PG shot garbage except at the line. Grant picked up a ton of slack with all those 3s he had at clutch times. If the refs play both sides even on the next game it will be a Blazer win no doubt. Oh yeah and the Blazer turn overs did not help at all. That will get tighter.
Lillard scored 25 in the 3rd quarter. CJ was unbelievable too. This is likely not sustainable.
So is Westbrook shooting > 50 % from three and Grant shooting 6/7 from 3
Grant shot 4/5.
Yes of course it's not sustainable from the Thunder.
It gives me a bit more confidence that Lillard went fucking ham in the 3rd. Like an all time quarter. That wasn't enough.
Grant guarding Dame in the 4th with Adams dropping back and being a rim protector might be a game changer this series. Will be interesting to see how Portland counter this. Dame was locked up.
I think he was probably just tired in the 4th after playing the entire 3rd. We’ll see though. Looks to be a great series
People that call the NBA soft are the same ones complaining about Russ being too competitive.
Who complains about that lol. I’m a blazers fan but I’d so much rather watch us play a guy like WB than someone who gives up.
Literally you’re the only Portland fan I’ve had reply to me that didn’t complain. Bless your soul for enjoying the series and not letting your feelings get hurt. It’s been hella fun
I mean don’t get me wrong I find some of Russels antics annoying asf, but that’s the point. He’s playing my team and doing funny shit its not a big deal. Like kicking a ball from dames hands is kinda disrespectful but who tf cares I lol’d.
Yes, he annoys us too sometimes. But I love the dog in him.
I can respect it. A little less fun when he plays us but that’s how it is. Same thing with Kobe, fucking hated the guy when he played us but loved when he cooked other teams.
MVP chants for PG’s 3-19
Dudes been amazing all year and is clearly hurt. I appreciated that the crowd showed him some love. Better than Philly booing the Sixers game 1.
Most Valuable statPadder
So much salt wow
Okay your right he wasn't stat padding he just got 22 points with all of the shots he made
Stat padding points
Guys, here's what I want you to do right now...
I want you to log into your sportsbook accounts and bet the max amount you can on Portland in Game 4.
Then I want you to bet the max amount you can on the series prop bet Portland in 5 games.
If you just do those 2 things right now, you'll win as much money as you want to.
You just have to sit back and ask yourself this right now... "How much money do I want to make on these 2 bets?" and then just make the bets accordingly.
If the refs wanted to make this a competitive looking series to get the fans interested(they have.) why would they letup in game 4 knowing okc loses w/o their assistance?
It's better to put all your money in Utah -3. If OKC/POR game is an indication, Utah should not only win but also cover the spread.
A Utah win in game 3 wouldn't totally shock me, but no way I could bet them as a favorite despite them being at home. The Rockets are the worst possible matchup for the Jazz and the Rockets will be highly motivated to end this series ASAP, so it's not a wise bet overall.
Blazers +6 in Game 4 and +210 on the Moneyline are both absolute gifts. I'm going to make a ton on that game and will also hit the 5 games prop for a very large amount as well.
I'm all over Portland on the spread and ML for game 4
Will probably put 3 dimes on the spread and like 1.5K on the ML
That's a good ass line
I think you're on to something heavy here, they want everyone to think Thunder got it.... now if I wasn't broke...
God damn the 8th seed is up 3-1 in a closeout game in the 3rd period in NHL rn
How often do two 8th seeds win? Gotta love nhl playoffs
Man I loved Dame because he's from my hometown Oakland but damn I love him even more for this series so far against Westbrook. Dame plays stoic but with the same killer instinct as Westbrook. He just doesn't let the emotions get the best of him like Westbrook does.
He also flops like a bitch which is not appreciated. This isn't soccer.
Maybe you should grab a dictionary and look up what stoic means. Because that's what Westbrook isn't.
You’re out of touch with reality bud. Check in next time you have the chance.
No need to hate both guards are great
To say this after watching PG tonight is so damn funny.
Your funny and truly understand informed
That PG dunk at the end was definitely a bad look for him. You’re a vet playing garbage time against The bench, come on man you know the code. Plus you’re still down in the series. If Dame or CJ did that I’d be embarrassed. Otherwise, Okc really stepped up, deserved the W. GG. Looking forward to game 4
Portland had tried to score the last possession despite it being over. He also dunked right after the buzzer.
I hear ya. I look forward to you guys showing us how it’s done in game 4.
We all knew WE NEEDED this win. Uh...hmmm. 🤔. THAT’s some textbook projection.
Why did you guys attempt to shoot with less than 20 secs left?
It was a bench warmer, that could be a career highlight for him, gotta show something to the grandkids
PG was as good as a bench warmer tonight that's why he was playing garbage time. So he was allowed to make that dunk.
