The Blazers have allowed just 184 points in two games against the Clippers and Warriors. Both games played without Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. Add their scoring punch to that defensive effort and this team will rack up some wins. Unfortunately, McCollum will be out for a bit. – 12:52 AM

I appreciate grit. The Blazers don’t have the talent right now but they have played hard tonight at GSW. I don’t feel like I’m seeing a lot of lazy possessions. Play like this when Lillard returns and next week could see them win 3 of 4. – 12:09 AM

Curry’s first half:13 points, 4 3-pointers. 12 away from the record
Warriors: 34pct FG, 24pct 3p
Among ugliest halves of basketball they’ve played this season, but they have a 47-45 lead over the Blazers, who are without Dame/CJ – 11:19 PM

Correct me if I’m wrong, but nobody reported that Dame wants a trade yesterday, right? There was definitely speculation, but the reporting was on him wanting an extension and Ben Simmons.
So… today’s kind of a strange day to come out so firmly and say “I don’t want a trade.” – 4:21 PM

At Trailblazers shootaround today Damian Lillard strongly addressed the rumors and noise:
“I’m not asking for a trade.”
“My intentions are to be in Portland and to figure it out.”
He added he’s in the office w/ Chauncey everyday trying to find solutions, not planning an exit. – 3:44 PM

More on this storyline

San Antonio’s efforts to crash the trade hunt for Simmons have been well-chronicled, but Philadelphia remains intent on holding out for Portland’s Damian Lillard or another proven All-Star in a Simmons swap. While the Spurs clearly don’t have one, it’s nonetheless tantalizing to picture Simmons landing in the Alamo City so Popovich and Chip Engelland, San Antonio’s renowned shooting coach, can lead the cause to rehabilitate the wayward Simmons’ game. -via marcstein.substack.com / December 9, 2021
