    I'm not saying that I would feel particularly aggrieved if Lillard's mobility was hampered against us on Wednesday, but it feels like some sort of design flaw in the construction of social media that a comment that Lillard rolled his ankle could receive eleven hundred-plus "likes."

    If not for the game earlier this week I'd think I could get tix pretty cheap to this one. Blazers just stink this year.

    Not entirely sure if Lillard's ankle even matters this year. All I have seen him do this year is launch 30 foot threes

    Lillard is questionable for Wednesday's game.

    An important game for both the Kings and the Trail Blazers, it can be a comfortable spot for the Blazers to get back in buisness and strive to get their playoffs opportunity again, only yesterday they lost at home against a very strong Toronto Raptors team, they still have a lot to sell and we all know the Kings are not a very stable team.

    As for the Kings a win against the Blazers will mean that we make another step towards maintaining that eighth playoffs spot and chasing that 7th seed, we had an amazingly close game against the Blazers at home not long ago, where the Blazers were able to squeeze the best out of DeMarcus Cousins, I hope it will be easier this time.

    I think that this one will be very crucial and I hope the Kings will be able to pull a W in this one.

    Winning against these other teams battling for the last playoff spots is a big deal. The refs will be watching Cuz and Leonard closely.

    Winning this game would actually be like winning 2 vs. the Blazers, as it is the last time we play them, and would give us the series 3-1. So not only 1 game i the standings, but winning a tiebreaker should we and the Blazers be tied at season's end too. They'd have to pass us completely.

    Was wondering about that.

    This is by far the biggest game of the season. Team is fired up and focused right now. Blazers are sliding but a wounded animal is sometimes the most dangerous. Should be a great game but I don't see Boogie letting us lose. Not a chance. Folks this is what having a superstar does for you.

    I was amazingly tense during this game. It was very important. A decent team should be able to beat a crappy team even when the decent team is playing crappy.

    Additionally, it helps when the crappy team is also playing crappy.

    Leonard was in the game to provoke Boogie. I think that's what Boogie means by "ridiculous."

    that's exactly what he was talking about.

    If you were a head coach and you knew that he had tendencies to take himself out of the game with hard fouls and constant complaining, wouldn't you try to provoke him as well if it meant giving your team a better chance of victory? I know I would apply that tactic myself with my bigs or forwards and try to mentally dissuade him from dominating me.

    I don't think Portland starts Meyers Leonard in this one. Plumlee defends him better than the rest of their bigs. They might start Ed Davis, who is a decent defender.

    It's fun to pretend it will matter who they will start, but Cuz just started keeping a poopoo list and Portland was the inaugural entry. This is a great budding rivalry and We can expect Cousins to put on a show from here on out vs. Portland.

    Important game in many ways. I really want Rudy to fit in with this squad and if we hover around .500 post Dec 23rd, we gotta keep him!

    I for one hope that Big Ciz doesn't say mean and disrespectful things to Meyers Leonard on the floor. This game is to be played like gentlemen, and there is no need for disrespect.

    Courteous handshakes for all.

    Looks like Lillard is downgraded to OUT.

    Comment: Lillard (ankle) will remain out Wednesday against the Kings, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

    That's fine, but doesn't mean Cuz needs to like it. It can still be both a good tactic and a reason for cuz to be pissed. They got a reaction out of him last game....just the wrong reaction for them.