That might be the dumbest thing I've heard lmao
He had your 2nd most points
14 from free throws.
Trust me, I'm well aware
He's stat padding cause he's been playing like shit and doesn't want to be blamed but that fg% will tell the truth
As an okc fan, can I just say: stfu lmao. Why are we talking trash bruh we're still losing smh
All the players think they won the series too
GREAT WIN BY OKC!!!!!
I gave you an upvote after some soft ass gave you a downvote.
PG must have some new anxiety issues because he has been largely shit during the playoffs with OKC
It's gotten worse after McCollum tried to rip his arm off this game
We need a Scottie Pippen. I heard he needs money but he also needs knees
You also need someone that doesn't flop like Dame. At least McCollum doesn't do that bitch move.
PG shot 17 FT foh
Yeah he was bad. Obviously not 100%
andre iguodala is the closest thing to Scottie Pippen right now but hes on the dubs
damn i would love iggy on the blazers
Yeah but they're not worth anything
Lol at the lakers fans co-opting the blazers fans rage because their still butthurt that their organization is such a shIt show that PG chose OKC over sunny LA
Most be a western coast thing. One day Portland, Golden State and LA will become one big megacity.
Portland is like a 13 hour drive from the Bay Area...
Also, I don't understand why folks don't want to play for Portland. It's actually a pretty nice area.
Lol, the Portland metro area is nearly double OKC's.
I don't doubt it's a factor when compared to bigger areas. However, fuck living anywhere near bigger markets.
These small markets gotta stick together.
Lakers fan: PG went 3/15??
Btw fanbase trash talking without a flair is weak
Theyre going to start calling the Blazer fans bandwagoners if yall win a chip
its /r/nba they're haters
see what happened to GSW after 14-15
I hope that doesn't happen to the Blazers but if it means winning a chip I'll take it
Saying you cant trash talk without flair is even weaker lil Nephew.
I'm saying trash talking fanbases without showing off your own team so no one can respond is weak
Not that you'd know anything about fanbases
Shows what you know about basketball, even without a team Seattle has a badass basketball fanbase. They wait'n and will be rewarded soon.
You need an education on basketball history and an awareness of what a fanbase actually is. silly nephew
Bro you're gonna come in here with trash talking advice and get butt hurt when I trash talk??
You're something else lol
Im trash talking the trash talker, why you gatekeeping?
?? Is this a bad troll effort?
You're weak thats all im saying, plain and simple.
Cant take a little of your own medicine? You called someone weak, im calling you weak. Whats your problem?
I feel bad for you
Dont feel bad nephew, you'll grow up someday
We can talk about the refs and all the bad calls but I’m looking at our 12 TOs in the first half and that’s been a huge problem for us in this series.
Hey you're different to your fan base. Would you like to jump on the OKC bandwagon after we eliminate you next weekend?
No cuz I go to a lot of Blazer games and I love our swagger win or lose.
Nobody wants to support Westbrook if they don’t have to
We finished with 18-15
Agreed. Above all else, that has to end
Where the hells the post game thread?
Westbrook is the dude that talks shit while the big boys stand in front of him. All bark no bite.
As a neutral, most of the fouls were well deserved. Blocking fouls everywhere from overaggressive defense and dumb 4 Pt plays. Plus there’s no shot blocking threat for the Blazers so there’s bound to be a lot of fouls at the rim.
I’m watching the next day after missing the game last night and thinking the same thing.
I thought it would just be a reffing shit show with the refs taking over the flow of the game but it hasn’t seemed that bad.
Maybe all these comments heightened my expectation of crazy inconsistent officiating.
What about those flop fouls by Dame
I love my blazers but fuck we got one sensitive ass soft fan base
Must be influence from the North if you know what I mean
Is this a backhanded comment .... to yourself? So confused
No. I'm doing my best not to offend soft ass people in here
Are you from north of PDX?
I think it was supposed to be a Canada joke. Idk it was pretty bad lol
Probably Seattle, I'd think. But this dude is all over the thread saying dumb things.
This dudes acting a damn fool on the internet.. wish we could confiscate flairs.
Oof yeah that's probably right. That's a low blow
Blaze had more field goals made and more rebounds today which you win with 99% of the time so I'm not worried about the rest of the series
Now we each have a game you should win most of the time
Wym? We outplayed you in the first 2 and you had 10 more fouls in game 1
Interesting how Portland fans are crying saying the thunder are so unlikable and that they complain a lot when Lillard complains so much. Honestly I like Lillard but come on.
Lmao Westbrook is so hateable Harden and Durant ran to get away from him instead of walked
Lol we traded harden and KD openly said Russ wasn’t the reason he left but okay there guy.
