    wow we are catching a huge break tongiht with all these teams ahead of us losing!

    Jazz, Thunder and Mavs all lost.

    At this point yeah i'd like for blazers andn wolves to lose BUT it's not all that bad if the CLippers and Warirors both continue to lose...but obviously I'd rather the others lose because they're more likely to fall out of the playoffs/play-in than us and we're closer to passing them than passing the clips/warriors.

    Either way...we can rest a little bit easier tonight knowing all theese teams lost.

    Warriors came back on the Blazers, they’re up 110-95 with 4 mins to go, wolves are up 97-89 with 5 and some to go.

    I can’t root for the Clippers, especially after adding Russ. For the standing we do want them to beat the Wolves, but it’s a good day for the NBA and for humanity itself when the Clippers lose. Also would be so good to have them remain winless since adding Russ.

    And they were 10-4 before that (10-2 when Kawhi played). Just call him a "turnaround specialist!"

    Every loss is now amplified if we can't go on a run. With 2 of the big dogs out, it's looking very challenging.

    lol; good thing i wasn't gambling.

    can't believe how bad the mavs have been. if they finish the year like this, i think some heads roll.

    i was going to pick the spurs over the jazz, but then i was like...nah...

    and i looked smart on the blazers for a minute, too!

    Damn. Looks like they outscored them by 35 in the second half. And Klay finished 8 of 21, after starting 1 for 11, that's a big turnaround.

    Yep, would've been more helpful if they beat Minny. But I'm completely down for the Russ free fall.



    Tonight's games to watch:
    - our OKC game, obviously.
    - Pelicans vs Blazers


    Suns and Grizz play two bottom feeders so that's of no bearing.

    Pelicans vs Blazers is another win-win for us. Don't you just love these games?

    We just need to lose 2 games less than 2 out of those currently in 8,9,10,11 places the rest of the way to be in the play-in.

    Not that big of a task and reportedly an easier schedule.

    Last night was a pretty good night for the playoff hunt. Wish we could have won but Memphis was already a scheduled loss. Really important for us to capitalize the next few games. Thunder, Wolves and Warriors all need to be wins.

    Portland starts a 11 game road trip tomorrow vs teams like Knicks C Bags x2 76ers it's there make or break. Road trip.


    Simons just sprained his ankle he's out for a while. That's 2 losses in a row for blazers when schedule getting harder

    I knew the 11 game rodeo was wrong the moment I read it. I never heard nor witnessed even a 10… let alone an 11 game road trip. Usually you’ll see us or anyone else at 6-8 road games straight.

    so I looked it up, blazers actually have a 6-game road trip.

    It’s ok, we play them March 14, so we can make up a game there, either team losing tonight was good, Portland might start to fall off after this.

    Nice to see a win in a game without the Big 3. Teamwork makes the dream work.
