And I announced after he's just hang it out fast is he John wake tonight and clean tomorrow in. Yeah I I think I will say here excitement over are going to see John way to unite with Crawford is is a little disturbing. Like I disturbing on the disturbing scale your excitement about seeing that movie is probably a nine out of ten I like ya know re sync your dad jacked up oversee MM well. Haven't seen it but I heard the first hole was actually turn. Thank you Mike thank you. Odd there's like one and the whole notre seriously I mean it's curious do you expect trash right well and it's really yeah do you do expect trash that's yeah that's not true at all as energetic guys never done a good movie is like you have to make. Wasn't a multibillion dollar franchise when he dirt you don't like me Turkey Q I'm not UG HN Atrix I'd be ideals all it's the rural blue grill all moon guide to both for him you're human. I am human now I am a human you know what's the problem with the third is he can't appreciate so this is the big difference between us in this regard. And Mikey may disagree with is still. I love sometimes I loved bad movies and I think they're good because there's so badly after periods yes well we all have we all have movies like that you have a ton of them mobilize all Loy love lost and various town alum. Key honorees is Conrad for me if he's good I'm surprised them happy but most the time no expectation and I still may walk away satisfied. Like Eddie wood the first John when acts or use same and you're xxx because it looks like her probably will yeah yeah yeah Zander cages back me and how do you not go see Vin Diesel and relax person about how are we talking about who is Zander cage shoots xxx but xxx the moment anyways this my whole point to this is dirt is so sensitive to Hillary's movies because he has this. Real idea that. People appreciate you know more than his guy Nick Cage they do resort turns into instead argument for him Nick Cage is but now he's put up better movies in galleries. I would do is I would say the Nick Cage is more appreciated encounter Reeves. By far. Communication is done. Actual like real movies. Not just like. Well point break thank you basically like these days it active he's done that we I'm not saying that it was a brain is the good movie but this is why will we debate better actor Nicolas Cage is the answer now like you know the only answer right exactly the fans and bands are good Chris my mommy come by the hour yeah. Always a really they're connected Jersey. Did beautiful neighborhood by the way thank you. I doubt watched every Christmas I love and aren't analysis and I love Nick Cage inks Hillary's but he can't appreciate Keon though because he's indicates it's a very weird complex that he had a lot of folks again upset me and that's what we just counting votes personal like your disrespecting general reason his incredible lion DB page. The second thing it's. I hate that you say if you're doing an action we Keon it will. That's a huge genre though. And you're admitting that yacht it was better in a big genre yeah he is our out. Give me that I will admit that he's better and action movies but let me put that question on sixty seconds was great it was unknown in his address second it's a good action movie until both guy just unlucky on a two dogs but when you talk action movies that's different then having a debate of who's the better actor that better actor is completely different and action movies action movies he's not even and half the thing himself half the time it's a stunt double. John what I would does his own stunts by the way all okay and yeah a lot of money back because he's a huge shared he'd argued after you Jin. How many lines that he actually having John wait I mean I'd set the over under probably around fifty total OK as some of the lines like hey. You are back you out I love the trailer right John we Tuesday yeah. I'll figure number back OK there's there's one guy out of his 48 lines in the movie. So yeah if you wanna say he's better in action movies I will I will give that to you seven days a week but no he is not a better actor than my boy Nicholas K Nicolas Cage is a better actor Burt metallic both of them part. I mean to be an like quote and quote yeah an illicit embrace of a deployed Nicholas cage's won an Academy Award for best actor he did what was the movie was was it com. Had its in my mind I got a right here Las Vegas clank and I know your dad shouldn't. No I was nominated in that yeah Leaving Las Vegas las there was also nominated in 2002 for leading actor is it ended in a dash and how many times is Keanu Reeves been nominated for best actor for Oscar. Matrix but I have to do no actually was not nominated for best actor and that movie in my don't want the movie of the year but Ito he was not nominated for bad after all they are you kidding me his acting was not pegged right now who hate ya know read I don't. I don't hate yeah Reeves and his don't think he's a good candidate yeah I think he's a bad actor by the way I don't good movies what he's a bad actor can be you'll only find a common ground to see you need the matrix I feel like that hate is too he's trying to