The Hornets have no timeouts and Zach Randolph will be shooting two free-throws with 2.4 seconds left.

First one: GOOOOOOD! Blazers up one!

Second: No GOOOD! Last second shot by the Hornets..... NO GOOOOOD. The shot was closer than it need to be, but not close enough, nailing the front of the rim. Blazers win 92 -91 with one of the greatest comebacks in Blazer history.

Randolph with another monster night with 31 points, including the game-winner, and 12 rebounds. His presence in the second half absolutely controlled the Hornets who had no answer for his one-on-one post game.

Yeah. There's some mistake with the espn scoreboard. I'm closely following their live gamecast so i thought the blazers lose because they are showing the score but when checking with other sites (, they have it 92 - 91 BLAZERS! Anyways, the important thing is we won.

I was at the game and let me tell you, this team is fun to watch. We were down early on but our guys didn't let that get them down. They picked themselves up and won every quarter after the first to win a nail-biter thriller game.

Kudos to the fans for the energy they gave our guys. I hope to see the rose garden full for now on. This is a team worth seeing and supporting.

Keep up the good work Blazers!

Chris Paul misses clutch layup...
posted: at 9:32 PM

Granted it was a tough shot, but Chris Paul has to be kicking himself after missing a left-handed layup. The rebound was up for grabs until it slammed off David West's chest and trickled out of bounds.

With 7.4 seconds left on the clock, Juan Dixon will shoot two free-throws. Portland still leads 89-88.

One minute left...
posted: at 9:23 PM

Randolph is dominating the Hornets on offense. There's simply nothing else that can be said about his performance. He has broken the 30 point barrier again and given the Blazers an 89-88 lead with 1 minute remaining.

These Blazers might just be the new 'Cardiac Kids' because they've done everything in their power to raise the collective blood pressure of everyone in attendance.

Outlaw just recovered his 2nd steal of the night and the Blazers have possession with 39 ticks left on the clock. Portland still leads by 1.

Time-out Blazers with 5:02 left to play...
posted: at 9:14 PM

It's hard even to think with the noise of the crowd, but the Blazers and Hornets are all tied up with 5:02 left in the fourth quarter. Zach Randolph has 26 points, 11 rebounds and has absolutely controlled the second half. He's quickly becoming one of the few players in the league that can take over a game whenever he touches the ball.

Can fans handle another nail-biter?
posted: at 9:08 PM

Not only are the two teams separated by 3 points with 7:51 left to play in the fourth quarter, but Portland also has a chance to break 100 points with some streaky shooting. If they do break 100, fans will have earned free chalupas in both games this week!

Zach Randolph pulled down an offensive rebound and put the ball back in the hoop to tie the game. He was also fouled on the play, giving Portland their first lead of the game.

Current score is 80 - 78 Blazers!

Third quarter set to be slugfest...
posted: at 8:52 PM

As Portland mascot Blaze finishes his set of incredibly acrobatic dunks, fans anxiously await the start of the third quarter. Randolph has 19 points and 9 rebounds while Jarrett Jack has played solid with 13 points and 5 assists.

Extremely questionable call to start the third quarter. Ime Udoka went straight up with Hornet guard Bobby Jackson and apparently invaded too much of his personal space for the referee's liking. The Portland bench received a technical foul on the play, but Jackson was only able to connect on 2 of 3 from the line.

Portland trails by 4.

With a chance to tie the game for the first time since tip-off, the Blazers have sparked pandemonium in the Rose Garden.

A defensive three-point violation by the Hornets and a Jarrett Jack free-throw cut the Hornet lead to 1 point.

The kids and their temper's these days...
posted: at 8:39 PM

After a bit of mutual contact between ex-Hornet Jamaal Magloire and current center Tyson Chandler, the young center felt victimized by the blocking foul call and let the referees know exactly how he felt. For his open expression, the refs returned the favor by kindly ejecting Chandler who will spend the rest of the game watching from a television set in the locker room.

Travis Outlaw immediately checked in and wasted no time getting his 5th block and first steal of the game. The Rose Garden erupted in chaos as Portland took its first timeout of the half still trailing by 7.

Blazers Blimp makes it's rounds...
posted: at 8:29 PM

As fans return to their seats, they have a lot more to be excited about than just the Blazer Blimp. Blazers dominated the second quarter 31 - 17. Check out the live box score here.

