Trevor Ariza 22 Points Full Highlights (3/10/2020)

I’m trying to figure out why Trevor Ariza is so much better in Portland than he was in Sacramento. I think I may have discussed this quandary before, so forgive me for rehashing it, but it really is an interesting mystery to me. Both teams are aimlessly locked in a battle for the eighth seed…

Mario Hezonja 16 Points Full Highlights (3/7/2020)

What a time to be alive if you’re a Croatian basketball fan. First, Dragan Bender resurrects his career in Golden State (okay, “resurrects” is too strong a term, but he’s definitely getting minutes that he wasn’t getting in Milwaukee). Second, Dario Saric scores 16 and 24 points in consecutive games for the Suns. Third, Luka…

Will Barton 22 Points Full Highlights (3/7/2020)

My last Will Barton video was over a month ago, for his performance on January 31st where he dropped in 24/8 against my beloved Buckos. At that point in the season, I was getting somewhat tired of making videos for Will Barton, as he is the master of accumulating enough stats to deserve a highlight…

Gary Trent 24 Points Full Highlights (3/2/2020)

Terry Stotts is looking like a BIG dumb-dumb for not realizing what he had in Gary Trent early in the season. This guy is looking like a perfectly competent scorer at the NBA level and a decent complement to Damian Lillard (anybody can be a decent complement to him as long as you can catch…

Gary Trent 20 Points Full Highlights (2/27/2020)

Gary Trent: adequate Rodney Hood replacement? Absolutely! Gary Trent: adequate Jusuf Nurkic replacement? Definitely not. Gary Trent: adequate Damian Lillard replacement: No. Gary Trent: adequate Mike & Mike replacement (the ‘Zers former commentary duo)? Throw him in the booth and find out. As you can see, Gary Trent is doing a fine job in the…

Trevor Ariza 17 Points Full Highlights (2/25/2020)

Man, just look at that genius, subliminal logo placement in the thumbnail. That big glowing Nike logo is so subliminal that it transcends subliminality and becomes glaringly obvious instead. Sometimes, subtlety is better discarded in favor of boldness. That’s what I’m doing right now. Boldly putting the Nike logo next to Trevor Ariza’s head in…

Anfernee Simons 22 Points/6 Threes Full Highlights (2/12/2020)

Trailblazers fans were kind of hoping, after Anfernee Simons’ monster game to end the season last year, that he would step in and be the third guard after Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, the guy who could come in off the bench and reliably replace some of the midget chuck bros production by being a…

Wenyen Gabriel 12 Points Full Highlights (2/11/2020)

Perhaps the most notable thing to happen in Wenyen Gabriel’s career up to this point is when Adrian Wajonoosker announced that he (Gabriel) had been traded from the Kings to the Blazers as part of the Bazemore/Ariza swap. The tweet itself wasn’t that notable except it identified Gabriel as “Wendell Gabriel”. Ouch. The disrespect stings,…

Gary Trent 22 Points Full Highlights (2/9/2020)

I may have underestimated Gary Trent when I repeatedly compared him to Tony Snell. One commentators suggestion of a different comparison, Wes Matthews, might be more appropriate at this point. The defense, the three-pointers (no bow-and-arrow celebration though), the low usage which combines nicely with the Chuck Bros of Lillard and McCollum…it matches up way…

Trevor Ariza 21 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (2/9/2020)

Trevor Ariza has had way more good games for the Blazers in his short stint there than he ever did for the Kings earlier this season. Just to remind you, his season-high as a King was eighteen points. In nine games with the Blazers, he’s scored more than that three different times. And now I’m…