lower I've seen the matrix multiple times I don't hate the matrix. I just didn't get into the matrix fever like a lot of people I have a real problem with the statement. You guys saying he's a bad actor and I'm not arguing with some of the movies he's done he's a bad actor let's not act like he didn't make great classics like the lake house all right we all watched the late house. No in seriousness it's not like the matrix the very first one is nothing but action. There's a lot of dialogue in that thing all year dialogue and good in that movie. Yeah I mean the problem is is that. He was typecast. Every single time after the majors to be the same person is now I don't he can't have emotions he has to say everything with a very flat monotone voice. That's a serious. What about the replacements and he cleans votes turned football player I think that's pretty impressive I bought it he yells out through the game is the Ohio State quarterback did the yes he was very again and NG hack mental do you want the ball. Inlet game on the line well I don't know about you the bright side dot meet the website that everybody goes to for acting yet they list him as one of the nine mesmerizing actors to never be nominated for an Academy Award mesmerizing mess the what I haven't mesmerizing act journalism let's say using equal to source then again that's I love Carrie right arm dot com now it's outside dot -- bright side that meet what does it got me would you like to explain what it -- media is all about me dog it's when I'm writing and don't worry running videos disagree about what I'm writing right now at a Macedonian website that's like their by the way Brad -- never been nominated for an Academy Award this year bad actor Johnny dumps and never been nominated this year a bad actor ever see. The news yesterday who have done. A wide array of types of movies Stevens is saying it at Academy Award does not have to be the end all be all of an argument of who's a good actor no it's not the end all be allele had never won one. And L recently with the revenue and but I I'm telling you that Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp have never been nominated let. Didn't hit them okay that's wrong idea actually miss read that I would be like they've never won nothing there you go dealing him at both of them have been nominated multiple times. Yeah yeah yeah yeah stepped in a little bit I'm sorry that's about it let's let's agree let's let's agree on something here OK can we find common ground to close out this argument one that they're both bad actors. I don't I I just I noticed the irony is sorry that for the most part I've. I've legitimately what the weatherman would Nick Cage is one of the more underrated comedies I've ever watched. And I will go really sentimental although family man cameraman to solve really good in fairly male variety wakes up he's got families nearly billionaire hunt a millionaire that turns into the Family Guy lives in Jersey and then you get here in your ghost writers. Yes no doubt you know as well look every every actor has their money grab it and if you straight to dealing generals got straight to dvd movies den Niro they both have good movies but I'd take Nicolas Cage over Tia honorees its pages in this roster come regarded him to second did I stop fighting for acting chops gimme Nicolas Cage it's just it's a genre. What genre movie are you doing. You wanna make money you're going action and your picking Seattle reads. Watch John only to be an on movies is often a patent and diesel what else is out probably if you take it Vin Diesel come on my birdies under my it was fun as it had a year I would take the rock over everybody trio. The rock me if passengers do it again he did I gotta give a lot of credit for that as a fast entries got an outnumbered on the show now why don't just like boat that's my problem with few. I like a mostly you have this like oh I'm Nick Cage and I can't. Support ya know Reeves thing it's like it's like being in the Yang man you can't like Nick Cage Yankee honoree Howard being in Yang we were basically just said they both some connecting their are rivals and generate are not rivals are not rivals remote go ahead and paroles for twenty years they both have cult classics. Right. They both have great movies and they both have a lot of sinkers. They're kind of the same not rivals they're very similar.

What the worst loss last night the blazers seventeen point lead to the Celtics. Where the next nineteen point lead you silly we'll talk about the next nectar and spray happy Friday on 1080 different. You'll get hit rob hey buzz. And welcome to all week. He didn't stop me from CNN. On them cop beat miss what is Durbin stories are intended those. Ladies and ducks really crap the bed yesterday and solid Thursday nights and I I got to watch in person the blazers blew a seventeen point lead. Isiah Thomas and that's about it Al Horford did little. Did have a great game. And then now I watched the end of the dot game on the concourse with a bunch of people by the way because it just happened to hit half time. And then I'm an omen re watched the hold that game so I got to watch them blow in nineteen point