Blazers .001 out of 3rd seed

The Spurs just beat the Rockets, the Bulls beat the Hornets, Miami beat the Jazz, the Mavs lost last night. Denver looks to win, but that would still bring them to .627. Portland? .631. Houston? .632. !!

"A Victory for the Word Poise"--Loaded Orygun Nets Recap

I swear I heard Rice say this--if so, it's also a Victory for in-game Dewar's....

Teamwork. Friendship. Love

The chemistry and affection the players have for each other continues to blow me away, and make me proud to be a fan of this group of men: Fernandez was released from a Portland hospital Tuesday afternoon in good spirits and with relatively minor wounds, including a bruised chest and a right hip pointer. The reserve guard is listed as doubtful for the Blazers' game tonight against the Dallas Mavericks, but Rodriguez, who stayed overnight at the hospital with his countryman, said Fernandez was upbeat and improving. He did WHAT? I guess it's very possibly happened before, but it's the first I've ever heard of a teammate staying OVERNIGHT with a player in the hospital, who wasn't comatose or terminal. Warm fuzzies!

Jackson Disses Portland--Bulletin Board Material!

5

Given the Blazers' notable 26-5 home record this season, would anybody be surprised if the visitors lost again tonight? "I don't want to talk about that," Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said Sunday. "It's been belabored too many years now. It happened before I even started and just continued on here for years. Mark it down to rainy weather, depressing faces." Uh, WTF? Dogging the rain I can handle, but whose depressing faces is he referring to, exactly? Let's make sure they belong to the L$kers, eh?

Blazers at the Turn, Via Hollinger

I agree with Coach--I actually thought it was a pretty good game where they got after it, mostly did as they were told, and both saved it and won it with tremendous execution at both ends.

Gonna try something tonight--I have Lexus Level seats, and so I'll bring my laptop and try to liveblog at least a quarter of it using the Rose Garden wifi. Check the link for a text-based rendition of the game, with comments along the way. Sort of like an open thread, with just me posting (but you can comment, with a free account!)

West Out for Blazer Game (and many more)

6

A bit of good news--it's LeBron and...LeBron next Wednesday at the Garden; Delonte West fractured his wrist in that loss to the Bulls last night (man, didn't we sweep them? :)), and is out 6 weeks or so. Looks like a great time to be catching them--on the road, in a slump of sorts, without a big cog. One of my goals for this year is to see the Blazers beat the L+kers, Celts and Cavs all at least once. One down, next one up Wednesday!

They Went to Jerryd--BRex Leads Blazers Over Nets

The aggressive play of rookie Jerryd Bayless sparks the entire team to storm back from a 3rd quarter deficit! Loaded Orygun has the analysis of road game #3 on the trip.

"In my book, three don’t do nothing but stand in the corner," said Outlaw. "I’m so used to playing at the four, where I’d always touch it. I’d at least touch it once every trip down the floor. But at the three, you stay spaced and hope your defender helps. My man ain’t been helping too much lately, but you hope your man helps."

Well, no bleepin' wonder! He thinks that's all you're supposed to do!

Using Hollinger Stats, LoadedO Predicts 51-31 season

3

Using the Hollinger rankings as a reference point and reviewing the Blazers' record against the league to date, I created four tiers of teams in the league and assigned a potential winning percentage over the teams in those tiers. Basically it's the Big 3, the other teams fighting Portland in the West, a smallish group incl. Toronto and Detroit, and then the bottom 13 teams. From that I calculated the aggregate potential for wins and came up with 51-31. See how I did it, at LoadedO...

Loaded O Recap: No Shock in Loss, But it Was Potentially Winnable

+

(Loaded Orygun's recap/analysis of the L*ker game) I stuck to the good stuff, running down every possession of the very fun first quarter. They should have been ahead by even more, but even with that human level of shot inefficiency they were doing very well. The L*kers cry like all the elite teams when things don't go right for them the first half, and then magically those problems disappear in the second.
