    I envy this building. It just gets you so jacked up if you're the home team.

    I'm going to vomit after I write this, but Donkey's bbq IQ is off the charts. He consistently makes winning plays.

    The only reason Blazers are in this game:

    18-38 from 3 point.

    38 attempts!

    Mid range game lol.

    If they were shooting from midrange against the Warriors, this game would have been over long time ago.

    CJ playing like crap in the second half is a big reason for this loss.

    But the threat of them being willing to pull up is what's causing all these defenders to go out and guard, which opens up all these passes over the top for layups. If you only have to guard the 3rd and the rim, then there's no need to show on defense, meaning none of those layups are available.

    You have to give it to the Warriors...their role players show up right when they need them to.

    I was referring to the easy Warriors layups. The end of the game was littered with them as the result of those drives.

    Portland deserve that loss for not having the play drawn up for Seth who was hot.

    That's it. Gotta cheer for the Brick Freak and the Bucks now. Either that or the Worriers 3-peating.

    Tough back breaking loss for Portland. All that's left is a sweep or a gentleman's sweep. I am afraid GSW ripped the heart out of Portland with this come from behind win.

    More intelligent than any Rockets player. Seriously the dude just makes the right plays all the time on both sides of the ball. Box outs, rebounds, assists, blocks, switches...I hate his guts as an opponent but he’s ridiculous.

    so portland made adjustment to their bigs to not sag and more traps. now they also need to add theyll have to play smaller more.

    their defense suffers so bad with either kanter, collins, or leonard in the game
