Nic and wes to play 1-1 tomorrow

11

Nic and Wes plan to play a game of 1 on 1 tomorrow! Dame says he'll be there

Barton over Wright

1

Wright is +8 and having a great shooting night, Barton's shot is off and he is -14...what is Stotts doing?

Hey Olshey - Maybe you can arrange a trade?

Maybe we can improve our bench this way? I'm sure Patty Mills could talk to his Bloomer homies and help you find the talent.

Grantland breaks down Patrick Beverley's ability to annoy on the court

3

Apparently what we saw against Damian was completely normal for Patrick and basically a part of his game. I did not know the extent of it, although Grantland will catch you up if, like me, you missed some of the saga. Best quote: " Dwight Howard in the post is miserable to watch, ditto for Harden flopping his way to 10 free throws a game, and Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons are both kinda overrated … but Patrick Beverley? He’s so perfectly obnoxious and unbearable that even a Rockets hater like me can’t help but respect him" - Andrew Sharp, Grantland

Quick Stirring Up More Drama

3

I get that journalism is his job, but I feel like Quick focuses too much on individual players. Seems like he just creates more distractions for them. Wish he wasn't back on the Blazers feed.

Aldridge Taking Too Difficult of Shots

4

As the season has gone on, LaMarcus Aldridge has found himself taking more difficult shots. The Blazers must find a way to limit his ISO's in the post.

Lin may have been given over 6 seconds to inbound the ball to Harden on the play where he hit the game-tying 3

5

Was Jeremy Lin given over 6 seconds to inbound the ball to Harden before he scored the game-tying 3? If so, that would be a turnover giving Blazers possession with a 3 point lead and 11.3 seconds left on the clock. I understand that there were other missed calls and such during the game, but this one is pretty obvious, easy to measure, and directly affected the outcome. What do you think?

Quick gets it right.

JQ saying things I have been thinking for awhile now. It's frustrating to see a team that is so capable of playing more consistently ... just not.

Cav's Targeting LeBron, Aldridge, and Love

10

We have known the strong interest that the Cavaliers have shown towards bringing LeBron back to Cleveland, and pairing him up with either Aldridge or Love, but it seems they have regained some of that motivation that might have been lost earlier in the year during failed trade discussions with the Blazers. What are their chances of pulling through? Seeing as how Aldridge has been happier about the situation here with the Blazers, doesn't seem likely he will leave, but then again, he hasn't signed a contract extension, so it's all up in the air at this point.
