There are a lot of elbows being thrown up high by the Fakers, and the refs aren't calling isht. This game could lead to a real fist fight, if the refs don't control the dirty-ass fouls the Fakers know they are getting away with. Dame was talking to the ref at the break. Fakers playing dirty.

CJ missing a lot of shots he needs to hit. Hoping those start falling soon. That this is only an eight point game is somehow amazing.

We need to take advantage of them being in the penalty if possible.

Themes of the series so far seem to be the Laker defense vs the Blazer offense. Both are ranked 3rd in the league. So far, the Lakers have controlled Portland's offense fairly well, but the Laker's mediocre offense hasn't taken advantage of Portland's bad defense.

This suggests that the Lakers should be favored to win the series (which makes sense), but I'm not counting out Portland.

HUGE flop by LBJ on that one Gary barely touches him and he flies back like he got hit with a **** brick.

Refs will be giving us 0 benefit of the doubt in this **** game. Nurk called for just standing there as AD flies around him and falls down.

Man these refs are being absolutely trash right now. The Trent call was good, but man they aren't giving the Blazers anything

I was kind of sensing a Laker blowout in this game. Hope Portland can turn it around, but this is brutal.

Worst half of the bubble for Portland. They don't seem to have much mojo tonight.

I don't understand why they called a foul on Nurk when Davis just ran into his back. If that's an offensive foul, why don't we just send Simons in to run into Lebron James back?

Well tons of missed 3's by everyone not named Gary Trent is making it rough. Then on top of that our bigs can't seem to rebound for **** it seems like Lakers dominating on the offensive glass even when we have out 2 bigs and they just have AD out there.

Gary Trent 2-4 from 3 point land, the rest of the team a whopping 1-11. It's almost like a reverse of how badly LA looked in game 1 from 3 point land.

Yeah, that was a terrible call. Nurk now has 3 fouls as well.

Hoping for the 2nd half to be better. Need to hit their shots, make some more passes, feels like they're just isoing way too much. But that always happens so. Also, I understand that the Blazers have more FT, but man does it feel like the refs are giving the Lakers more benefit of the doubt. 2 BS fouls on Nurk that I saw, oh well part of the game. Just start hitting some shots and it'll even up

bubble Blazers have been replaced by February Blazers so far. That's a bad trade unless you're a laker fan

offense sucks donkey balls. 5 assists on 15 baskets. Too much one-on-one

CJ + Melo = 8 points on 16 shots...that's really bad

Blazers don't seem to know what they're doing on offense, they just take turns shooting low percentage shots.