lead. Not a good night. For the deaths in the blazers yesterday agonize for the state organ yet organ state losing as well extending their company don't seem to mention the boys basketball team it was stage how bad they are this year yeah I just that that one stung him really did watch and that organ UCLA game the they build a nineteen point lead there are up by basically double digits and again led by nine at the end of the first half got off to a good start. And the second half and it rim really felt like what could have been a statement went for them on the season that there are top five team that blood Arizona on Saturday in a follow that Arizona went up. With a win on the road against a top ten team and you gave the stat yesterday all time but the war against top ten teams. If felt like that was kind of their moment. And the agency. UCLA change and things defensively organ just started to check ups about looks they were taken into their offense quick enough. I don't know they were just trying to run the clock out and that's why there wasn't maybe the same sense of urgency. And you combine all that Alonso bald deleted at the end of the ball game and you get into one of those close match ups with a player like blondes a ball on the other side. It's very tough to win well and sometimes a player hits a shot. There's literally nothing you knew shrug your shoulders at what am I supposed to do that last 3-D it was like a waste five feet behind the line will and Dylan in is still jump down out I'm going to hand in his face any Stiller Eddie was like his little brother playing high school it and I thought the same way too straight about the delay at the end before that he drove in between like three guys in the paint is like a double Paul found out how even got the shot off. And that one hand you know. It's not encouraging you hate to watch a team lose and blow a nineteen point lead I will say I still walk away having watched that game. With the same thought I had going into yesterday. This team may not be a one C now because they don't really have a great road win on the resume its gonna be tough but if you win the conference maybe things shake up for either way college Basque was gone you can't look past it. But even if there are two seed for example. I still don't that they came didn't change anything in how wide view Morgan it's a tough loss it's brutal some people passed. But if you play the way you played for most of that first half and build a nineteen point lead on a top ten opponent on the road. If that's the working your going to get and that's the million dollar question but it you're gonna get that organ. That organ can win the national championship and that might sound crazy to people because were so he's saying Kentucky duke. Arizona UN seat whoever Kansas. It's hard for be fighting to comprehend that looking college basketball this year who's a great team. It's this might be an hour on yeah even playing field college basketball seasons we've seen in a long time Mike Mike is a Syracuse guy. He can relate to this do it how many years do we really see seasons like this. Where the number one team can tag up okay great doubly was in zag when I see it yet another planet so who is the best team Kansas just blew a double digit lead Iowa State at home last week and Arizona lost by DM near forty nor in Kentucky loss to Florida and even though they blew a nineteen point lead I still think you walk away a little at this point but also. They could still win the whole damn thing. Yeah building in nineteen point lead on the road is impressive eleven play great defense Alonso ball and in the first half like you know I just it's one of those things where you don't line. Maybe teams to figure out things about that eight minute stretch and and that was the the only concern as it was or something out of this game that teams could take defensively. To use against Oregon moving forward and it did Dylan Brooks has been great this series on a lot of big moments I got off to a great start last night the big dog you know that and sport center top ten play. I feel like at times he does fall in love with the long ball a little too much and he was five and I'm from three last night but. About he took a couple of bad shots late and and just really need the offensive flow you could tell they all that was pissed on the sign on the offensive flow in the second half. I just wasn't the same but I would in terms of it doesn't change my mind about what the ceiling is for this team a lot and has to do with the year that room viewing in college basketball. But also a lot of Vanessa do with the talent on this team like they they only went seven deep yesterday but all seven guys. Found a way to contribute in some way shape perform I still love the way patent Richards playing Amy look at his box score basically every night. He is the epitome of efficiency. Every time he's on the court so they so I'm talent and with everybody in the country just you can't. When your and one of those tough stretches go through it eight minute. Route where urge -- where you just can't try to buck Monroe and I think this year could be a pretty big year for organ obviously