After Kasey's 35th Birthday party at McMenamins Edgefield, Mandy and I drove to Moda and parked in the rain before heading inside. Game day posters were already sold out prior to 90 minutes before tip off. We sat in the section behind our bench and the first half was fantastic. We took a 13 point lead into halftime but let it evaporate in the 3rd and 4th quarter, culminating in a guy from our section being thrown out for yelling at Warrior fans. We lost the game but my tweet with video of the incident went viral. We spent the end of the night at Pizza Schmizza Pub & Grub on NW 21st and Salt & Straw. Section: 122, Row: J, Seats: 5 & 6
We couldn't maintain home court advantage, giving this game away and also a lead in the series to Denver, now down 2-1. Nurk accepted the Maurice Lucas award for most resembling his spirit. Went back to the airport after the game for a flight and some Burgerville. Section: 112, Row: K with Dad
Dame started off the playoffs with a deep 3 from the side logo and never looked back. Mandy and I went to Salt & Straw and shopped a little afterward before driving our rental car to the airport. Great day! Section 101, Row J, Seats 3 & 4
On Lakers fan appreciation night for their last game of the season, they passed out car license plate holders and held a lead late in the 4th quarter. Headband Moe Harkless brought us back, hitting 4 clutch free throws, 2 huge dunks and finally a buzzer beating corner 3 to win the game. We sat in the row behind Neil, and I sat directly behind Bill Walton by 2 rows. As the night unfolded OKC fought back to beat the Rockets at the buzzer as well, leaving the door open for us to grab the 3 seed the next night vs Sacramento. After his post game interview, Moe tossed me his headband. Section: Loge Center 102, Row: 2, Seats: 17 & 18 with Dad.
Brought Dave and Katie for playoff game in J&S suite.
Western Conference Semifinals Game 5 -- The Nuggets rocked the first half with Paul Millsap's old man strength. They defended the paint and the arc, and Portland never fully got their pants on. A decisive playoff victory!
With Mike. Game 7.
