Maybe Stotts should just go Sac game two seasons ago and start those who finished last night, giving them as many minutes as their foul disqualifications will allow. It may be a good way to show contempt for the ref biases.

I bet a small amount on cj going for 40-50 tonight with a laker fan. I have a good feeling I’ll win this wager though I certainly wasn’t gonna bet on Portland winning. That being said I wouldn’t be shocked if we upset as you never know with bench players as they tend to be hard to game plan for. Anfernee or Trent would have to explode but I’ve seen crazier things before. I’d say our odds are around 40 percent which is high given Lillard’s status but i think we actually are competitive tonight as the rest of the team will step up with their backs against the wall im thinking

What's the motivation behind watching this last game? Seeing Gabriel? Seeing what Trent can do with more shots?

Is there a wager surrounding the 40% prediction? I just might want in on that!!!

The players are boycotting today's games.

Interesting move by the players, I think I love it.

If Lillard isn't going to play in the game when it happens, I'd love to see big games from Gabriel and Trent.

If the refereeing is going to continue to skew the Lakers' way, I'd love to see the players REALLY lay down the wood. If it's going to be a foul, at least make it count. I'd love to see Nurkic knock LeBron and Davis on their backsides a couple of times.

I can't stand LA.

Many things are more important than basketball. Respect to the players.

NBA saying game is "postponed and will be rescheduled". Players saying they're having a meeting tonight to discuss their situation. Some speculating season is in jeopardy. Will the NBA players announce demands? Will the NFL players be paying close attention, and give this a huge ripple effect? Hockey? I do recall 45, months ago, really wanting to reboot professional sports. We love our sports as a distraction from real life, right?

The players are paid to play basketball, not boycott games.

Who does that sound like?

I've got mad respect for the players . If the NFL, NBA and MLB go out, perhaps the loss of thse distractions
from real life will force changes.

So if one Blazer refuses to boycott, why can't he play LA 1-0, we'd win 500 - 0.