they're having a great season but they're well on their way to having one of those top three seeds. Unless something drastically happens. I was kind of thinking a little too in and you briefly touched on this when we retirement this pre show. I'm just not. It's hard to see typical organ because this season is far from over March Madness is crazy in this team could still win the whole thing. If not get to a final four. But they're still our moments I think for organ where they had that football run. Sodium clothes and Tony ten losing by the field goal when he got there and fourteen but Ohio State in an up just bulldozing in the second half. You've been close hoops kind of the same thing Dana Altman had his team there they get to a sweet sixteen a sweet sixteen. An elite eight maybe this is the year they breakthrough but you just you wonder at what point does organ breakthrough. With their their men's basketball team or their football team edit it there there's a thought process out their from a lot of organ fans that at what point can you take that next and you want it like this is great but gee there's that next step to you're like come on punch through it in from the the football pro. Am knocked on the door for five years and it just that William little trip up late in the season and Horry as you mentioned the Albert national title game dire knock on down the the way Ohio State played in the second half you're knock on the door you can't quite beaded gown same thing of basketball I mean you go on those great runs with Ernie camp where you got great teams. You make it to the elite eight you can't get over that hump make a final four last year he blog duke in the sweet sixteen I think allow the cut down to this team is. And then you run an Oklahoma and he is don't really have a chance so. I'm not gonna go it insane that's. The example of an Oregon team they can't get over the hump because it's a regular season game yeah it's way too early for this year is seen as a side as much talent to stack of anybody in the country and you know it is backing it happens in the sweet sixteen in the elite eight that's absolutely the conversation up once again a great organ team they can't knocked on the door they had the talent to do it but for whatever reason fall short. But I'm not gonna do that as are still too much time lap. Well in the instinct thing too is and that moments and we saw this last night against UCLA where. Part of blowing that lead is what you said of offensively looking just a little disc combined related later killing clocked in not taking great shots when you get numb. In defense of we I mean you got to give a lot of credit to UCLA. Not only did you kind of go into a funk but the Bruins played great defense and then. Sometimes man a program like UCLA gets talent like Alonso ball. What what do you expect week what can you do league we've seen this in college basketball time. And time again. The best players on the best teams. Taken over at any given moment and there's almost nothing these teams can do no Mans a balled into an inning in the first half he finished with fifteen points he saw as box score you go up. OK TJ Lee fighting was four of twelve to Geneva's foretold they points you walk away you go all oak leaf was 412 ball finished with fifteen. Organ probably won that game but they came all the way back they finished the game on what a twenty to three run. I think a lot of what happened last night. I don't like to not give credit to the other team aisles hitting a lot of it is look in the mirror and say all right what did we not do well and what do we change going for Lloyd in. You know you mention the 23 run that happen in the second out I think that was another positive I will take out of the game is not many for organ but that's one of them is that you know they go on that's waited three run and it organ went from leading by nineteen being down by five. And that was that's like an old dam moment let what happen and even when they were down by five. They still found a way back into it they may have Pritchard made a Big Three I UCLA helped them by missing a couple of free throws to extend their chances. But they have the ball in their hands on the last possession with a chance to tie the game now not the possess he wanted dating get a good luck. But to still be in that spot after blowing a nineteen point lead being down by five they still found themselves and an opportunity to tighten senate. Overtime what do you think the org index he still hopeful they can be a final four this team when using your game last night 55305. We'll talk a little more about that also the blazers. The blazers blew a pretty big lead to the Boston Celtics don't discuss that next the first Mike with a sports update. They didn't have me hot. And don't. This is third in spurred on and they need those sand. Bum a little bit of a horse's ass today. I forgot we had an interview at 1230 feet up Brian Anderson online mail we do swagger look this tonight totally forgot about this why guards at a town some Michael McCain brain Anderson TNT to reclaim producer roulette today. It is why guard is calling he's come back on Monday so he's flying back today. So