Gameday Thread: Blazers vs. Spurs, Game 2

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Yes, there was a rattlesnake curled up and waiting in Thomas Robinson's locker tonight. There will be more about this story later. Portland Trail Blazers Head Coach Terry Stotts said, "They said it was a rattlesnake. It was maybe three or four feet. It was a young one. ... I'm not an expert. ... It's a Texas thing. It's bizarre to have a venomous snake in your locker room. I don't know if it's happened before. That sounds like an ABA story. We survived."

UPDATE: The Spurs state it was not a rattlesnake, which I'm sure makes two-hours-ago Thomas Robinson feel much better:

But we'll get through it together.
