Hopefully he gets thru this injury, How many games does he miss? AGAIN?
His unavailability is a red flag for this organization, imo. And James Jones
has alienated Crowder this off season.

Pregame they showed a picture of the Blazers from years back and I swear, they photoshopped James Jones' face on his body. It looked terrible. Did anyone else see that?

bridges lack of tight ballhandling skills is really a shame. It’s what will keep him from ever being a star.

Nuggets almost gave Nurkic to Portland. I believe the Nuggets traded him for Mason Plumlee.

Portland constantly attacks Ayton inside. He has two fouls.

I'd like to see Paul give the Suns more scoring.

Portland constantly attacks Ayton inside. He has two fouls.
He regularly allows drivers into his body. I think it stems from two things:

A) as Russ used to regularly point out, despite being so big and a top notch athlete his anticipation for jumping is poor. He’s just not great at timing it.

B) early in his career he had some success playing defense with just length and verticality. Now he relies on that gambit too much which means pretty regularly letting attackers come downhill into your body. You’re kind of inviting contact. The issue? You just can’t count on verticality on every play because you’re going to be moving more often than not.

DA has to adapt.

Neither of the cams is going to make our bench play rough offensively.

I think Ayton would do well to stay don't on fakes, extend arms upright and not reach in.

Eubanks should be ejected for a flagrant foul.
