Even Barkley called him out on that the other night.


He has a stress reaction in his ankle. You go ahead and play highspeed basketball at 240 pounds with a stress reaction in your ankle.


Now it's a fracture?

The media might be more forgiving if it was say a 4-5 point loss and Lillard played pretty well.


Dame deserves some criticism for this. Careless turnovers, very few good looks created for teammates, and the team has been flat footed all night. One of the worst games of the year for him.


I'm not saying he doesn't but like I said he plays his best when media members come after him or when he feels he has been slighted, It's irrelevant if it's deserved or not.

Hopefully dame is ok. Looked like he might’ve broken something the way he got off. He’s usually not one to shy away when he has a little pain

I'll take winning 3 more close games and accept losing by 30 in the other games.

Yikes. Offense was terrible this game, it was also had for Lakers in first half, but we're still struggling. I can't imagine this will be the status quo though.

BC - keep em coming. It's the only good thing about this game. Throw something in for TSE, as well.

Hezonja is only good as some salary in a trade. I still think he looks like Forrest Gump with the way he runs

He doesn't seem to be an NBA player at all he belongs in the G-League or in China or something.

He really makes me miss Harkless

I'm thinking Zoe Saldana for Saturday's game and Scarlett Johansen for Monday. Sound good?

This was the worst shooting I think we saw from the Blazers all night. And so many of them were good looks. I expect a much more competitive game on Saturday unless Dame's finger is no good.

Is it that surprising when the matchup at forward is between 2 all pro forwards v Gabriel and Anthony, with no adequate backups (except for a three guard lineup)? The only hope is good shooting from all spots throughout the game.

I just watched Weird Science again for the first time in...I don’t know, 35 years?

I nominate Kelly LeBrock at some point. She is UNBELIEVABLE in that movie...
