    Without Nurk, I won't give Portland much of a chance. OKC in 6 here.

    Okc in 7. Russ has tendencies to choke and questionable shot selection

    As long as RW makes himself the "hero" and plays his usual self for stats, the Blazers will have a chance. :lol:

    POR 4-2 OKC



    we trust RWestbrick will play hero ball and start shooting bricks trying to win the game.

    Loko. Kung manalo okc, baka maglabas ng kapa yang si mr.pogi at mabuhay yung mga bitter kd haters at umuusok pa ang mga ilong nila. :lol:

    Westbrick will get his usual triple doubles, but his poor shooting, bad shot selections especially in crunch time and tendency to play hero ball will always give any opponent a chance to win. Thunder"s fate will depend on pg13's performance, and he is not 100 percent healthy. Blazers in 6.

    I can feel there's gonna be a Dame buzzer-beater over Westy in Portland... but still, OKC in 6...

    OKC in 5 or 6. Dame has yet to prove that he can win in this level.

    Huh? What do you mean "in this level"? The only reason they don't have much of a chance in this series is because they're missing Nurkic.

    Uhm, please revisit the 2018 Playoffs. Blazers were also seeded no. 3. Dame averages 18 ppg, shoots a measly 35% from the field, including just 30% from 3 pt range. All Playoff career lows. He was embarrassed by both Jrue Holiday and Rajon Rondo. Blazers lose 0-4.

    So yeah, he pretty much needs to prove he belongs here.

    Yeah, I'm aware of that series and you have a point but there's clear evidence contrary to your original post.

    If Lillard needs to prove something, so does Westbrook because he has never made the 2nd round as a #1 option while Lillard has. Let's see if "Playoff P" shows up this time as well because he got punked by Joe Ingles last season.

    No disagreement there re Westbrook. I just feel like Dame has a bigger chip on his shoulder since they were blanked last year and they're coming in again as a higher seeded team. There's also talks as early as the off-season that if Dame and the Blazers bomb out early again, ownership might break the team up and shop him around.

    OKC 99-104 POR



    looks like the injury of JNurkic was a big blessing. EKanter happened and the PTBlazers are running.
  • XanaxXanax Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Adams vs Kanter, haha
  • bigboy0101bigboy0101 PEx Rookie ⭐
    Dame dolla showed his playoff capabilities. Its dame time!
  • balthierbalthier Your idol is a has been PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    I think of all the matches, this will reach game 7. 
  • CaptainCharismaCaptainCharisma Moderator PEx Moderator
    Portland made a wise move to sign Kanter. They have enough insurance to weather Nurk going down cause they also have Collins and Leonard. Let’s see if they can build momentum after finally getting a playoff win after getting blanked last year
