ's/Blazers' go-to reporter...)

    Like he cries about being disrespected, not making the all-star teams or all-NBA teams a few years back and the media rewards him the next year...

    _______________________________

    Obviously .9 (is anyone really still upset or mad about that? Feels like only Blazers twitter/reddit still replays that 4-5-6 years later because they've had little to no success so they cling to that)

    Waving bye to the Thunder (Ha, kinda funny...obviously Russ wasn't even on the Rockets so I don't care, not upset)

    Portland scares me. They got some really good shooters and two big centers. And you know Melo will be fired up for this one. Could be a blowout loss for us.

    Portland has more to lose in this game than us. They are going to pull out every dirty trick in the book.
