What a game so far. Complete domination. This looks like the Pre bubble Lakers.

Think it's going to be a really chippy second half with a lot of free throws... Must not get sucked into that game, but we're not a bunch of rookies so it shouldn't be a problem.

When we hit shots, we're unbeatable.

Every other facet of our game is deadly. Transition, defence, etc. On D when we lock in, this team is a bunch of pterodactyls.

I'd like to see Dion get JR's minutes. His shot just isn't going in and the evidence has been clear. And we need someone other than LeBron who can dribble the ball and initiate.

Dame and Cj know they can win the game in the 4th with how they shoot 3s... So I'm not counting them out yet... Way too early.


You would think they would play a little bit more inspired defense but they literally can’t. Caruso is getting to the rack, Green has no one within 10 feet of him on threes, Melo isn’t contesting a single jump shot. There body language suggests they’re defeated.

Has Dame scored a bucket against him other than free throws in this series? I would love to see those numbers when Caruso is the primary defender. He's the perfect guy for Caruso to go against as far as elite players are concerned. Because Dame doesn't have elite athleticism, which is what can beat him.

Danny Green just beat Dame Lillard off the dribble. Portland's had enough.

People who compared Dame to Steph need to be shot. Steph could use his handle to get in the lane and finish better. Steph can actually rebound a basketball. And if he was getting locked on like that, he could give Dray or in this case CJ the ball and come off screens to change the way the floor is balanced and hit off catch and shoots.

I hope they're able to sit Bron and AD in the 4th.

To be fair the kick it back to Dwight. Then the post and repost to a kick out play sum Kuzma up. He’s playing much smarter. He’s playing the intangibles game that Lonzo and BI didn’t do
