LeBron James Called This Dwyane Wade Game-Winner

Old Man Dwyane Wade's been on a nice little run lately, averaging nearly 30 points per game over his last seven. He dropped 32 on the Portland Trail Blazers last night, the most important of which came by way of this smooth, game-winning jumper at the tail end of the fourth quarter. The Blazers probably should have… » 3/19/15 9:38am 3/19/15 9:38am

Wesley Matthews Tears Achilles, Will Miss Rest Of Season

Wesley Matthews went down on a non-contact play during tonight's Blazers-Mavericks match-up, and the worst possible scenario has come true, with the Blazers confirming Adrian Wojnarowski's original report of a torn Achilles tendon: » 3/06/15 1:20am 3/06/15 1:20am

Celtics Beat Trail Blazers On Sloppiest Game-Winner Of The Year

Down two to the Trail Blazers with under 10 seconds remaining, the Celtics were relying upon Jared Sullinger to get them a crucial basket. That should tell you all you need to know about how good they are, that Brad Stevens looked up and down his bench for his best option and settled upon Sullinger. The move didn't… » 1/23/15 12:49am 1/23/15 12:49am

Police Lock Down Moda Center As Hundreds Of Protesters Gather Outside

Police aren't letting anybody enter or leave the Moda Center—better known as the Rose Garden, and the site of a Trail Blazers-Pacers game that is currently in the fourth quarter—according to KOIN News.

Let's Laugh At The Sixers Playing Completely Hapless Defense

I've been watching this on loop for a good 10 minutes, and I just now noticed that while Damian Lillard is just hanging out, probably trying to figure out if he's somehow gained the ability to freeze time, Wes Matthews is also wide fucking open in the corner. Lillard could have said, "No, this wide-open three that… » 11/25/14 12:26pm 11/25/14 12:26pm

Gary Neal Was So Close To Hitting This Buzzer Beater

The Blazers came away with a 102-100 victory over the Hornets last night, but not before Charlotte's Gary Neal had everyone convinced that the game was going to overtime. » 11/12/14 10:11am 11/12/14 10:11am

Blazers Fan's Half-Court Shot Is Confounding And Terrible

A lucky Blazers fan got to take a half-court shot at last night's game, and I'm sure he would have won some kind of sweet prize if he had made the shot. He did not win a prize, though, because he somehow managed to do this: » 11/07/14 10:24am 11/07/14 10:24am

Nic Batum's Dog Is A Very Good Sports Dog

If there's an upside to Nic Batum's Blazers having been eliminated from the NBA playoffs, it's that he now gets to spend much more time playing one-on-one games with his doggie. Based on this clip, his doggie is a very good doggie. » 5/23/14 11:59am 5/23/14 11:59am

Kawhi Leonard, Who Is The Future, Ran The Blazers Off The Floor

If you didn't catch any of the Spurs' series-clinching win over the Blazers last night—yet another perfectly orchestrated, Spursian blowout—the only highlight you really need to watch is the one above. » 5/15/14 10:44am 5/15/14 10:44am

Damian Lillard Going To The Rim Makes No Damn Sense

Kevin Harlan has the best jump-stop in the NBA. The timing is generally easier; spend enough years talking through NBA games and you'll get a feel for the cadence of a pick-and-roll, or how to ride out the crowd noise after a big play. But Harlan is great because when that timing gets thrown off and he's caught… » 5/13/14 10:17am 5/13/14 10:17am

There Was A Snake In The Blazers' Locker Room Before Tonight's Game

Rockets Fans Go Through Emotional Wringer Of Parsons And Lillard Shots

This is heartbreaking and absolutely hilarious. These guys are so fired up for the Chandler Parsons shot that gave Houston the momentary lead in last night's game that it makes the reference-room silence after the Lillard buzzer-beater devastatingly funny. Unless you're a Rockets fan, obviously. » 5/03/14 6:13pm 5/03/14 6:13pm

Front-Row View Of Damian Lillard's Buzzer-Beater Is Awesome

This Vine is awesome. It's a court-level view of Damian Lillard curling around a screen, clapping for the ball, and sinking the game-winning buzzer-beater from behind the arc against Houston last night. Everything about it is perfect. The angle, the clapping, the shot, the buzzer and mostly, the crowd reaction. Be… » 5/03/14 10:17am 5/03/14 10:17am

Lillard Buzzer-Beater Delivers Portland To First Series Win Since 2000

For Real Though, We Need To Talk About Thomas Robinson's Block

I, like most basketball fans, have been thinking about last night's game between the Rockets and Blazers pretty much all day. But out of all the amazing shit that happened in that game—Wes Matthews torpedoing the ball and the win out of Patrick Beverley's hands; that brief stretch when Nic Batum, Damian Lillard, and… » 4/28/14 4:51pm 4/28/14 4:51pm
