— Trail Blazers (@trailblazers) December 3, 2013
First of all, last night’s game was terrific. Brad Rowland of FanSided wrote a great review. In the fourth quarter, every time the Trail Blazers held a slight cushion, Paul George brought the Pacers back within striking distance. The Blazers won, but not without sweating out every three ball launched by George.
After last night’s dramatics, is it possible we will see an Indiana-Portland match up in the NBA Finals? Sound off on what you think in the comments below, and here are a few things to consider:
1. Portland and Indiana fans will not leave in the fourth quarter. Sorry Miami fans, but that was not cool.
2. The will to win is second to none between the two teams. I have mad respect for Hibbert talking about the NBA Finals, goals push you to work harder.
3. Think about the intensity of both fan bases. The Trail Blazers have not won a championship since 1977, and the Pacers have never won an NBA title. The arenas will be pressure packed, and home court advantage will be a coveted treasure.
Although my heart lies with New York basketball, a Pacers-Blazers final would be tremendous.
