We’ll see who gets hotter, the Suns or the Blazers.

Dame had a great All-Star Weekend, and I bet he'll come into this game hot. He's averaging a great season, averaging 29.8 ppg, which is 3rd in the league behind Brad Deal and Joel Embiid.

I take it McCollum is still out? That hurts them a bunch. Without him they have to rely too much on poodoo like Gary Trent Jr, Carmelo Anthony, and Enes Kanter.

Close out on their 3-point shooters and they should be pretty beatable.

Solid start so far, good flow with both teams going back and forth. We've missed a few quick shots and haven't been as tight on defense with Lillard, Covington, Trent Jr, and Kanter all getting theirs.

This might be the fastest I've seen us play so far this season with Paul. Very similar to 7SOL, pushing the ball off scores, quick shots in transition. Bridges with some great scores in transition and cuts, Book moving well, Payne with a couple 3s.

This could get ugly in a hurry if the suns aren't going to rebound and give up almost 50 percent shooting from 3

We look rusty. As long as they keep it within a reasonable margin, the blazers will let us back in.

Suns with a nice run to even it up - well until that final bucket. Second half should be fun...

Tied up at the half after a nice mini run by our guys. Proud of them for coming back after being down by 10+ for a long while. Bridges having a great game. Simons is also playing well for Portland.

Ayton doing his best Corie Blount imitation. Just kind of out there running back and forth. 4 points and 2 rebounds at half. Hopefully they’ll remind him in the locker room that the all star break is over

Ayton’s defense has been pretty solid, especially when he switched onto Dame but...thats about all that’s working for him tonight.

He’s solidifying the notion to upgrade the PF position at the deadline. He’s been a huge negative tonight

The defensive switching pretty bad to start the half.

Mr. Lady Hands got the ball stolen again when it should have been a dunk
