Go Blazers!

Lets get another winning streak going again

11-15-2008, 08:29 PM
This gotta be a win.

The matchup should be Aldridge vs. Kevin Love.

11-15-2008, 09:17 PM
Jefferson is way better then Love, thats why i put him against LMA.

11-15-2008, 09:37 PM
Blazers lead 27-25 after 1. Roy and LMA have 6 pts

11-15-2008, 10:39 PM
I'm not watching the game right now, how the hell are the Blazers down by 12 (3rd quarter)??

11-15-2008, 10:44 PM
im not watching either, but the Blazers are playing like crap. they are down 8 with 3 mins left in the third.

Common Blazers we need D FENSE

11-15-2008, 10:56 PM
After 3 Wolves lead 71-65.

Time for a come back. the Blazers need to step the the D, minny is shooting 50% from the field

11-16-2008, 12:15 AM
Blazers win :up:

11-16-2008, 12:54 AM
my favorte part of the game was that the blazers came back and gained a lead while oden was playing. i loved that block on kevin love in the beginning. i cant wait until they give oden 30-32 minutes.

11-16-2008, 12:55 AM

Great come back win on a back to back.

With a pit stop in Portland I know we can get a win against the warriors to go four and one on the first road trip of the season. very impressive if you ask me considering it took till the middle of December to get our first road win last season.

Of course once again BRoy does it again when it counts most. He has got to be one of the most clutch players in the NBA.

Finding a way to win game that you just cant get going in is a very important attribute of a great team.

And oh yeah, G.O. has arrived and is only going to get better with playing time.

11-16-2008, 12:23 PM
The only weakness I see on this young team is sometimes defensively they lose focus leaving opponents wide open for uncontested shots. I'm sure that is something coaching staff will work on with them. Other than that the sky is the limit for this young Blazer squad they really have a chance to be extra special.

11-16-2008, 07:38 PM
lmfao did you guys see Greg Oden being interviewed by Rebacca Harlow afterwards? He looked atleast twice as big :|

ugly but good win

btw A.Mopp :P, it's spelled przybilla not pryzbilla :$

11-16-2008, 09:12 PM
lol my bad

read the edit on the OP, Tblaze

11-16-2008, 11:43 PM
By January (next Lakers-Blazers game), the Bynum-Oden matchup should be a reality :)

11-17-2008, 01:26 AM
it will be a good one
