New, comments

The Raptors and Blazers play at 7:00 pm on CSN NW, and we give a nod to the late George Michael. Hang out and chat.

NBA: Toronto Raptors at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers try to break their five-game losing streak tonight, playing the Toronto Raptors at Moda Center. Damian Lillard is out due to an ankle injury, but Evan Turner and Al-Farouq Aminu will play. Jared Sullinger and Delon Wright are out for Toronto.


Praying For Time — George Michael

These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around now
These are the days of the beggars and the choosers

This is the year of the hungry man
Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance
And legitimate excuses

The rich declare themselves poor
And most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we'll take our chances
Because God's stopped keeping score

I guess somewhere along the way
He must have let us all out to play
Turned his back and all God's children
Crept out the back door

And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
Well maybe we should all be praying for time

These are the days of the empty hand
Oh you hold on to what you can
And charity is a coat you wear twice a year

This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there is over here

So you scream from behind your door
Say "what's mine is mine and not yours"
I may have too much but I'll take my chances
Because God's stopped keeping score
And you cling to the things they sold you
Did you cover your eyes when they told you

That He can't come back
Because He has no children to come back for

It's hard to love
There's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of

And the wounded skies above
Say it's much too late
So maybe we should all be praying for time
