Parsons, for the most part, may have his shooting game down, airball notwithstanding, his retort game....yeah, it could be better.

Portland's official account tweeted a amusing joke about Parsons airballing a three-point attempt during their 112-109 victory. The Blazers' official Twitter account did that when it posted a snarky joke made at Parsons's expense on its official account.

Portland is ninth in the Western Conference and could be destined for the National Basketball Association lottery if it doesn't turn things around, so this is a decent burn.

"This can only worry us", Jean-Marc Ayrault, who was speaking at a joint press conference with his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel in Paris.

"Good luck in the lottery show this year", he tweeted, adding a fist emoji.

He said that Portland effectively won the lottery already by not signing the forward, as they had planned to do, in free agency this past summer.

Refusing to let bygones be bygones, however, Parsons couldn't help himself and replied to McCollum. Blazers guard C.J. McCollum then responded to Parsons, who fired back. He's averaging 14.3 points, 11.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks in 31.5 minutes per game over his last three. He's just a stash right now and could be rested on Saturday vs. the Jazz.
