Recapping the Enemy: The View From Portland

Pre-, In- and Post-game views from Blazers fans

The following are actual comments gathered from Portland forums

Pre-game views

It wouldn't be a Blazers road trip without them losing to 3 East teams then somehow finding a way to beat Memphis.

Well if we win this, it'd be nice and Blazer-y of us and then we’ll feel good again and go "if ya told me we’d go 2 and 3 over the road trip I’d take it", etc etc.

It would be really nice to get a win tonight, but it’s going to be extremely difficult. Then again, it wouldn’t be the first time that the Blazers win a game they have no business winning. Let’s go for it.

The Blazer will taser and the Grizz will fizz

In-game views

Aaaaand the Griz have responded. So far about 80% wide open shots from mid range.

The Grizzlies are making it look easy. Though I did expect that.

Can we get a stop

Good lord we are playing stupid basketball

A night after Payton went 10-13, Conley is 6-6 in the first half tonight. Lillard's defense is just brutal.

Portland leads 42-39. Less then 4 minutes later, Portland trails 42-53. That's falling into a crater

Well that's the game if aldridge is done

What is it with bad 3 point shooters killing us? First Deng now Green.

it is pretty funny that after LMA is killing the grizz, he gets injured on a Tony Allen reach in, accident? I doubt it.

Randolph is an idiot. He hit that shot but he's a 20 percent shooter from there at best. Stupid stupid stupid for him to take 3's

These refs are complete **** jokes. Tony Allen got away with murder there and then traveled.

Post-game views

Lillard is playing like an absolute pussy. He needs to grow a set of balls and start to take over like an elite player, unless he's just not.

Batum looks like he's injured and Lillard looks like he's lost

I didn't expect to win this game anyway...

well, this season is on the edge of going south in a hurry

First round exit looks more likely each day

How did Randolph suddenly turn into one of my least favorite players in the NBA? He looks like Voldemort.