let's bring among us for him on the radio show now Brian Anderson he'll be on the call for the AT&T game blazers and hawks on Monday the blaze get the whole weekend off. No becoming our face I blown seventeen point lead to the Boston Celtics. I pace for joining the show O'Brien it's good to have your animals tries to left forgotten our producers that sound. Yeah and you you you really not a welcome element of the forgotten announcer. I a look at my career much like a rep for re so you don't notice me up I feel like I have done a good job. In our. Very hateful divisive world out there so I'll just slip under the radar man it's okay. Well it's not him but love for us on this show but I do want to ask you know as a guy that any cover baseball you cover basketball. What have you made of the Portland trailblazers in their season thus far. Then I'm it's such an enabler item in the I had I had obviously had a guys in the postseason last year and terrific first round win then and I've loved what the way it was trending and and I have that series. With the warriors and then stepped curry scored seventeen points and overtime period and it just felt like. As Paul Allen jaw dropped so did mine and everybody else's in Portland and it just. I don't know why I wish I had a better answer for him I'm anxious to bigger and I'm working with Brent Barry on Monday in obviously watching a lot of games from. So far and you know it feels like to me. Being no basketball analyst but it feels like to meet. You know the front court has just. We just have issues with you guys in the front court and then who who can be that guy who can step up who can be the defense of sacred time you get great scoring in the backcourt and eleven regards you know that tandem is as good as. Is anybody in the league so it is it is and it mama huge fan of Terry stopped a big believer in heaven what he. Is about Tom my hunch is. That this team is gonna get it together get it going a little bit about the category but that win at Dallas was gonna. Propel them but then they run right into Boston. And Boston is so good Boston is one of those surprising teams not and they evolved they've been a good team last few years now they've taken that to. Of this elite level I think there in that company. Sounds so you kind of ran into a buzz saw even on the road yesterday in the they have so many weapons so you know may be in a different scenario that that might be kicked off a nice little run your back at home coming off that. Late victory in Dallas and so but it didn't happen until I got to regroup and there's always a trap schedule right you've got. The blazers only have two games before they also breaks the best bid for a little while they've got a little mini break coming right now they've got a crick a backup on Monday with a us. And then turn around play two days later in the not too all star break and a lot of players going around the league you know it just a lot of players and coaches are terrified of this moment. Lead after the all star break the pleasure you. You finally get a window breathed a feel player in the body is hurting in you you've finally get a chance to recover a little bit on the a lot of players that are. Eyeing that all star break coaches Serbs try to make sure they don't check out too soon so that this will be an interest in a couple of games coming up for you guys. Yeah yeah we've seen a lot of teams that have gone on vacation one game too early and got Brian Anderson on the line he's gone ablaze as Sox game. A DNC Monday night 730. Threes it I'd I do Massey a professional question because IDC mentioned you call these gains are TNT we all Malia from the MLB postseason on TBS. But I know you as well probably the for the longest time because I'm of purchaser of the MLB extra innings package every year and you already had a TV voice of the Milwaukee Brewers. Which maybe this is like asking which of your children you like best but which one do you enjoy the rest. Yeah well as a as a paid professional announcer we I'll tell you that I love doing whatever I'm paid to do I do majority every sport but I'm doing but baseball. You know they are played baseball growing up I've played in college. My brother. Played in the major leagues and is now. Assistant to the general manager with the Texas Rangers so baseball is in my blood and it's a very natural thing. For me to go to a baseball game even though. I think most of coaches would tell you baseball the toughest to call play by play. Permit to carry opposite because it it is so ingrained in me but it ought. I played basketball growing up as well I called a lot of basketball to what I was even in in the minor leagues during their baseball I still. Worked a lot of basketball spent. Fourteen years with the San Antonio Spurs eight of those years as a sideline reporter. The first six were I was actually a technician out to handle cameraman and other audio and this golf document in my college days when I was an intern talked a lot time of that organization I was there basically through. The beginning of the Gregg Popovich era I was there is there for the sideline reporter. For the first championship in San Antonio. So you