Yuck. Utah is getting some nice breaks and executing well. Ant is killing us in this game so far.

I literally LOL :lol: when GP2 grabbed Ant and yanked him into guarding position with about 30 seconds left in the 1st.

Yeah, you don't often see that! :lol:

Great to see Portland catch fire in the second quarter.

But then again, they also did against the Lakers... :uhoh:

Dame cooking. :) I want Ant to start cooking too --- Portland needs him to kick into another gear to get back into playoff contention.

This felt like an important win. Hope Nurkic and Hart aren't out long. Nice contributions from Grant, Nas, GPII, and Eubanks. Ant stepped up big in the 4th quarter as well.

Dame in elite company with the number of 50 & 60 point games he's had

GEE needs to show up to point out how this 60 point game means Dame is bad teammate and a selfish person

Couldn’t believe Ant didn’t give Dame the ball back so he could get a new career high lmao

I’m shocked Dame has more 60 point games than Harden and only 2 behind Kobe. I would not be surprised to see him get to 70 before he’s done.

Last 2 wins were much needed, although Nurkic and Hart keep blowing my Parlays… Hope they’re not out long.

It was just another "average" performance.

Dame is such an insanely skilled player, I just can't fathom anyone considering Drexler a better player. A potential Bill Walton that never got injured could have dominated the league for a period of time where he would be known as the best Blazer all time, but no way am I considering Drexler better.

Little also with the very nice night, he is looking very good since coming back from injury. Going out there not trying to do to much and pitching in. Little also having extra value this year with how bad the bench can look from game to game.

Little has talent, but I doubt I'm the only one anticipating his next injury
