If we respect them and play them the way we did against Miami, I just can't see how we lose this one.

24 games remain, 3 of which are against Portland. A big win puts the nail into the coffin of their playoff chances. The sooner they are eliminated, the less competitive they will be for those other two games.

Finish them.

Portland's starting 5 are really good. They must not have much depth. I know they sure seem to give the Grizz trouble.

I'm with Wells. Knock him and Portland out Wednesday, Grizz !!!

And come on folks let"s have a good LOUD crowd. I will be there, big time.

I was surprised when I saw that, he had been playing on their D-League squad. Hopefully someone picks him up. I'd say we go for it but we really don't have a need for him at this point. As long as we're healthy, at least.

He got co-MVP in the Summer Leage along with Damian Lillard who's playing outstanding for Portland. He never got a real shot here or Cleveland for that matter.

They have the worst bench in the league. They have a promising rookie big man in Leonard but that's it. I watched them a few days ago and wes matthews literally couldn't run. Turned him into even more of just a spot up shooter than before.

If we go 0-2 vs Portland at home, we have problems

Remember how Wes "Kobe Bryant 2.0 version" Matthews burned us at home for the close win? Batum is an overpaid spot up shooter.

Batum is one of the most versatile players in the league and is a top 10 small forward. If he played here we'd be legit contenders

Trail Blazers are playing hard trying to make the playoffs, so they shouldn't be taken lightly. Saying that, it's at our home court and we are the better team.

No he's an overpaid spot up shooter.

So 15 PPG, 5 APG, 6 RPG, 1.3 SPG, 1.1 BPG is just a "spot-up shooter"? Don't forget Batum got the 5x5 stat line this season, where he had over 5 in each category, one of the first players do that in years. He is one of the most versatile players, a great defender, great shooter, good passer, good rebounder for his size, and an overall all around great player.

Ask anyone on these boards and majority will agree that if Batum was on the Grizz, we'd be legit contenders. You put him on any playoff team and he fits like a glove.

Batum is a nut-punching frog. And a rudy Gay light.
