There isn't much else to talk about. The Blazers played their bench against the Warriors, and sacrificed this game in order to be rested for the playoffs. There's no need to discuss this game, as we learned little.
Instead, hang out here and discuss your thoughts on round 1 of the playoffs. How well do the Blazers match up against the Mavericks? What are you watching for?
The Warriors box score is here (don't bother), and Dave will have a (likely) very short recap later, then plenty of playoff coverage. -- Tim
