Portland vs. Indiana

Man this game is LIVE!!!

Roy Hibbert and Paul George playing huge for the Pacers while Aldridge and Lillard are playing huge for the Blazers...Magnificent 4th quarter...Paul George was borderline amazing hitting back-to-back threes, Hibbert was a beast in the paint but Aldridge hit a tough fade-away with DX in his girll and Lillard drained a 3 to put the Blazers in the lead

2 of the top 5 best teams in the NBA without a doubt. I wouldn't mind it if these 2 teams made it all the way...7 games like this one would be awesome

This was definitely a great

This was definitely a great game. PG24 put on a show. For a second, I thought he was going to do a repeat of Reggie Miller vs the Knicks lol.

I'm disappointed in this loss though. Not because I don't think the Blazers are legit, but because this is a game the Pacers should've won. The Pacers got absolutely nothing out of Hill and Stephenson. Stephenson really let the refs get in his head tonight. Stephenson has Russell Westbrook syndrome where his emotions can get the best of him. He had his worst game of the season and fouled out after playing just 29 minutes. The backcourt of Lillard and Matthews (and even Williams off bench) outplayed our backcourt rotation badly.

Even though there were some missed calls here and there at both ends, I feel the refs gave Aldridge an unfair advantage by allowing him to lead with his knee two times in a row vs Hibbert during crunch time. Aldridge kneed Hibbert in the groin/mid section area twice, with the foul being called on Hibbert and Aldridge getting free-throws.

The Blazers are legit though. It's early, but I feel confident saying that. Aldridge is the best power forward in basketball and is just so tough to stop when he gets on the left block. His turnaround over the left shoulder is damn near impossible to stop unless you've got that type of length/reach. And Lillard is a stud. I hate calling guys "big game" players when they haven't done it in the playoffs yet, but he really looks like he's that type of guy.

Would love to see

west finals showdown between Blazers and Thunder.Blazers have one of te most balanced starting lineups in L,they have offense in LA and Dame,Lopez is solid defensive center,Batum is french Paul George(im not saying he's that good,just he's as versatile as they get) and Wes Matthews is one of the most underrated players in NBA.Bench was their problem last year,but adding Mo Will gives them dynamic scorer of the bench plus McCollum didnt yet played,If they could add another solid big to give them solid 20 mpg,they could represent the West in Finals this year

as a blazers fan i'll always

as a blazers fan i'll always be skeptical because thats just the way we all are, but what a start to the season, what a game against Indiana, Paul George absolutely owned i love watching that kid play our two best defenders had no answer for him. Lillard and Aldridge came through clutch in the 4th again if we can beat the thunder ...wow

18 games in and Paul George

18 games in and Paul George looks like a top-five player in the league right now. Dude is shooting the lights out as well as getting to the line more often. His elite defense hasn't slipped one bit either.
