Game Day: Blazers (5-2) @ Suns (6-1), Fri 11/4/22

Place: Footprint Center, Phoenix, AZ
TV: BSAZ, NBALP

Revenge will be on our minds in the first of two back-to-back home games against the Portland Trailblazers. While Ayton may be returning, the Blazers may be missing their two best players in Lillard and Simons.

Blazers should have trouble creating offense against the Suns defense if Lillard and Simons are out.

They have enough guys to not get run out of the gym, but these back-to-back games against the same team are kind of weird.

Hoping to see Cam Johnson play well again. Also would love to see Cam Payne make some of his layups.

It's so bizarre to play the Blazers 3 times in our first 10 games. But oh well. It's time to avenge our one and only loss of the season. Twice!!

Blazers are straight up put hustling us by a wiiiiide margin. Also this bench lineup is very very bad.

Shamet needs to bring more confidence, especially when he’s the backup one.

When Ayton the only one playing great and showing hustle, you’re in big trouble.

Easily their worst "effort" of the year.

You can just tell we didn’t take this seriously coming in but it does feels like one of those games we’ll play like dog shit for 3 quarters, it’s then come back in the 4th and win.
