We seem to usually play them pretty well so it'll be interesting to see how our young guys play tonight. And please, no more Damon!

We've played EXTREMELY lucky.

Darius is coming back down to Earth.

It's frustrating to watch us at times. We just don't know how to play a smart game of basketball.

Play.

I love Viktors help defense.....He always seems to get a poke at the ball and disrupt the opponent.....his hustle is always great....I love his game and we would be foolish to get rid of him....

No kidding, just imagine how good his D will be once he gets respect from the refs.

Luke Ridnour is losing to the "project" Telfair. I wish we could trade Telfair for Ridnour because Ridnour isn't a "project." I am in absolute awe of Telfair tonight. In the first half alone he has 16 points and 7 assists, shooting 7 of 9 from the field. That is great, I do however dislike his 2 missed free throws.

What makes Telfair's domination of Ridnour even sweeter is that he's 4 years younger than Luke. As Jay Bilas said on draft night: "Luke Ridnour can't guard the chair I'm sitting in."

I strongly dislike Damon Stoudamire.......

BTW anyone check out our bench? It's as thin as I have ever seen it...

Also, I've heard he's short.

Probably because his shoulder got bruised on a play. Of course, this may be Darius just coming back down to earth, but odd coincidence he starts missing badly after hurting his shoulder.

He has been shooting pretty badly all year....

Outlaw and Viktor are our future SF IMO......Miles will be out this summer....

3-7 before the shoulder injury isn't lighting it up.

Play.

Telfair is giving Blazers fans a glimpse of the future! And the PG position will be good.

He's taking what the defense gives. He is penetrating and finishing. He is dishing. He is getting to the line. He is limiting his turnovers.

I love it.

Second half - probably won't be the same for him - but the glimpse was worthwhile for me.

Go Bassy Go!!

I'm still not sold on Telfair. I think he's DEFINITELY got skill, but I just don't like his game.

I like his play sometimes -but he's a PG. He can get some of those shots at any point in the game. He has to try to get people involved rahter than shooting it 5 straight times.

Now - before anyone says something about his assist numbers - they were pretty garbage assists. Swinging it up top for 5 straight jumpers isn't getting good assists.

He had two plays to Joel that were nice looking, but one of them is a STUPID pass that is stolen 9 times out of 10.

I just see too much Damon Stoudamire in him.

Play.

That's because you're so young!! Back in 1978, after starting 50-8, the team ended up signing three guys to finish the season - they had only 5-6 regulars healthy. We would suit up 8 guys for the last games, and we didn't know the names of three of them.

It was ugly.
