The rockets that you're talking about like San Antonio and Dallas. -- we got one here too. Right here go figure right down the street here's Mike Garrett blazers TV can be you'd be extra jacked for this one buyer. There are no not try to try to maintain composure and but yeah I mean it's there's more anticipation certainly the system. Than other games in the you know knowing what's on the line as to you know have the potential of closing it out person going back used and so. Let's hope they can close the -- and the thing. Does it mean. If the blazers get out of first round because you know I mean look it's not like they can't go to a game seven and -- in Houston because they absolutely cans of the series not over him lose this game but. He -- tonight. And move on to the next round after several. First round announce its been awhile mean I think it means a lot what is what do you think it means to the franchise to just just get over that. Well and I think -- it's always you know more special when something happens when -- on expect it'll be I mean you think back. The last time they played Houston in the playoffs you know they have that 54 when he's in when that really came out of -- but it might be okay you lose vote in an effort these forward seat in and has this. It has there's innocents attached to it because of the fact that it wasn't predicted and this year has a little bit of that because. You know -- media day nick Khartoum saying you know there's no reason while we could be one of the top five teams in the west people -- And and he was kind of mocked -- for so you don't. Are saying -- they were the only guys truly believe that kind of cliche but that it's true and so I think the fact that. You know like Vegas adamant 38 wins over under and nickel -- to meet those kind of things don't happen it's when you're battling expectations when you're in Indiana. Or even to some degree OK even -- looks at the gonna survive. Those of the times and you get those first round it's it's it's more relief than anything else this is different and I care what happens in the second round and certainly take on San Antonio eighteen team that Olympic success in recent years. You know you -- do well in the second round but as you said it says it is extra meaningful to get out of the first round because it has been law. It just feels like a big game for the franchise. Him regardless of what happened in game seven and know that you have that there are just. This feels like one of those moments that if things go Portland's wait tonight we're talking about this maybe even a couple of days ago. That you're gonna look back and decked out remember remember that game remember that moment is this team hopefully builds towards something bigger better. I agree and you know there are when I think packet. You know there's a few games I remember in the last I mean I remember a lot of what -- -- to my mind and that could be one of those you know. And pull up game that you look back on and just because of the buzz going around the city and around the state really in the region and it is that we again because of the magic that they act -- -- early in the season and then -- and if you come in next year in -- predicted would be. Third or fourth in the west which is probably realistic we're still -- they'll be predicted to be some more for like six somewhere -- there. And then you make it different this that this is these kind of things don't come along may come along every. Every different set of player every you know little error and if this is the little or Aldridge to Matthews. Era in -- well but he hasn't been here -- then. I think you have one of these times and -- kids. To get over the top accompanist invited that a second ago to get over the hump of getting -- first -- the certainly. Could be a meaningful and memorable night. Coming off his really only bad game in the series do you expect Portland defeat the market's early and often in this one. Yeah but you know it's it was and just -- Houston did. You know little different strategy in -- the trucks are gonna go we're watching tape of what they did do and it wasn't just take you know but Howard on him and leave them and they'll do that again -- -- power to cast -- shuffle. But they've they garnered him with power and -- fast enough and big enough to cause him problems and then he went Howard wasn't on him. You know he was coming out of immediate double team which which we hadn't seen you know they were -- Terrence Jones. Play Albert straight out and one on one and the market's obviously. Got a better -- 46 and 43 Indians want to. Sold I would expect to do the same thing and and if not -- -- on him and are securely -- start on the you know when they -- power to imminent even Jones when it's been in the game. But the market knows that you know he is the face and he has been here the longest he was the only guy that. All collapsed and he's he's like the series he's gonna try to get himself more involvement like we saw on game one go inside. Drop the shall reduce of those -- -- in game one the biggest thing is he's got to stay out of foul trouble defensively early in the game that's what turned. You know Portland absorbs Houston's opening punch. In games five and that was one thing we -- was -- but the one thing that crippled and and really changed everything is when he picked up the second. Mike Barrett blazers TV here on the -- -- funny you mention that I just thinking in my head it's like. What if the rockets had been guarding LaMarcus Aldridge this way the whole series what you know will then where would it be. Yeah I mean I I you know two -- there's things change so much between every game and you can go back and a German lenders. And it hadn't really done anything and all of