    Hey look at that when LA and Lillard get help this team is not half bad.

    We got a good night from Matthews and Batum tonight which helped a lot. 

    Wesley has started rebounding which is nice he certainly has not done that as much in the past. 19 in 2 games. 

    Robin Lopez still sucks.

    Overall it was a nice win on the road. 

    Can it continue against the Spurs we will have to see but a nice comeback after such a terrible let down game 1.

    I am a fan of Getting Defensive Players This Summer.

    jump shooting team, proved we can kill it when everyone's hitting, what i liked most it lillard attacking the rim in 1st half made for good kickouts and wide open 3's. that's how i like to get 3's not just passing around perimeter. i hope lillard continues to attack the rim and everyone follows his example, then we'd be deadly.

    matthews working hard, seems to be getting better with his handles too. 

    freeland was straight killing it on the O boards and playing some good D i hope his work ethic rubs off on everyone. he better be careful before he takes lopez's starting roll.

    i was disappointed in some of LA's defense, i think he was more focused on embarrassing hickson than playing team defense last night.

    batum came out on fire but disappeared second half, it worked out cause matthews caught fire but i hope that doesnt become habit.

    And LA scored 8 straight points from the post. Back to basket and using his jumper wisely. I'm concerned that he took 26 shots and only got hot in the last few mins of the 4th but I think this is a win that we can be proud of. Lillard is shooting the 3 really well and that makes him so much more dangerous because it opens up space inside for LA and he can also now attack his man with the dribble. 25 assists and 16 offensive boards are numbers that I want to see more of for us as a team. 

    Guys who need to improve: T-Rob, Lopez, Mo Williams. The bench is better this year so I expect we'll get about 25-30 points a game from them with Mo and Wright contributing the lions share. I had hoped that Crabbe and Claver would get a decent run after we ran up that 20 point lead but I guess they'll get their chance soon. 

    I am a fan of shouting Batuuuuuum-Shaka-Laka whenever Nic hits a 3!!!!!

    It was a good win. Lopez did things that don't show up on the stat sheet. He altered shots and boxed out really well. Wes got a career high in rebounds thanks to Robin clogging the lane and denying JJ and Faried space. Wes needed a good game, it's been awhile. Joel Freeland is a keeper! JJ was JJ, LaMarcus schooled him all night. Wes out rebounded JJ last night by the way....just sayin'

    LaMarcus' first win in Denver.  Jekyl and Hyde performance with Wednesday night's shameful display.  The Blazers played with purpose and a determination I have not seen from this team in quite some time.  Attacking mentality offensively, and not giving up anything easy defensively...winning recipe on the road.  Saw some good, hard, clean fouls delivered, a sign to me that this collection of ballers may be different.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