know I've been connected to basketball or not. You know feels very natural to me as well I love the NBA or love college basketball doing NCAA tournament so. Can't say it's what's my favorite baseball probably the most comfortable basketball is. The one that brings the most energy that I can get to the top of my range and you know for an announcer you're just it's great to do great gains and I've silicon mask or you get that a lot. There's not that Monday and there's not other storytelling. Aspect that baseball would offer. Which is you know that's a part of my. My game too but basketball just. You know kick it in fifth gear and let bottom so that's what it that's what feels like. We're talking with Brian Anderson easy mimic on TNT for blazers talks on Monday. He's joining us on the Gil Morgan's global hotline will since you don't have an allegiance. Then I got to ask you this question who's gonna win a championship first if you were a betting man who would you put money on to win a title first in the respective sports the blazers or the brewers. I bet that not only and that's the great questions thanks time. Would have to say a busy at this moment I would say beat blazers so I think the the brewers are. Are a long long way from that it is his team ninety minutes south of Milwaukee that. Might have. A lock on the division for a little when the going so. I'll go ahead and if you blazers on that looked like Portland I mean you guys around every day but for me they they just feel like a piece away from. From being that elite level teams nocturnal look at Boston last year and what they've been able to do it. NIC portal opt out or Lewis trimming their way I still think Portland gonna make the playoffs I think there are gonna have a flurry vote. I think this is the key index. Could get a lead. Quickly I think there's a very good team in a play off type. Team in my mind still comes until proven otherwise but. You know I think there are a lot closer than Milwaukee. What would you may we talked a lot about yesterday the the proposed rule change from Minor League Baseball do have the extra inning start with a guy on second base and he's certainly Arizona Fall League. And in another league is well that is starting in mobile what do you make it in it's a good idea. From network to try to mean I think. One thing you're always worried about in the lower level of my colleagues especially in an open up mileage especially the lower levels as. Is innings and all those guys on earnings restrictions so you've got to do it you do it down there. And just to see how would go my guess is it would not be favorable. At the Major League level and so I'm okay whether I'm a traditionalist I go you know for me I love the game the way it is in nine innings and ninety feet but I understand. That there is a disconnect and the if you're trying to set the game up for the future. Somebody's gonna have to make it really unpopular decision and rob Manfred has the baton right now Bud Selig was unwilling to do that. And I don't blame him because his tenure was coming to an end but somebody's gonna have to make a very unpopular decision on what to do. What the game the deemed healthy and thriving in and you know it's making a ton of money and it's a huge revenue producer however there is taken tires loss of fans that aren't connected and really don't care to be connected to baseball and beat beat target audience in the audience is getting older and older and so you have to start thinking about other measures and as a traditionalist I would hate to see the game changed. But on the other and I would also like. To see the games survive and thrive. And I think they're gonna have to make some. If they're gonna make changes you gotta go drastic so for me what I have lined up in the passive. You know I take too stiff to tell us say okay if we're trying to capture people who are fans. Here's what we should do seven inning games two halves. From the war about extra innings that's not a for me. And keep your rosters at point five throughout the season and announce a taxi squad in September meaning you can bring guys up that you have to announce who you're 25. Players are so seven inning games. Is. Bring the starting pitcher back in to the picture. You know you'd play two halves which is gonna bring a lot of different teams. Obviously you'd you'd chuck and run the first perhaps you can always rally up and regroup and it's a two seasons and won that that's kind of how it operates in the minor leagues. They don't play seven games with a plea to have a lot of leagues. And it does give you a chance to reset now that's what I would call the nuclear. Decision. And my I would be okay whether they decided the that obviously if they feel like things are good the way they are that you just leave on the way they are people who RB fans if you're thinking it's cyclical and fans will come back. Then you trust your game which is a great game and you trust everything that baseball is and can keep its connection to history and just let it fly and take. Take your punches on why people don't like baseball. So I could go either way if you ask me how to actually. Grabbed. The audience that is not