Mavs-Blazers Game 6 Preview: What Time Does Game 7 Tip?

Mavs-Blazers Playoffs.jpg
The Mavericks are 0-4 in Portland's Rose Garden this season. All-time they are 18-46 in Portland, including 1-8 in the playoffs. They lost Games 3 and 4 of this first-round series. Since 2006 they are a putrid 2-17 in road playoff games.

The Blazers, meanwhile, have won 12 of their last 13 at home.

What I'm trying to say is ... see y'all Saturday night for Game 7.

Tyson Chandler was great in Game 5 and Dirk Nowitzki has been consistent all series, and I think the Mavs' zone defense will again befuddle Portland's iffy outside shooting. But the Mavs haven't won a statement game as underdogs since I don't remember when.

This season they've coughed up big leads at home and they've lost big games to playoff teams on the road.

From the start of the playoffs I've maintained that the Mavs will beat the Blazers in 7 and then lose to the Lakers in the second round.

Unfortunately, part of that equation is a loss tonight in Portland.

I think the Mavericks lose in 5. By the way go to Texashuntingrepublic.com It's a bad ass website with some kick ass people to talk hunting, fishing, and outdoors.

Richie, you must be doing something right, look at all the haters.

Now onto the Mavericks. Game 6 is it, no need for 7. Hopefully The Hornets can win and give the Mavs 3 days rest.

I have meetings all morning and finally get over here..and I missed RW commenting this morning...dang worky work..not much to add other than that..don't want to be called out by Jamal. I can see RW going to Scruffygeists workplace in my head..first he asks for three phone books to put in the chair..(that's all I got, got to get back to the Redshoe's game)

Why didnt you do a story on the douchebag who got in the way and snatched the foul ball from Adrian Beltre and basically ruined the inning for the Rangers? Since you decided to ignore it I am starting to wonder if it was that stepson you talked about raising. Seems like something you would teach him to do since you seem to hate the Rangers since they fled the Titanic.

Still nothing on the Rangers. Are you ever going to quit being butthurt about them leaving the Fail for less money? They won last night thanks to Mitch Moreland and the same kid from last week caught a the ball in virtually the same spot as last time. I guess you would rather report on draft that no one will be listening to on the FAIL.

Time is "TBA", which you should have known, being a sports 'writer' and 'broadcaster' and all. Both terms used very loosely.

In any event, you midget, where are you watching the game Saturday? After all, you did say that you'd see us Saturday night for game 7. I want to sit behind you and flick your ear all night to see if I can get you to cry.

You said this series was over last week, hack.

And the parts about Brandon Roy and Rick Carlisle were very compelling.

Right there with ya brother..Hoping he picks the Lakeshow in 7..then I'll put everything on Mavs in 5...fool proof I tells ya..

Wish TRDP1 or Thong and Cheese would throwout a SFBL post, I know y'all are starting to fear the Broken shoulders..since the retrofitting of the rotation and lineup...I am now closer to first place than I am to last (something the Fail wishes it could say about itself). Scruffygeist is still struggling.

Anyone over 18 that brings a glove to the stadium should be sitting in the special olympics group sales section. It looks like the dude's buddy has spent a few too many nights in the all you can eat section. What a clueless pair!

I predicted the Rangers to win the AL West last year. This year I don't think they will. If you're reading more into it than that, perhaps you have an agenda?

Rangers? You serious? Pretty sure the NFL Draft and Mavs' playoff games trump April baseball. Remember, I was told that April baseball is so meaningless that players can just miss games and it's no biggie.

meanwhile, greggo STILL have "voice issues".

Sorry, they don't let "Guest"s in the courtside seats reserved for credentialed journalists. Come out to a 105.3 The Fan appearance, though. Introduce yourself. Kinda kinky, but if you really wanna touch me you can. Anything for my fans.

Hey, you're over here now? Cool. Never been stalked quite so much by a guy who claims to hate me. Kinda creepy. Like a really mean, obsessed shadow.What I said last week was that yes, the series over. I still think it is. Still think the Mavs will win in 7.Hey I got an idea. Give a link to your professional blog so I can comment on your stuff every day too. Cool?

I've had two days not in last this week. Small steps. If Uggla, Crawford, and Hunter all hit like they're capable of, my lineup will be formidable.

Funny, I quit the Star-Telegram for the Observer, divorced my ex-wife, never worked for the Morning News and got Greggo hired by The Fan. Other than that ... spot on! Well done.

Don't you have to water your hair or rob some more content from ESPN insider about the draft before your little "radio show" ?

No one said that. They said it was understandable for a player to miss one game to witness the birth of his child.

Journalist? Is that what you are? Somebody who starts shit needlessly but won't back up his point when actual facts come out is now called a journalist? Consider me a journalist then, you asshole midget.

Again, I don't listen to your station. Therefore, I don't know where your remotes are. Post it on here next time you're in Fort Worth, I'll be sure to introduce myself. I'll be the guy taller than you (hard to narrow that down, I know).

Quit kidding yourself, I'm not a fan of yours. Keep thinking delusional thoughts though.

Dude if you can't take the ripping, don't say dumb things like the series is over after two games. If you say a series is over after two games, and the Mavs end up winning in seven, then no, you were not right.

you're right, you are not a troll, but if thats all youve got, just save us beating of reading a lame post. I mean who cant say Jesus fucking and troll. At least some people come up with interesting off topic posts to read, its all a bit. Hell these comments here are better than any comments on local media websites or CNN ESPN and such.

I should add- if this stuff was being directed at my worst enemy I'd find it tiresome.

Oh yeah if it was not for you and your great sports brain Greggo would be selling copiers at Staples.

It couldn't be that Greggo got hired on talent, no, it was all because of Richie. Come on, give the guy some credit, you may have helped him get an interview but he got the job on his own merit.
