Kamen, Moses Brown, Pau Gasol, I don't care. Get someone with height and bulk on the court. 15-0 on second chance points. It would be nice if the refs didn't allow opponents to grab Kanter's hands on rebounds and putbacks.

New Orleans have some nice pieces. I'm surprised they don't have a better record. Their perimeter D is good as always.

Great to see CJ back. Hopefully he can get into a rhythm and Portland can come back.

Portland only has one player taller than 6'9 until Nurk gets back. Playing small going into the playoffs will
just get them beat in the first round

The defense is just an abject disaster.

The defense tonight might be the worst I've seen. This is preseason levels of bad.

Could we just fire Stotts please there is no **** way this team is this bad defensively. It's pretty much time for him to go, he either has no **** clue how to fix this team, or the team doesn't listen to him anymore.

In either case Stotts is basically done at this point, the Blazers strategy of trying to shoot better than every team and letting them do almost anything they want on the offensive end doesn't work.

Epic game! I almost turned the TV off but when Lillard hit a 3 I thought...eh, maybe they'll get hot.

Thank the refs for not swallowing their whistle in the end on that obvious foul.

Williamson almost had that shot at the end....reminded me of that last second barkley shot back in the 90s.

Unbelievable comeback! I thought it would come up short after Dame missed those late 3s, but the basketball gods were on Portland's side!

Wow, perhaps the most unlikely win of the year given how things looked, we'll take it

In honor of this win I will be berating Stotts in every thread where the team is down 10+ entering the final few minutes of the game.
