As noted in the online reaction below, Grantland's Zach Lowe laments his missed chance at confronting notorious mascot attacker, Robin Lopez.
Gonna be pissed if Blazers-Nets is off. Had planned to confront @rolopez42 on his chronic mascot abuse. He must be publicly shamed.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) January 26, 2015
Based on Portland's schedule, they will likely have to make a cross-country trip to play the Nets later in the season.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) January 26, 201
