Two-Shootin' Beno Udrih Killed The Blazers And It Was The Best

That the opening game of the Grizzlies-Blazers series ended up being dominated by the work of a slick, cold-blooded midrange jumpshooter makes sense. Probably all of us expected that to happen at least a few times in the series, anyway. Probably most of us expected that player to be Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge, one… » 4/20/15 12:39pm Monday 12:39pm

Chris Paul Is Up To His Old Tricks: Tapping Nuts And Dominating Games

The Clippers and Trail Blazers were locked into a fierce battle in Portland tonight, as the two teams were tied (along with the Spurs) for fourth place and the all important (though apparently not for the Clippers) home court advantage in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. » 4/02/15 12:16am 4/02/15 12:16am

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

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

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
