Old Blazers tweets are fitting amid playoff struggles
New Orleans Pelicans guards Jrue Holiday and Rajon Rondo put the Portland Trail Blazers to the sword in Tuesday night’s Game 2 of the Western Conference quarterfinals, and it sounds like the Blazers should have seen it coming.
Holiday led the charge, dropping 33 on the Blazers, while Rondo, not known for his three-point shooting, made two of them, including a backbreaker in the final minute to more or less seal the game for the Pelicans.
It didn’t take long for a pair of years-old tweets from Blazers guards Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum to surface that seemed quite clairvoyant.
You can't win when Rondo making treys and free throws.

If jrue holiday isn't a all star then I don't know what is lol

Accurate on both counts. Holiday even has ownership of the Blazers now. Portland is down 2-0 and will need to win one on the road just to avoid being swept.