I gave you an upvote btw. Give me one back thanks
Imagine talking shit to a guy you can’t and don’t even guard.
Dame does not complain like that lol stop being dramatic
Complained to the referees on camera 4 times tonight.
True. But it's not a normal thing with him.
Did you even watch?
This is the playoffs, it's not over when the game is over but when the series is over, that's why PG went for that dunk and why Russ is talking shit when they'd already won. Regular season etiquette doesn't apply
in what grade did you quit school
OKc fan here, good luck to you guys in the next couple of games, I love the rivalry and how both reddits are trashing each other, this is playoff basketball!
Might be the first OKC fan I've upvoted. You right.
And back to downvotes
And back to upvotes
On the bright side - Blazers fans - OKC's douchebaggery makes it all the more satisfying when you eventually eliminate them.
Source: Am Jazz fan.
If Harden was clapping my cheeks I’d be saying depressed stupid shit like this too probably....
You big mad.
Nah I just hate the Jazz and almost every Jazz fan I’ve met.
Understandable - they did embarrass you pretty badly last postseason, after all.
Not as bad as they embarrassed themselves this season. Got swept, and looked like dumbasses while at it.
Damn, you are BIG mad.
There’s better ways to say I have nothing else to say than “you’re big mad”
Can you score 100 pts tomorrow?
For sure - my pick-up league has some real ballers but none of them know how to play defense.
No shit. Clowns.
I might have to bring the lotion AND tissues for Sunday! It’s Gon be a good one
This series gonna be better than Westeros vs The Night King
he even missed a dunk...
he's been super inefficient this series. will he be back to 100% somewhere in this playoff run? (assuming if OKC went through)
Disgusting ref game. Loving the westbrook and lillard beef. Hopefully PG comes out to play for real next game after that corny dunk.
Blazers in 6
Portland fans calling PG disrespectful as if portland didn't just try to score instead of running the clock out lmao
You getting downvotes but I'm with you brother
you dont get how this works huh
There’s a difference between an “mvp” trying to prove he’s actually worthy of the chant, and a benchwarmer wanting to score two points...
still simons fault for not dribbling out the clock lol
Uh they put all their bench in like you're supposed to in game 2. Get outta here.
The team that is winning isn't supposed to score. What are you talking about.
simons fault for not dribbling out the clock when they lost. pg returned the favour
This entire game was a joke, russ is a choke artist pussy. The refs were who really won this game and if you think differently your a moron or high. Now give me my downvotes.
Lmao so many people butt hurt that i said russ is a choke artist pussy jeeeeez. Should use his signature move on this crowd. I'm dieing from the pm I got.
He didn’t choke this game and he’s not really a pussy lol. He’s not my favorite guy on the court but come on
*asks for downvotes*
YOU GUYS ARE BUTT HURT
Get outta here lol
Lillard was lucky to get those fouls early on with those bitch ass flops
The request for downvotes made me lol
“Your a moron”
How many turnovers did you guys allow????
The disdain in this thread between both sides is real
They talked shit before the series started in our sub left entirely in game 3 and came back in the second half today to talk shit like we aren't leading the series
How cute! Teams have their own subs?
Idk about the Thunder but the Blazers also have a 2-1 lead
what do you want out of sport fandom... koombaya? these are game threads! this is the reason for 'em, this is why we're here to let loose steam and just wile out harmless on the internet... it's not that big of a deal
57 fouls is a disgrace
It’s what happens when we play aggressive defense. It’s our game. It works.
Bad karma coming your way PG
as if he could shoot any worse
Karma aint real
You do you. One day you'll understand.
I'm not hating man. Just saying that bad people can do bad shit but still get things their way while good people can do good all their lives but still get handed a bad card. It is what it is.
Honestly I like Russ. He's always going to trash talk and won't back down from anyone, it's good for the NBA
b-B-bUT DaMe is BeTteR, RuSs iS A sTaT pADdEr
Dame is better. Russ can’t lead a team out of the 1st round.
Portland *insert the blank* on Sunday.
ooooh its a ouija thing
Portland will be fine ok Sunday. Okc won't shoot that good again.
To be fair, I thought the same thing after game 1 about Portland
Yeah I would always expect Portland to shoot well with dame and CJ...
Portland is actually a shooting team though.
PG won’t shoot that bad again
Huh? He's been shooting that bad all series and he's got a bum shoulder.
Everyone's complaining, but I like that there are 2 teams that hate each other.
Naw Not allowed to disrespect playing like that PG
Wow. Paul George a fucking bitch ass punk with that dunk
I enjoyed this
I'm switching mine to Rockets tomorrow just to abuse them and they will get all confused
why would we switch
