    It gets harder before it gets easier. We're going to be playing a bunch of borderline playoff teams fighting for their very lives. They will be giving 110% against us. I'll be happy if we can come out of the next six games 3-3.

    The last four games should be easy, with the only tough opponent being Miami once, and they might rest their starters.

    Quote of the night: Luis Scola just knows how to send Blazers fans home.

    right after Luis got the offensive rebound and shot the ball after Goran's miss in the last final seconds.

    Great win by the Rockets.
    As long as they keep playing team basketball, who needs a superstar?

    Bud with another solid game and much needed spark off the bench. Wouldn't mind keeping him around for shooting, how much is he worth?

    Also, back-to-back w/ Denver will be tough, Gallo is back, and Faried is beasting. We need a Kenneth Faried energy type on our bench.

    I only had the chance to watch the last four minutes, their play in that stretch inspired my post. ;)

    Blazers aren't tanking. They've actually improved their play since the trade deadline. They are competitive, but in the end bad.

    We're one of the hottest teams in the NBA and streaking, gotta keep winning. We handled the Jazz last time, we are improved and have size now with Camby & Dally so we need to take care of business.

    Hard to argue that when they traded Wallace and Camby. I honestly don't believe a competitive team would trade Camby for essentially a 2nd round pick.

    They're giving Thabeet and Flynn actual rotation minutes. That is the decisionmaking of a team which wants to lose, bottom line.

    They had a cancerous locker room. Those two were named as being part of the problem as were Felton and Crawford but no takers for the last two. They didn't want the chance of Wallace picking up his option. Neither were wanted for next season.

    uh-huh, tanking sounds more credible. isn't it custom to start stories with "once upon a time"?

    Once upon a time in a faraway franchise call Jailbaiters, the inmates became cancerous ...
