    Zach was playing really well defensively. And - much like the National Championship - received two BS foul calls in the first half that have loomed large for his PT in the second half.

    As he continues to get stronger he is going to be a force in this league.

    Zcollins has a attitude that can rub people wrong. If he can limit fouls, he will be a star soon

    2 of them in the first half were completely bs though. 2 were legit and 1 was 50/50.

    He's got to put in the time and build up a reputation before he'll start getting the benefit of the doubt.

    I love how McCollum (game MVP, maybe series) in the on court interview after the game, when questioned about being doubted and his source of motivation, immediately says "I'm a product of Lehigh University, It's about showing up every night and keeping the door open for the next mid-major."

    Strange series. Huge emotional lift for Portland winning game 3 in 4 OTs and taking the lead in the series. I figured they would go up 3-1 and Denver would be done. Nuggets bounce back to win Game 4 in Portland and get a blowout in Game 5 to go up 3-2. Then I figured Portland was done. So...shows how little I know. Congrats to the Blazers. Haven't been to the conference finals in forever! Big underdogs against GS but Durant is going to be out for most of that series. We'll see. And all of this without the injured Nurkic, who is certainly a better starting C than Kantner.

    The charge right after the BS no call on the other end... That went beyond having a rep or not... that was just bad officiating

    Generally am pretty bemused by JVG and Jackson but their constant praise of Collins these last few games has been nice. I really enjoy the flow of the Blazers game. Lillard and CJ are both gunners but no one ever seems stagnant or useless out there for them.

    I don't really think the Westbrook/Sabonis comparison on the last page of this thread is very similar at all to be honest. Donovan's offense at the NBA level is generally pretty miserable to watch, and he seemingly had zero idea what DS even did well. He had like 3x as many three point attempts his rookie season as he did in his two Pacers years combined.

    From Oregon Live today:

    The Trail Blazers have exercised team options on Zach Collins and Anfernee Simons, potentially keeping the burgeoning young players in Portland through at least the 2020-21 season.
    Collins, who is entering his third NBA season, has played in 143 games during his first two seasons, averaging 5.6 points and 3.8 rebounds. He battled foul trouble and inconsistency for much of his second season, but blossomed during the Blazers’ surprising run to the Western Conference finals.

    In his final 10 postseason games, Collins averaged 8.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 blocks, emerging as an important frontcourt presence as the Blazers played without injured center Jusuf Nurkic. Collins punctuated his solid play with memorable performances in Games 6 and 7 of the Western Conference semifinals, when he recorded 21 points, 10 rebounds and nine blocks to help the Blazers narrowly defeat the Denver Nuggets.

    Story from Yahoo sports

    Zach Collins, 30 pounds heavier, is stronger and has a medal to prove it

    Collins started at power forward Tuesday against Denver and played the most of any Trail Blazer. He went 23:54, hit five of 12 shots, scored 10 points while collecting six rebounds. He said his injured left middle finger didn't hurt, after it kept him out of practice for a few days.

    "Offensively, it was our first preseason game and there are some kinks we've got to work out," Collins said. "There are some details on offense we've got to get worked out. But I was really happy. I was encouraged."

    Look at Zach's shoulders and arms in that oregonlive photo. he has really filed out from when he was an 18 yo frosh at GU.

    Hope he is back in action soon.
