Yesterday I had the opportunity to go down to Portland with some friends to watch the Blazers play the Warriors. Obviously I was most excited to see Klay Thompson play. Seeing players in person is far more impressive than on tv. I was beyond impressed with Curry, Thompson and Lillard. Curry has an extremely impressive cross over and this was seen several times. Curry and Thompson combined for 64 points....here is what is cool....they had 51 points combined in the second half! It was one of the better games I have ever seen. Blazers had at one point a 18 point lead and the Splash Brothers stormed back. Klay hit two threes in the final minute, one of them being the game winner and the game went down to the last seconds. I was also impressed with Klay's defense. He was on Lillard most of the night. Although Lillard had 20+ points, he did so on barely 33% shooting. Here are some of the pics I took. I have a lot more if anyone is interested. Since there are a couple player collectors on this forum, I tried to get some pics for you (Lillard and Barnes).

I know man! Had I known about it, I would have invited you! Once I knew I was going, I wanted to invite you but the tickets were already purchased!
Awesome!! Thanks for including the Barnes pictures! Big Grin I wanted one of those game used blue away jerseys but Meigray said the price would be 1750 haha so I said no thanks.

No problem man. I made sure to at least get a couple pics of the big name players on both teams.
Bump to the top for those who may have missed it.
Awesome! Thanks for the pictures with Victor Claver on em!

No problem, he had a good game!
Very nice. It's true how much more you can take away from a game in person than on TV. The footwork on some of these players when you watch them in person is just amazing. A good example is Blake Griffin for a big guy. I never saw it on TV but when you are there and you see his footwork and how he uses it to go around defenders is just amazing. Nice pics BTW, need to invest in a new camera for me now :-)

Thanks man! I was impressed with Curry's ball handling skills. I didn't know that he was such a good ball handler until this game. He plays PG but that doesn't mean he has to have the amazing handling skills such as an amazing cross over. He really impressed me.

I was actually shocked with how well the pics turned out. We were at the start of the 300 level and the seats were amazing. The camera is my old 200 dollar Costco special. I have a nicer camera but it is 3x the size of the small one and I was nervous they wouldn't let me bring it in with the big case (the other one fits in my pocket). I was pleased though with the results!
