The effort was great tonight Deron, but your attempt to prove that you are a better player than Brandon Roy fell short my friend. Many are calling this your second straight year of All-Star snubbing, but after watching tonight, I'll obviously have to disagree. Brandon Roy, at this stage in his NBA career, is better than you.
Unbelievable effort tonight from the boys in black and red (and white)! From the opening minutes all the way through to the final buzzer, Portland brought their best.
Game thoughts in fantastical bulleted format:
- Welcome back Joel Przybilla. 17 boards big guy, nice.
- Oden displayed his achilles heel again. Fouls.
- And Sergio was about to have a career night. Then started hacking.
- While Brandon was unstoppable and seems to be finding form.
- Milsap's foul issues were a gift to Portland.
- And Okur finally did not catch fire vs. the Blazers.
- And I guess I should say it...nice game Deron.
- Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!
