Trail Blazers without Lillard (and Nurkic) shouldn't be a problem.

Coach Stevens will probably try to limit the minutes of his starters from the beginning.
Hopefully he doesn't get too cute with his rotations (since we know the bench can't be trusted) and everybody is focussed, in that way we can finish the game early, such that we can rest our stars in the 4th quarter.

I don't agree with all the load management, at all.

Our starters have had precious few games with everyone out there. The season is 2/3rds over. You can't just throw them out there in May and expect it all to come together. Chemistry isn't a make believe thing.

thought the same thing about the Minny game -- didn't go exactly as planned

I expect our wing trio to feast on this team. Melo and a washed up Ariza? C'mon now lol. We get a nice break with Lillard being out, but we still need to take them seriously.

The fact that our bench is non existent makes a compelling case that this team can be upset by any team tbh.

Why Danny oh Danny did you not make any move to booster this bench is beyond me.

The bench will play well tonight. Kanter, Langford, and Wanamaker will all have good games against this team.

Ha ha, thanks!  But I genuinely feel he has a big game tonight.  He sees Tatum getting all the love, deservedly so, and wants to show how much he has stepped up. Plus we know the Blazers will game plan to double Tatum the first sign he goes off.

With Kemba out, I'm glad to see we aren't going to have to deal with Dame. This isn't a must-win, but this is the kind of game they have to win if they want to catch Toronto. I'll definitely be disappointed if we lose.

If Tatum keeps scoring at this level, Jaylen and Gordon are going to have a lot of opportunities to score  a lot of points.  I am def looking forward to that :)
