    Blazers to beat rockets 1st round

    Lamarcus Aldridge will wipe the floor with Dwight Howard bitch ass. Damion Lillard will dominate and Wesley Matthews will handle james harden won't be able to shut him down but can make him work. Batum over parsons any day. Prolly gonna be a 7 game series but I see the blazers taking it

    That's nice, but Aldridge isn't playing, and they are only starting the other 4 so they can claim they started all 82 games, then I'm sure they too will have a seat. MY MISTAKE!!! looked too quickly, thought we were talking about tonight's game.

    I remember watching a game earlier in the season at Portland and said then if they met Houston wins, they seemed the better team, that was when Blazers was beating and shocking everybody. Aldridge doesnt guard Howard, Howard ate Lopez alive, Ill look into more though.

    Are u kidding me Aldridge is all u need? I like Aldridge but guy is a volume perimeter shooter. The Blazers don't have anyone that can guard Howard. Damian Lillard is so so overrated it's laughable. Batum and Parsons seems like a push. Harden can get his against anyone on that team. But in the same way, anyone on the Blazers can get their's against Harden's no defense.

    Mo Williams will be very important for the Blazers. His scoring will be needed. I don't see anyone else off that Blazer bench contributing much, maybe Claver to stretch the floor.

    Thomas Robinson is a beast and Myers Leonard isn't bad but not good. 2 big bodies for the blazers off the bench.

    I feel like Damian lillard is the kinda player that rises to the occasion and will come up clutch in the playoffs for the blazers

    Thomas Robinson sucks. Guy can't make a shot unless it is a layup and makes dumb mental errors all the time. Leonard is the white version of Robinson.

    Terrance jones will guard him will probably be really difficult. Robin Lopez could win the rebound battle on some nights. J Lin will get abused, even Beverley would have difficulty guarding Lillard. I wonder if Mchale tries going with osik + Howard at some point, idk. Both teams starters will play heavy minutes, I say advantage Blazers.

    Terrence jones is an X factor for the rockets. That guy is real good and had a good season.

    Given what an unmitigated disaster it was every time they tried asik and howard I really doubt they do it again in the playoffs.

    Yea he should have a real good career but LMA is another beast trying to guard. @seto I am just trying to figure out how deep McHale is going to go in his bench, but yea thats doubtful i guess.

    As for the series bet I'm not really sure. I like this series to last but Houston's homecourt may prove to be the key advantage.

    Blazers are very resilient team. No sir, the advantage is lamarcus Aldridge. The man can't be stopped.

    I'm going to flat out say that anybody who thinks the Blazers have a chance in this series has clearly not watched much basketball this year and is basically just talking out of their ass.

    i would let lamarcus aldridge take all the mid range, and long range jumpers he wants toward the end of the game.

    Patrick Beverley will take out Lillard with his pesky defence. And Blazers bench sucks except for Mo Williams.

    I see these as back and forth games, perfect for holding off on the team you like as you will most likely be able to get them a few points better at some point during live betting.

    I hope you're right Farmer.
    I played a big teaser on Memphis +11 / Portland +9

    That said, if Memphis covers, will put a small play on Houston ML or -3.

    Hey man I would suggest you take into account other peoples opinions and not just mine if you're not familiar with the sport. Of course these are my own opinions and I'm sure many people disagree with me so don't base your betting on my opinion alone. GL tho

    Damn this series is going to be real entertaining.

    Blazers are 3rd in the league in offensive rebounds. The rockets are 28 in the league in defensive rebounds (light bulb).

    Wow. Today didn't go anything like expected.
    Thought Memphis has beat chance of all 4 road teams for an upset.
    No clue in nba anymore.
    Maybe I won't bet on anything.
    College hoops is way easier.

    Lillard shot 38.6 percent in four games against the Rockets this year. Beverley was a bit of a factor, and the two spoke about their on-court feud after a contest in early March.

    As transcribed by SI.comís Ben Golliver, hereís what Lillard had to say:

    Itís irritating that heís doing all that little stuff like flopping, tying you up and all that for the whole game. But I donít really get caught up in that. Itís whatever.

    Beverleyís response was matter of fact:

    Damian Lillard whines. I donít care what he says. Youíre a grown man. Youíre a professional basketball player ó professional first. Ö I played against all the other top point guards, all the other All-Star point guards, and it was nothing but praise. ĎPatrick pushes me, Patrick plays hard, he forces me to better my game. Patrick does this.í He whines and says that Iím pushing and all that. I just wanted to get that off my chest.

    Good start for the Blazers. I'd like to see it; this Rockets team is heartless.
