    so we've only played 8 games, we can keep second by winning! woohoo. if our guys play every night there is no reason we cant sweep this road trip. toronto is sorry, boston is a surprise but so were the suns, miluwake sucks and brooklyn is surprisingly sucking.


    maybe if we give indiana their first loss the media will lift their portland blackout. :)

    We cant afford to sleep on anybody. We just have to keep playing the kind of ball that has been bringing us success. Spread them out and knock them down. Lopez has been beasting for us in the paint. Three double doubles in a row.I look for Dame,Wes,L.A. and Nic to have better shooting nights. The addition of Mo and Dorell are going to pay huge dividends on the road for us. They know what it takes to win on the road. I think we had all of 11 road wins last year. I might be wrong. Whatever the number, i look for us to be better this year on the road.

    I just hope we build such a lead in the first half that the starters can sit out the 4th qtr of all these games and the bench can get extended minutes. Like you say common, can't sleep on anybody and all these teams have won games against better teams this year. Toronto has beaten a few teams they were not supposed to including I believe, the Heat.

    To both of your points...when the schedule lays out favorably, as it seems to be now, we MUST take care of business, for the law of averages spares no one.

    Exactly BDawg. We have to beat the teams that we're supposed to beat.Dame has been a little off these pass couple of games,particularly at the rim. He's bound to have a Lillard like game pretty soon. Lets hope its against Toronto.

    Just when I think Dame is off, the game ends and he's got 7 assist, 5 boards and 25 pts...BRoy used to do that, have quiet 1st halfs and then take off.

    Batum once said he liked to play hard defense in the first half and wear down his guy, then run him into the ground after halftime. Actually a very good tactic.

    Feel free to donate a portion of those airfare funds to the Bdawg foundation when it becomes clear the NBA Finals aren't in the cards for this year's Blazer team

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    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...
