GLB of the game- To be determined. Unfortunately I must work while the game is on so I am looking for a volunteer to handle the hard chore of picking a GLB and posting pics throughout the game. The only rules for a GLB 1) No porn stars 2) Must be at least 18 years of age 3) Must be a public figure. So who is up for the challenge?

Nic Batum revenge game. 30 percent shooting while filling up the stat sheet.

Batum vs Aminu should be fun

Batum has shown that he can crank his game up when he wants (part of what made him frustrating) and I expect it will be cranked to 11 today.

The old time Blazer members appreciated Nic's talent when he chose to show it. Many of his
contributions did not show up on the stat sheet for if we had kept him this season, his ability
to handle the ball would have freed Dame and CJ to get more open looks.

One thing that likely will be distracting Nic will be the happenings in his native France which
makes me wonder if his mind will totally on this game.

Today's Good Luck Dude is Benedict Cumberbatch, who my friend somehow finds attractive:

And today's Good Luck Babe, since BC is not here, is Keira Knightley. Keira costarred with Benedict in The Imitation Game (great movie, btw):

Dame off to a great start. Soooooo good seeing that floater. If he really has it downpat, that opens up his game tremendously.

They should try this thing called tanking.

Maybe they've already started? :O

When a team is down by 23, refs shouldn't be inventing fouls against the team that is losing. That basket should have counted by Vonleh!

It's interesting seeing Batum so aggressive and into a game. And for him to have 20 1st half points. I haven't seen Nic score within that type of rate since Lillard's rookie year.

What a half by Charlotte. Will we be seeing Connaughton, Montero, and Cliff in the second half?

Edit: Whoops - I missed the part of the game when Alexander was in! Glad he got some minutes.
