Anybody else think wily ol' Flip has been reluctant to set a coaching timetable because he's just waiting for Mac to become available?

By the way, hope it's a foregone conclusion that Terry Stotts isn't in the coaching pool for the #Twolves. PDX has to exercise that option.

Darren Wolfson

OK, maybe I was wrong about the #Twolves needing the 13th pick more than a quick playoff exit. What a bleepin' opening weekend!

Jerry Zgoda

It's a final: Blazers win 122-120 in OT in Houston

Jerry Zgoda

If there's justice, this Rockets-Blazers will go to a 2nd OT

Jerry Zgoda

Anybody want to bet against Damian Lillard?

Jerry Zgoda

Blazers and Rockets headed to OT tied at 106. LaMarcus Aldridge has 43 & 17, those are Kevin Love numbers

Jerry Zgoda

Last playoff game of the weekend -- Rockets 100, Blazers 99 w/ 1:30 left on TNT -- has been the best so far.

Jerry Zgoda

After nearly 2 days of NBA playoffs so far...I should have taken my predictions & gone George Costanza on 'em. I'd be feeling more confident

Darren Wolfson

There can't be a dry eye at Fenway. Kudos @JCarterBoston and the Red Sox for an amazing pregame ceremony.

Re: Fuld to Twins -- One of the #MNTwins officials was nice enough to text immediately back. Yes, narrative changed w/ Bartlett retiring.

Darren Wolfson

Fuld is definitely coming to the #MNTwins. @Ken_Rosenthal had 1st. Curious to find out what changed. Two team officials poo-pooed for days.