interest in baseball this moment those would be my suggestions. I dejudder on this one as quick as we can't because we're up against it if you're making a movie who you want to start in the cage Keon Lawrence. Except that allow. Have to go it it godly men I I you know I don't know. Probably can read the. Back. Brian Anderson and make sure you tune in on TNT on Monday he'll be on the blazers and hawks call without with Brent Barry. Thanks so much Brian for joining the show would love to catch a lead on the road. Anytime you guys forget about having me on I'm there. Perry go get down there you go good stuff from Brian Anderson to be on the call for TNT. On the blazers talks he had a he had me I was I was in lockstep with him and anyone Keanu Reeves and Deanna and his whole little liberal in the whole thing you know there is something that he said that really stuck out to me and it seems to continued to be a topic of conversation and I feel like us only that live here and watch this team every single game. Completely disagree with what they are saying and it's a perception by the blazers and we'll talk about that Nazi what is next on the fan. This just durden spray it's guns sanity. Coming up in eleven minutes we'll talk about why somebody just starting crying because of the 49ers. We'll talk about the Seattle Mariners a little bit today can't field runners around for the next baseball season how exciting is that. Thus depends on what's and you are poisonous said that within the weather the last two days get anybody into it I drove bond yesterday no Jolene yesterday well not only are off the air. I drove a museum my windows down. Tag your weird I'm ready I wasn't that warm and. Embrace the heat man it was like sixty degrees yesterday on my drive home yeah we'll talk about that also giving an update on the coyotes in the Portland situation in the NHL the Portland I don't know if I intake to anymore teases I know I know but we'll get the update to the people and and also. Joseph Montana fails to do this and we'll tell you this is a we'll bring audio to it so we got a lot to get to. We are just island Brady Anderson is going to be on the call for T and t.'s blazer hawks game on Monday. And something stuck out to me and and you name something else I think stuck out to use so it's two different things here. The one that sticks out to me and I've heard this and seen this on social media effort time and time again. And occasionally will get people it's the Texas sent and I'm kind of amazed by at this point and I was at that plays a game last night I've been to a few this year I've watched almost every game I think I've missed one. And it amazes me that we continue to hear. How would they need another big. They need front court help the front court the front court the front court look I'm not saying that that's not correct stabbed more talented big man in their defensively would be great saying. Guys I don't know what game when anybody watched last night when I watched that last thing I always get destroyed. It was your backcourt. So I go one point at some point we have got to stop. Not holding the backcourt accountable for their defense of woes statistically. And and only nerds love this stuff. If you go look at defense of paint paint percentage and on defense. The blazer like a top ten team in the NBA right now they don't even meet top five and an executive team it's up to date near interior defense isn't that bad so they're not great dot com he's not the best defender Ed Davis is played here in their Meyers Leonard same thing I get it. But we need to stop just pointing the finger there dancing while that's the only problem. A lot of last night was contributed by the terrible defense by their back cornyn amazes me that people continue to watch this team. And just point to the front court and not mention the backcourt how bad they are defensively it's a big reason a lot of people double. Damon CJ can ever work. But even if you get a a lock down three next on even if you get one of the best defensive centers in the NBA I mean guys are still to be running circles around him it was case in point last night and brand and I know he's one of the best scores in labor and Isiah Thomas goes for 34 I mean he had in the fourth quarter. 1550 points in the fourth quarter he had to a deal the first they scored 43 points in the fourth quarter as a team that is the second most viewed most in the first quarter I think this year AJ aren't quite an accord mr. 43 points I was eleven Detroit six in the four he did it without even make it any threes he was two of eleven from behind the arc so a lot of Havoc if it came in the in the interior because he was beaten Damon CJ. A whoever was guarding him off the dribble and end and that's I think there's just highlights the frustration where blazer fans are proud that. It is true that the interior defense isn't as bad as as the perimeter defense and in the numbers will back that up but what I argue for needing interior help honestly. Part of it is yet you will when you won a seven footer in there they can block some shots occasionally. But a lot of for me to was also an offensive presence that I deciding it would