    What Starting Lineup Should Portland Use Against Phoenix?
    Mills/Roy/Matthews/Aldridge/Camby (40)
     48%
    Roy/Matthews/Batum/Aldridge/Camby (39)
     47%
    Johnson/Roy/Matthews/Aldridge/Camby (4)
     5%



    Just released this afternoon-

     Brian Cook of the Los Angeles Clippers has been suspended two games without pay for his Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two against Joel Przybilla of the Portland Trail Blazers, and
    Andre Miller
    of the Trail Blazers has been suspended one game without pay for making excessive and unnecessary contact with Blake Griffin of the Clippers, it was announced today by Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President Basketball Operations. Upon postgame video review by the league office, Miller was assessed a Flagrant Foul, Penalty Two for his actions.

    CONTINUE READING>>>

    With that said, someone's got to step up in his absence in the starting lineup. Will it be Patty Mills taking over as the traditional point guard or will Portland go big and roll with Roy and Wesley in the backcourt and inserting Batum back into the starting lineup as the small forward. Remember, we are playing against the Phoenix Suns and they have tow lightning quick, jitterbug point guards in Dragic and Nash, so it may be difficult for a player like Roy to stick in front of them if he's playing the point guard.

    In my opinion, we have 3 realistic lineups we could roll with-
    PG Mills SG Roy SF Matthews PF Aldridge C Camby
    PG Roy SG Matthews SF Batum PF Aldridge C Camby
    PG Johnson SG Roy SF Matthews PF Aldridge C Camby

    What should it be?

    Sucks for Miller in the fact he had that amazing streak going on, but I voted Patty, he earned it and needs it.

    Did that happen in the first half? I only saw the second half and don't know what they are talking about. I'm downloading the game right now so I guess I should look out for that play. Is it worse than Devin Harris' flagrant 2 on Blake?

    And Patty or Armon should start at pg, NOT BRANDON! He's too easy to guard right now. Since Mills has been playing well lately, I think he should start.

    I think he still keeps his streak, but if he doesn't it would be messed up.

    I voted Patty because we still need Nico's dominance in the second unit. Patty has worked hard and deserves the chance to start. Still sucks for Dre though, that was a crazy streak.

    First off...WHAT!!!! I don't rememeber Dre doing anyting warranting a suspension....I guess thats just one more thing the league is doing to stop us from winning. I say we start either Patty or Armon. Roy will definately play some point, but to start Roy at the point and bring Batum from the bench would not leave much engery/offense on the bench. I'd say Nash is gonna have a career night. Thisis a chance for patty to show us some D. I think he will be starting the game.

    I vote Batum, he rocked it last night.  Save Patty for when we need a spark off the bench...which could be sooner than later seeing as how we are battling the Suns.

    Start Patty Mills!
    Andre just proved that he puts his teamates before his win streak.
    He didn't let P-Town go out like no chumps, and proceeded to deck the Clippers toughest dude.
    Same with Rudy smackin' that pudgy Smith guy, I like seeing our guards play more aggressive, be it a little too rough, but aggressive none the less.

    I happened to have the game on my tivo, and just watched it again.  Blake Griffin pushes Andre on 2 separate plays, around 7:40, in the 4th quarter.  So, after that, Andre just barrels in to Griffin, and he falls on the ground!  I didn't notice it when I first watched it, since the refs didn't notice it, either.  You can see Andre look around, just waiting to be called for the flagrant!  BG deserved to be knocked on his ass!!  I'm SO SAD that Dre is getting suspended, since it will mess up his 600+ game streak!!  PATTY MILLS ALL THE WAY!!!

    I can have an hd version up tomorrow, but by then no one will want it. Plus I want to see what Blake Griffin did to deserve that as I'm sure Dre didn't just do that without any reason at all. It sucks I think if Andre wouldn't have said he did it on purpose after the game, maybe he wouldn't have been suspended.

    There were two thing Griffin did.  If you check out the link I posted, scroll down to the bottom of the page, and the video shows what happened.  It's not very big, or clear, but it points them out.

    ok so it sucks for miller's streak but that foul was so awesome. blake griffen is nothing but a cheating cheap shotting douche and he got a great taste of pay back. comparing him to malone is perfect because malone was a dirty douchehole too. after watching that replay id like to say that miller has gone from top 8favorite player on the team sky rocketing to number 3 behind only the thrylla and patt stacks. oh and my man patty should start and sink no less than 8 3's in nash's alien face and rack up no less than 10dimes to my man lamarcus. I'd also like to see patty cakes and rudy play together, i bet we'd see glimpses of the old spanish armada.

    KG?? He won't do anything unless it's a tiny guard. Patty Mills better look out for KG.

    And it is unfortunate that Dre will end his streak and get the suspension, but I think he taught that rook a big lesson. Don't ever push Dre!! Especially not two times in a row! The flagrant is almost worth it when you see the two previous possessions. ha ha

    Man he leveled him.

    OK, Technical foul on Stu Jackson and all the idiots involved in this decision. I have said it before and I will say it again, who the hell does the NBA think Blake Dumba!# Griffin is. This guy is 20 games into his NBA career and is being treated better then Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant combined. You are going to tell me your going to eject a veteran player like Miller for something that a Rookie deserved. Man this is seriously one of those things that makes me question my support for the NBA. Come on this crap wouldn't even of been questioned 20 years ago. Now that I am done complaining, I am going to say Mills. I love AJ but he has been pretty careless with the ball and the last thing we need is turnovers. This better not mess up Miller's game streak, that would be a Jackwagon of a move on the NBA's part.

    Well there's a logical reasoning Griffin gets the calls.  The Clippers are worthless.  Get Laker fans, the biggest franchise in the league, involved with the Clippers... it's even more money!  But he's not as overrated as Durant... yet..

    I agree after watching it again I think it should only have been a flagrant one. It was just a shove, not a punch or anything like that. And it wasn't excessive because look how much bigger Blake is than Andre, he has to use extra force just to get his attention! ha ha

    Especially if you remember when Amar'e took a swing and missed Lamarcus last year (which the refs also missed), that is supposed to be a suspension according to the rules, and yet he wasn't even fined not to mention suspended. And that was an obvious swing. But maybe like I said earlier, if Dre didn't admit to doing it on purpose, he might not have been suspended.

    Patty Mills should without a doubt get his first career start. Channel One is hosting Andrew Bogut and the Bucks get riped up by Miami tonight, not good for Andrew Bogut's reputation they are trying so hard to boost. Channel One should pick their games more wisely (playing the games the bucks win + the games Patrick Mills gets game time in) that would make much better television.

    Batum................
    I'm very much intriqued to see Roy at the point.  With his knee issues maybe he can transition into the PG role (at least for part of the game - 24 minutes or so).
    If this can have some viability I would then like us to take hard run to acquire Iggy.  Roy, Iggy, Batum and Matthews all have some ball handling ability.  Throw in a fast PG in addition and that would be a good 5 man rotation for the PG/SG/SF spots.
