Hard to win back-to-back games against any team. That said, Portland has one of the toughest schedules in the second half of the season, so they need to pile up wins against the sub-.500 teams they face.

This is the 3rd game in a row I see Jones has lost minutes to Melo and Little. So, Stotts is looking for offense. Why not, if your best defense isn't stopping anyone.

These are the type of games where if we had better Defense we would win, or if we had back Nurkic or CJ we probably win.

C'mon now, they were playing a team that was 8-30 going into the game.

Easily the worst game of the season. Even worse than the Phoenix blow out. Townes does not have as good a game if the Blazers had a second center available. Edward's is pretty good. I kinda wondered why they continued to leave him wide open behind the line after he already made several 3 pointers.

RoCo did a better job on KAT than Kanter did. We did alright against KAT. We need CJ and Nurk back. We aren't good with 2 of our best 3 players out.

Even having Giles would have helped. What ever happened to Harry?
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Bummer. Those are the games that you look back at the end of the season and wish you had back when it comes to seeding.

If the Blazers can't complete a trade for Gordon, I'm warming up to Jones+Collins+Hood for Aldridge. Not sure how it would play out long-term, but the Blazers probably win last night if they had Aldridge. Still rather make the Gordon trade, though.

Calf injury. Listed as "day to day". But Giles' health concerns were the reason why the Blazers were able to sign him to a minimum contract, so I'm less optimistic about a quick return.

That BS review on the "restricted area" cost us the game. Lillard was no where near the restricted area and everyone knew that, and in real-time they thought he got to the spot in time, so why can they go over-turn that on a clearly false claim of being in the restricted area?

That was basically a free coaches challenge to a team that had already used theirs. Essentially Minnesota got 2 coaches challenge in the last couple minutes of the game.

To get enough players to contest for misses, which the previous game was ridiculous with the Wolves' offensive rebounds. SOmething has to give when you have but one 6'9 or bigger player.
