I could see it going either way... If I had to pick one, then I'll I say he'll try like hell to prove he's worth his contract.
I could see him having a huge game tonight... 27+ PTS 8 REBS 8 ASSTS 3 STEALS 2 TO and 1 TECH.


You know that you have a different kind of player on your roster when fans try to predict how many techs he'll get. ::lol:

I don't have a problem with it, I mean I don't mind a guy giving up a Tech FT here and there if that player is playing with that much heart. but as everyone knows jax lets it effect him negatively as well - when he gets all butt-hurt and bltchs to the refs instead of getting back on D.

I also liked the "To-Morrow Never Dies" KC, but I'm not sold on this kid yet. He got hot - everyone gets hot, lets see how effective he is when his FG% comes back to earth... I did like what I saw from him in ways of moving without the ball and getting open plus that third (or second) effort tip-in he had was sweet.

jax is going to be on a mission tonight. he's going to be like a slow moving wrecking ball as he drives into the lane every other possesion. i predict +30 points, +25 shots, +5 assists, +5 TO, and maybe even +5 blocked attempts. and he'll do all that while collecting 6 fouls, with the last one @1:15 left in the 4th after a no call on a drive and he hacks at a portland player out of frustration. final score 98 - 89, portland.

nonetheless, this is going to be an exciting game. so much young talent on both teams!!

What do you guys think of the over for tonights game? 203? The Dubz make everyone play fast. I have won the last 3 overs. Seems like Vegas is catching on and finally raised it. This is the highest it's been this season so far I think.

Actually the first memphis game was an over of 203, and it looked like it would cover after the half. I expect 203.5 to cover, but I would tease and bring it down to 197

Maggette needs to step up tonight. If he has a big game, well win.

Reality: Blazers by 5

If all goes to plan: Warriors by 4

If Maggette takes more than 5 three pointers tonight I will drive to Oakland and beat him with a stick.
