The idea of a 44-minute game experiment came from coaches' concern about length of games, not out of left field.

Mike Tokito

OK, I'll admit this: I'm saying 44-minute games are good idea as a media guy who thinks games are too long. Fans might hate it.

Mike Tokito

Best idea in years: NBA announces it will try out a 44-minute game in Sunday's Brooklyn-Boston preseason game.

Mea culpa: Jones fracture is named for an English doctor, not Chipper, which I embarrassingly wrote. I'll be punished accordingly.

Pac-12 officiating… how good/bad is it? and why are Stanford and Oregon being singled out as the biggest complainers? oregonlive.com/sports/oregoni…

Erik Gundersen

NBA says BOS-BKN 44-min game on Oct. 19 will be to "examine the flow of a shorter game compared to the standard 48 min game."

Erik Gundersen

Meyers Leonard told me prior to the game his neck injury is a "day-to-day" thing. Blazers don't play again until Friday.

Meyers Leonard

Thoughts and prayers out to a great coach and mentor of mine at Illinois, Wayne McClain. He's battling serious illness in the hospital.

Mike Tokito

Doc Rivers on CJ McCollum: "He's going to be a good player in the league for a long time."

Erik Gundersen

"He's going to be a good player in the league for a longtime." -- Doc Rivers on CJ McCollum.

Mike Tokito

So what's it feel like, Wesley Matthews, to shot 6 for 7 on threes? "It felt like a hula hoop tonight."

Mike Tokito

Convo w/Matthews re. going 6 for 7 on 3s. Him: Who went 6 for 7? Me: You. Him: I went 6 for 7? I didn’t know I went 6 for 7.

Meyers Leonard

Great win tonight. No worries for me. Just a minor thing. I'll be back! Would've done anything to be out there tonight! #RipCity

Mike Tokito

LaMarcus Aldridge joked that he's glad "Shaqtin a fool" isn't on yet, because his stepping in before inbounding ball would've been on it.

Blazers bench vs. Clippers bench to close this one out. Clippers down by 4 with 6:19 left. Barton FT coming after a tough and-1.

Matthews should be done at 24 minutes. Finishes with 22 points, 6 for 7 on threes. What a game.
