Old Blazers tweets are fitting amid playoff struggles

New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday and Portland Trail Blazers forward Evan Turner battle for a ball during the first half in Game 1 of an NBA basketball first-round playoff series Saturday Blazers' Moe Harkless (knee) is questionable for Game 4
| 22 April, 2018, 06:05

McCollum will have to step up as the leaders they are to slow down the explosive Jrue Holiday. Head Coach Alvin Gentry wants the fans to bring the noise again today.

Rondo, Holiday, and Davis have helped the No. 6 seeded Pels take a 3-0 series lead over the No. 3 Portland Trail Blazers. "He's in a different mode".

Turner was held out of Game 3 with a toe contusion.

76ers 106, Heat 102: Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid certainly aren't acting like playoff first-timers, and J.J. Redick provided the veteran leadership that visiting Philadelphia so desperately needed. McCollum's driving layup cut it to 127-123 with one minute to go, but Holiday's jumper pulled the Pelicans ahead 129-123 with 40.4 seconds left. There have been rumors if the Trail Blazers don't have postseason success this year, the front office could choose to break up their backcourt of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum via trade. "[But] we're not gonna get into any situations where the physicality is gonna change the game for us". "He's very confident in what he's doing and the way he's playing".

New Orleans led 36-20 after one quarter and 64-45 at halftime.

New Orleans is 5-0 ATS with 3 unders and 2 overs over their last five games. If they don't find something that works, they're going to be able to enjoy their summer at lot earlier than they would like to.

23-8: New Orleans record (including playoffs) since February 10, a stretch that includes separate winning streaks of 10, four and now eight games.

Portland seems dead in the water right now: dating back to the end of the regular season, they have dropped seven of their last eight games. He has not been scratched, but his effectiveness remains to be seen. Al-Farouq Aminu continued to be the best player of the series for Portland, tallying 21 points and eight boards on 8-of-15 shooting. "If not, it could be a quick series". Down 3-0 in the series, there is no room for error. He missed 11 games. The Heat ended Philadelphia's franchise-record 17-game winning streak Monday, winning with physical defense.

KEEP AN EYE ON: The 76ers' shooting and the Heat's Dwyane Wade. I asked Lindsay if she died her hair red for the playoffs and she said, "It's always this way".

Although there are no guarantees about who will win Game 4 between these teams, expect a physical, tough contest. They've feuded on social media this season.


Terry Stotts compromised this strategy by moving Evan Turner from being the sixth man to the starting small forward. Against everyone else, the three-time All-Star has made 11 of his 23 shot attempts.

Teams that led a best-of-seven series 3-0 in National Basketball Association history have won the series 127 out of 127 times. The game will be nationally televised on TNT.

While the Pelicans surged into the playoffs behind some awe-inspiring play by Anthony Davis, through two playoff games, it's been Jrue Holiday who has sparked the Pelicans into stealing home-court advantage.

On the season, the Pelicans are averaging 111.7 points, 44.0 rebounds and 26.8 assists per game.

In their last five games, Portland is 1-4 ATS with 4 unders and 1 over.

On the season, the Trail Blazers are averaging 105.6 points, 45.5 rebounds and 19.5 assists per game. Dame is now shooting a disastrous 33 percent during the series.

Golden State will have a hard time playing small ball. Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is traveling with the team but will not play in the opening round of the playoff as he continues to rehabilitate a sprained knee.

STILL HOPEFUL: Spurs veteran Manu Ginobili has maintained that Golden State is the better team, but that doesn't mean he's ready to concede the series as it shifts to San Antonio. He's said if he plays, he'll be back with Miami - though there's no guarantee. "We're a great road team, and we know that".

"They're making me give the ball up", Lillard said.
