    Honestly, not one bad game on the slate, especially since PHX is playing lights out. The Lakers-Pacers game might be the most snooze game today, and even it's still decent.

    tbh all the other teams have to do is tank and let the grizzlies in just cause they dont want to let this hot team in the playoffs. You could actually have boston, toronto and milwakee go in on this lol.

    Would honestly rather see Portland against LeBron and AD, as opposed to a JJJ-less Grizzlies team. Morant is good, but he ain't that good.

    Seriously, Rivers took out PG-13 with 5 minutes left in the game.

    I hope Doc called this timeout to remind the bench to lose the game.

    With every timeout, Rivers keeps removing a rotation player. Clippers have been playing the 4th with their 8-12 players, lol.

    Blazers losing to a bench mob with the playoffs on the line.

    I know its fun to believe they'd have a shot against the Lakers but maybe they win one game.

    And a full-strength POR team with a rejuvenated Melo is on the brink of losing this game.

    Kinda makes you wonder.

    Portland has a better chance than Memphis. The way Lakers are playing and shooting the 3 they are vulnerable to everybody..

    I think the Lakers are just bored. Everything is locked up for them so these are scrimmage games for them. I think they wipe the floor with Portland.

    I just always feel the Blazers have been very overrated. They are a dangerous team to be sure but I think out of all the low seeds OKC is the most dangerous team.

    Against Portland, with the Lakers' lack of backcourt (in both starters and depth), Lillard and McCollum are going to feast. I think Nurkic and Collins can survive against the Lakers' frontcourt strength, so if there's some semblance of defending LeBron, I think the Lakers are going to have a hard time against Portland.

    Lakers D is solid. Lakers offense during the season was #1 in transition and like middle of the pack in the half court. It's not going to be a Warriors-like table run.