be nice and his team have some balance to have somebody to just throw the ball to on the block. And say go get two points and you just you don't have that right now basically all of your offenses. It is it's a lot of jump shooting at this point so I would like to have that presence down low bit but the defense of slow start and stop the Damian Miller and CJ McCollum. Yeah and McKnight last night there was a double possessions that stick out for me where rosier hit like a fall away shot and banked in like the whole Mota sinner when he banked it in Ehrlich off. Got you let a collective groan. And Willard kind of went like old school. Street ball mentality of all the crowd reacted to him making crazy shot I've got to respond and instead of running a sad. And getting maybe a better shot he came down in a voice in the deep three. Mr. rebound. Like those of the possessions that are so valuable that sometimes get overlooked in games is. Can stop reacting emotionally. Don't care what the audience does and start thinking. How can we work this ball around to get mean or CJ or crab a better shot Aminu was really good last night yeah. And I think there's still times even offensively where they struggle with that arm but defensively to me I just. Because if you think the interior is bad and I'm not saying that it's great by any means. But of using the in tears bad and he realized why you think that. It's because everybody gets around the perimeter defense attacks and neither gets any easier look or they get a dump Bob because a big cast to come up and out. And it's why I still have no problem questioning him this can work long term I'm not the boy riding you want to trade either of them I -- all season that if I read the general manager of the blazers I would dangle CJ McCollum and just see what's he what's the biggest single day of what's available to its own I don't deploys only contract I know but at least be inquiring other teams around the league to save and it will blow a guy like this get now he is values on the gonna continue to go up because I think he's gonna continue to improve as a players so. I'm not willing to give up on yet but. If neither of them improved defensively over the course of the next three years this is always gonna be a problem I mean even if you get a Wesley Matthews had a defender back at the shooting guard. Or bitumen to three or reassign and Al Horford in free agency is still going to be an issue because these guys can't play defense and it's the other things until every last night as one Boston's good team. Well last night they were little banged up in a rally urging crusher but it is so good to meet with glazed and have Evan Turner it's your first game without Evan Turner and also say this that blowing a seventeen point lead is a positive. That would have been such a blazer game two when you lose Evan Turner you lawsuit these things are going against you if find a way to beat the number two seed in the east at home. Instead he blows seventeen point lead and you know we throughout a Twitter poll question today if have you given up on the season. Seventies so 70% of people that have responded have given up on the season and a lot of people have responded with. Losses are good at and that's why I'm out right now with his team that you know we always hear what their won a league peace away to Brian Anderson just said there was a guy on from the outside looking and they're 10 lead piece away from winning. Sure if you wanna see a lot of teams are a lot of teams are one only piece of the million dollar question is how do you land that lead he's gonna jacket again in free agency. If you don't trade gamers CJ you're not gonna get a minute trade. So the house did then come through the draft that's how you're gonna try and find that nice of BP's. Which is why am I'm rooting for Els to pile up the rest of the season yes somebody Texans see Jane Damien needed to. That's a top ten offender at least one power 4% of that's also literally rim protector. Another one T Alexander says I'm with you. Somebody says is it Myers part of that packed court yet he had some moments Leslie testament three in the whole Mota senators and what are you doing dude he's a shooting guard manner ideally we always anymore just waiting for his looks somebody takes intrigue CJ for Aldridge. Go get Wes Mac OS back oh get real low this spring a whole band back together let's just do it. Seventeen point lead when they were seventeen. I looked at I won't with the game with them co workers and even I looked at even he doesn't watch much basketball. I go if they get this to under nine by halftime the blaze will lose this game. And loan mall they did. Bone not surprising at all as the blazers that's this year's blazers team. They can't put teams away they can't and and it nets it's a sign of a basketball team it's not very good hey we got a lot to get to and our number two an update on the coyotes to Portland situation Montana says this about another player. Also the Mariners how good these things they'll be this year but we'll start hour two with the San Francisco 49ers are making a little girl cry. A nine year old will tell you how next on the fan.
