Update: The Blazers lost badly to the Atlanta Hawks after a lackluster performance. The Hawks were hot from the field, and Portland never seemed to have a run in them. No Blazer played particularly well (though partially due to terrible shooting), and their defense fell off. For lack of a better answer, they looked tired. The Blazers play tomorrow evening in a consolation game, and then 2014 Summer League is over for them.
Blazers Summer League Coach David Vanterpool was clearly unhappy about the team's performance. Expect to hear more in Ben's Media Row Report later tonight.
David Vanterpool said he didn't see a "respect for the game" from Blazers in loss, used the word "arrogance" in describing approach— Ben Golliver (@BenGolliver) July 18, 2014
Tip-off: 3:30 pm

UPDATE: Thomas Robinson suffered a torn ligament in his right thumb, and is finished with Summer League.

Here's Dave's Summer League Primer.
Here's all the roster and schedule information if you need to catch up.
Ben will be writing a Media Row Report from Las Vegas later tonight.
A couple rules to cover:
1. No pictures please. If it's a picture on Twitter, just link to it.
2. Please don't come into this thread purely to discuss any variation of "this is just Summer League". Everyone is aware of that. Thanks.
Hang out and enjoy the last Blazer basketball games for 3 months! -- Tim
