I'm pretty sure he was the PG.Nate McMillan decided to start Jamal Crawford at point guard, moving veteran Raymond Felton to the bench. Both players were acquired by the Blazers over the offseason and have struggled at times, but Crawford had been outplaying Felton in recent weeks.
Ellis has been tried as a point guard. For whatever reason, someone that knows more about basketball than either one of us decided he would be better suited playing the 2. He has thrived more in that role, so I think that is what people generally consider his role to be. Same with Jamal Crawford. The only reason he is playing point guard right now is because Ray Felton has been such an abomination.
I actually think that Crawford is playing PG in Portland because that system doesn't really need a point guard to begging with.
Regarding Monta, just like DC Curry can't play the two so they have to play Monta at the 2 but neither Curry or Monta are "pure point guards".

boston has closed within 8 of OKC after the pummeling they were getting in the first half.
Can anybody explain what is going on in Washington? From what I've seen, nick young and Jordan Crawford are the exact same player. Selfish guys that only care about scoring. Tonight Young was 6-23. You have a team oriented guy, Shelvin Mack, that can't get off the bench
BOOO 76ers took the lead, come on Rockets
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
By the way, the Hornets won in Cleveland.
Chris Kaman: 21 points (10/25 shooting, though), 13 boards and 3 dimes. 1 steal and 2 blocks as well.
Jarret Jack: 16 points (5/11 shooting), 7 boards and 3 dimes.
Greivis Vasquez: 13 points (5/11 shooting), 2 boards, 5 dimes and a 1 steal.
Marco Belinelli: 19 points (8/13 shooting), 3 boards and 1 dime.
Gustavo Ayon: 9 points (4/7 shooting), 17 (!!) boards, 4 dimes, 2 steals and 1 block.
Vasquez and Kaman combined for 10 turnovers (6 and 4 respectively) but other than that, they were great for one more game.
So, a tip of the hat to them. They've had a great road trip despite missing two key players. Frankly, they've played better without them.
Isaiah Thomas has been the best pg on the Kings roster all year great draft pick getting him so late the last pick. I am so glad he got a shot in the NBA he deserved it and should be in the rising stars game he has been very good.
The more I see Marshon Brooks the more I love him, the dudes a flat out scorer
kevin durant is too freaking good. seriously. how the hell does a 6'10" guy have that smooth of a crossover?
