I'm surprised the Blazers haven't signed Patrick Patterson or someone similar. I'd rather see that than Blevins..

Good thing someone bought my tickets to tonight's game....

Makes one wonder how long before the league just calls a timeout with much of the league entering the protocols.
They could stop testing the asymptomatic players but with the Blazer games playing in front of half empty crowds
anyway, seems nuts to have the fans in attendance anyway.

I found some seats I really like for $30 each and I couldn't resist, even with all the guys out. Time to watch Norm cook!

Olshey: This is the deepest Blazers roster ever.

Entering the game, C. McGriff.

The box score is ugly, although Nassir Little looks like he's had himself a very good game. That's encouraging.

Well not sure I got my $30 worth but it was still kind of fun. Little really looked strong, some nice hustle plays, 3pt shot looked smooth. Dame just looks a little hobbled. not sure if it is that abdominal injury or his ankle or what, but he just doesn't quite have the explosion to make the great plays he usually does. Norm was broke all game.

It feels like the ship be sinkin'

This has usually been one of the more active boards on this site, along with Toronto and a handful of others, so seeing the lack of activity for the game threads is jarring.

I'm really hoping the league calls a time out for all these replacement players makes these games so meaningless
for I'm a half season ticket holder and have no interest in going to any of these games and will likely not renew
my tickets for next year. Team should have been broken up 3 years ago with Neal Olshey fired.

They should just postpone the season it's getting ridiculous.

I’m glad we gave him an opportunity, kid looks like he will be a starter in the nba or at least a serviceable 6th/7th man.

This team stinks. But in good news currently are set to pick 7th, which gives us a 32% chance of picking top-4 and a 7.5% chance of getting #1.

I like those odds, especially with this being a 4 player draft IMO (Jabari Smith, Chet Holmgren, Jaden Ivey, Kendall Brown - I am not a Paolo fan).

I am still really big on Chet. Exactly the type of defender this team needs. KP with a better motor and attitude, + better handles and biometrics as he is 7 not 7'3.

Chet is in a whole different universe as a prospect in comparison to Zach. He is straight up special.

For the love of god, please don’t draft 195 lb Holmgren. Take a two way wing, the lottery is ;loaded with them. I was extremely vocal about not drafting Collins and I was right, now you want to draft him again. Some of you never learn do you? White American big men are trash, you have to go euro.
