    Will Orlando be there tonight, or is he already in Ft Wayne? If he won't be, it is kind of bad timing with Lance out tonight.

    Copeland will probably get minutes tonight with Danny starting, shouldn't he?

    I actually wonder if we will see a little D.Sloan tonight. POR's backcourt is normally small when Wes Matthews is out of the game (Mo Williams and CJ Mccolum are both smaller guards)

    Probably not, likely Rasual Butler. Though I hope we do see him

    I sense another "We must Re-sign Lance no matter the cost cuz we have seen what not having Lance on this Team does to the offense" Post-Game thread being created tonight.
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Watson will get 20+ minutes tonight. I doubt we see much of Sloan or Copeland. Butler will get no more than 12 minutes.

    I am predicting Paul George to score a season high tonight.

    Good opportunity for Danny to step up in Lance's absence.

    Yup, because a couple non-consecutive games is super representative of what would happen.

    Losing any Starter to injury would impact this team regardless. I do not doubt that the offense runs much better with Lance in the lineup.....I want to re-sign Lance.....but I am not fond of the moves that would have to be made to accomodate re-signing him ( hence why I am considering the alternatives if re-signing Lance is not an option ).

    I think Danny is close to being back in game shape, he will play well tonight in starters role.

    Rasual Butler.
    Copeland is seen as a power forward here. If West or Scola were out, then maybe.

    I don't know if true, but on the Pacers Game-Preview (http://www.nba.com/pacers/preview-pa...blazers-140207) they write the following line: The Blazers will be without sixth man Mo Williams, who left the team for family reasons. Williams averages 9.1 points and 4.6 assists in 24.2 minutes. Blazers head coach Terry Stotts said that former Pacers player Earl Watson will fill in for Williams at backup point guard.

    So maybe Vogel didn't get the news?! So maybe he changes the lineup when Mo WIlliams is out tonight. Let's see

    Obviously we need Granger to do his part, but the most important thing to me is making sure George Hill steps it up/has an aggressive approach on the offensive end tonight. I want GH penetrating and driving to the hoop tonight like we all know he's capable of doing.

    Over under Danny shooting percentage tonight 35%? I hope I'm wrong, but I'm thinking 4-14-ish, so under is my wager. 20+ chucks might be on tap!

    With no replay available tonight, I will likely be furtively following this game thread from work. Thank you all in advance for the misleading reactions to our horrible team.

    You are right. Mo Williams is out for family reasons according to Comcast SportsNet reports.
    Tonight, all flags must burn, in place of steeples.
    Autonomy must return into the hands of the people.

    CJ Watson - 20 points on 6/10 shooting!

    How good is Aldridge with his fade away shot really? Sometimes he scores some ridiculously hard baskets with that move.

    Rumors have been swarming that we will trade Granger? What is Heather Cox talking about? I haven't heard a single legit rumor.

    Without Lance, the Pacers really have a talent deficit.
