Damian Lillard, Officiating, and the 2021 NBA Playoffs

Dave and Dia go bullish on Portland’s chances against Denver and discuss much more!

NBA: Denver Nuggets at Portland Trail Blazers Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers are well-positioned to beat the Denver Nuggets in their upcoming 2021 NBA Playoffs battle! So says Dia Miller of the Dave and Dia podcast. You can hear her wax poetic about Portland’s finish to the season, claim a teensy bit of credit for calling it, and hear the resounding conclusion to the contest between young Julisabel and Danny Marang, each of whom made predictions about the Blazers’ post-All-Star-break record. Who won? You might be surprised!

Dave and Dia also preview the Portland-Denver series, talk about the narrow loss to the Phoenix Suns, officiating for small markets, Terry Stotts earning coach of the month and what it means (or doesn’t) for his future, the NBA Play-In Tournament, preferred outcomes thereof, and the transcendent greatness of Damian Lillard, to whom we owe all of this.