a sudden because Beverly had a fever and get the opportunity -- those trading in three to -- factories so. Then -- then there's been a while recently and playing a veritable wealth. -- it didn't happen happen where Beverly was. Now Beverly help pieces that mean -- that it goes game to game all the different changes and adjustments so. Military not a good coach and he'll try to answer was some moves of his own so. Yeah I mean I understand with the pending in the way they are now. Especially the fact that it makers just that's one that's right right six you don't make -- adjustment -- for 43 Afghan. And all of a sudden you're down two that's you know Kevin McHale with that right rightfully so. -- big mistake what is what is Terry Stotts preaching most here what's the key for him. As they -- this one. You know Terry is he's very good. Perspective and every time like -- back to that pregame interview and we start talking and you know you fight and mentioned tomorrow we're coming up where the two became because you know as he stops and there's now it's it's the moment it's this one game there's this time you can just say that I mean I think he really believes and and the guys. Believe those same things so I think for. Her coach I mean it's more of the mental side of -- -- and those are important but tonight news. You don't don't get to Jack play within yourself don't you know lose composure earlier -- WA little little things and he's better -- act passed up some that's he's he's hands off with he trusts guys that's what I like him. But I think tonight -- not applicable to your motivational speech or you'll you won't do anything different reported that way because we all expect. A different approach or a fiery speech I don't think Terry does that I think he puts it on his players and gives them the trust that you know they're going to be. He tells -- rebound. Yeah you know the funny thing is that they've actually. That averaged more rebounds in the series -- the offensive rebounds and and Houston is not a great offensive rebounding team. They have been in this series and the crazy -- -- a couple of numbers that are rebounding part of the offensively. And the fact that you can keep saying Portland killing it's from the office last. What exactly the reverse -- -- -- they have gotten some of those especially in games one and two and they want and LaMarcus. You know we remembered gravest offensive rebound -- put them back can't. The blocked shots as the other thing and that's because Houston. Scores in the paint so much of what they average about five blocks game average over candidates series. -- a franchise record fourteen games aren't so there'd been some wacky things and see happening in the playoffs and you start forgetting what happened in the regular season and it is almost like a little beaten up it's only when it comes to. But numbers together and trends. You kind of look back and forget all the numbers they -- pretty. Is. The -- James Harden has played is that more on him just not making shots or how much credit do you give. To the trailblazers defensive plan against him. I get electrical Wesley and and game one I mean Portland started off. Steady diet of taken apart down low and going to Matthews in the post that we haven't seen a lot since then. But that I give that atomic I mean Wesley up in him the whole way up -- -- for. And in some you know some ways that that Tony Allen has done -- Kevin Durant even rank numbers last night. You know when you when you've got a guy inside your service your forties that it is -- -- and I don't know whether or not cardinal ever given me what the credits analysis series is over but he's made it. Any need to work defensively Wesley had a huge game in game. You know got himself -- -- -- in the third quarter of that game and so part of it is he's missed some open shots but the other part of it is you know. There and it -- the three point line forget that and I know we can actually wearing normally shoot the US threes. But part of the transition guy and appoint the pink and what she won't -- an -- -- him option. I think he's got the marquee of the few times gotten out of rhythm and that's what we've seen is shooting percentage down. -- All right keep prices in check tonight there you'll see on socket ball OK -- right rear wheel well were we talking about a victory in the conclusion of series. Yes sir thank you have a good car that is the great Mike -- the Playboy himself. From blazers television. And -- -- will bulls beyond talk involved tonight after the game full post game coverage. Right after the game on Comcast sports. It's -- that when the brought up about the blocked shot they are you -- you -- a game and a lot of the -- on the Twin Towers. We'll prosecute job that if the did this thing when you see him but Howard's. Got the ball rejected a couple times -- -- into the room as well. He has all right more on the series coming up but up next we switch gears to college football -- part two of the matrix is standing by and we will talk about just how significant. The advantages to the SEC if at all. If they play an eight game conference schedule and won't switch to a nine some college football next on 1080 the fan. It's time for people in sports.

But I wouldn't come from we're down 32 we need to win this game for us more motivation than anything. -- the one thing loss and I thought the end reliable headline this. Ridiculous it was -- there was a story that players don't care about that crap that he has done like they're gonna let that stuff bothers you some guys might think Kevin Durant doesn't care. He had a huge game. And you know looks like Oklahoma City is poised to win the series now back at home for game seven and -- that's going to be without Zach Randolph.
