there’s efficient powell on 3-6 and good old cj shooting 6-16. grr norm is probably better than cj he just doesn’t take dumb iso shots

Drummond is OK but for those stats, he’s where he’s at now (a minimum vet) for several good reasons

CJ making me eat crow today, solid finish for him. But i do still hope powell takes more shots, seems like he’s capable but with the selfish play of some of the other teammates he doesn’t get the shots he probably should be taking

How come whenever a former Blazer plays us it's like "jejejejejeejejejej" and when our guys go against their former team it's like 'weeeeeoooup"

usually it’s a strong correlation to our super weak defense. It’s just a tradition for any opposing guard to light us up

I think he gets a significant offer on the fa market. I’d take drummond over any c on our roster even if he isn’t an all star

The CBA is anticompetitive. Players want competition, but NBA and owners want to prevent competition.

Meh, when he’s a significant part of a good team I’ll believe it. We’ll see

GTJ got 7 rebounds. How many times did he get 7 rebounds for us?

Trent doesn't have his big contract yet, but he has new higher status. For the first time, he is on an NBA team that is invested in him. Hood has played better, but Raptors are invested in GTJ. At the beginning of the season, Melo and Hood was ahead of GTJ in Blazers pecking order. Now GTJ has capital. He can have a couple bad games and he's still secure in his position. Hopefully, GTJ gets on track and doesn't lose his capital.

If y'all continue to disrespect Powell and play Melo more minutes, you're gonna have to hand him back to us.
But to be fair, Norm did get in foul trouble early. Stotts is smart enough to give Norm the minute he deserves.

CJ absolutely dominated offensively in the 4th, if he can keep this level of play up CJ+Lillard can be extremely formidable in the 4th.

Powell played 36 minutes in the last game, and I bet he would have had at least 30 minutes in this game if not for foul trouble.

Ball movement was nice and lots of guys were getting involved through 3 quarters. Then iso ball happened
