Key to the game: Gary Trent Jr. grows 4" and puts on 40lbs of muscle.

I'm guessing we win because the NBA needs this series to go longer than 5 games. AD gets called for a couple of cheap fouls in the first and Lebron has to carry the load without him.
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

I wish the Blazers pregame would have half the squad with blocking shields and have the other half crash into them at full speed. Good prep for playing the Lakers and a "subtle" message to the refs.

... or like in football, those sleds with pads that the lineman smash into? Maybe get a few for the Blazers' practice court.

Taking the night away after the last couple. Can’t stand watching us gassed out with bad coaching and even worse refs. Praying for the best, but I’m burned out :lol:

It's always kind of odd to see Rebecca Haarlow doing the TNT interviews. She's like big time pro sports reporter now. I still have all this unreleased Haarlow/LaMarcus fanfiction which now has no market.

Basically a must win here, if we pull this one off puts more pressure back on the Lakers to pick up the 5th game and get their lead in the series back.

HOPEFULLY the refs will call a fair game, I was pretty **** disgusted with the last game.

Rest up, but you must watch any game that has potential elimination, if for nothing else to hold the hands of other Blazers fans.

I've got a good feeling about tonight's game though. I think we'll even the series.

Thank you B-C. Good choice, after all, she's a super hero and we need one.

Just want to ask, what happened to the game plan we used in the first game? Can we just go back to that beautiful player rotation we had in game 1 please? If we do, and our shooters heat up, who knows what could happen. To me, the Fakers aren't THAT good of a team. Bron and Brow, then what?

Lastly, I hope to see Dame look more like Steve Nash tonight, and less like James Harden.

Let's even this thing up... RIP CITY BABY!!!

Over and back and offensive charge on the first 2 plays and neither called and results in 5 points for the Lakers.

Yikes. 10 - 0. I've probably jinxed us with my earlier optimism.

What's with all of the Blazers virtual fans wearing Kobe/Lakers gear?

4 quick points is exactly what we needed.

Am not a big fan of the big lineup.