As expected, the Blazers look reluctant to test Brandon Roy's heel. Much of this reluctancy, however, is a direct result of the play of both Juan Dixon and Martell Webster. Both Juan and Martell went into half with 2 blocks a piece and Dixon also had a big-time steal. As much as it hurts to see Roy on the bench, it's great to see Portland controlling the tempo and prohibiting easy baskets.

Portland goes to half with momentum...
posted: at 8:16 PM

Down 25 after the first quarter, the Blazers started playing with a purpose in the second quarter. The defensive energy was the biggest difference which was punctuated by Juan Dixon's huge block at the end of the half.

Randolph entered the Blazers' locker room with 12 points and Travis Outlaw is Portland's second leading scorer with 10, but its Outlaw's effort that's getting the most attention. Outlaw leads all Blazers with 5 rebounds and 4 blocked shots.

Randolph warming up...
posted: at 8:10 PM

Portland fans knew that it had to happen eventually, because you don't average 28 points a game by not shooting. Portland returned to the low-post game that had been so effective in the initial games of the season and Randolph responded in the second quarter by scoring 10 points and grabbing 3 rebounds.

With just over 24 seconds left in the quarter Zach is shooting free throws with the potential to bring Portland within 10.

Tim from Portland wins Toyota Tundra
posted: at 8:00 PM

In one of the brand new Blazers' fan contests, one fan in every game gets a chance to shoot a half-court shot for a Toyota Tundra. Tonight was the first time the contest has been held and Portland fans were hardly disappointed. The contestant, Tim from Portland, took a giant step, spun the ball backwards and nailed the shot, completing an incredible basketball feat and winning a brand new S.U.V. for his efforts.

No word yet on whether or not Tim will share the ride with the fans in attendance...

Tim Chapman is my husband and I couldn't be more proud of the shot he made. We still can't believe it!

Hopefully this will inspire more Blazer fans to "Dream the impossible"!!!!!!

Tee-shirts fall from rafters...
posted: at 7:47 PM

For awhile, it was raining sports memorabilia in the Rose Garden and its always nice to see young children wind up with the big score. Basketball games aren't just for the parents any more and the Blazers do a nice job of mixing entertainment for all ages with the game itself.

Back to the game, though, because the Blazers are making a nice run in the middle of the second quarter. Outlaw has already racked up three blocks in the first half and in one of the more impressive displays of athleticism blocked a shot, ran coast-to-coast and laid the ball in over three Hornet defenders.

Zach Randolpph has also returned after a brief rest. His return has only pumped up an already upbeat crowd that has sparked a 12-2 Portland run.

Blazers struggling to find outside shooting...
posted: at 7:40 PM

The biggest difference in the game so far has been Portland's inability to find Randolph down low. It's tough to credit Tyson Chandler who started the game matched up with Randolph or David West, who has taken over duties since. Randolph just hasn't been getting the same touches that Portland had so much success with against the Lakers...

Going into the second quarter, Portland trails the Hornets 38 - 13.

Down early, Portland called their first timeout with just over 5 minutes to play. While the Blazers talked strategy, the Portland cheerleaders handed out small Pizza Hut pizzas to the loudest fans, supporting the idea that nothing energizes a sports fan quite like a warm pizza.

Chants of MVP haven't quite started for Zach Randolph, but give it a few more games. If he keeps scoring 28 points and grabbing 10.2 boards per game, there's no way the league can keep him away from that MVP trophy...

Brandon Roy is starting at shooting guard and received a huge ovation from the Portland crowd. Hopefully he gets going early and can forget all about that pesky heel.

Roy and Aldridge are suited up...
posted: at 7:06 PM

As the Blazers warm-up, fans will notice two very big additions to the Portland bench. Both Brandon Roy and Lamarcus Aldridge, Portland’s first round acquisitions in last year’s draft, are suited up and ready to play. Almost like a highly touted heavyweight fight, fans were ready to see last year’s Rookie of the Year match-up with this year’s leading candidate, but this may not be an accurate portrayal. This is Brandon Roy’s first game after injuring his heel against the Clippers…

Lamarcus Aldridge could also be a huge boost for the Blazers as he makes his first regular season appearance. Aldridge is an up-tempo player with a huge frame and could provide some help for an extremely depleted Blazers’ front line.

Big Match-ups Tonight...
posted: at 7:00 PM

Tonight’s contest against the NO/OK Hornets features some interesting match-ups, but none is more exciting than Jarrett Jack against Chris Paul at the point guard. Paul had an amazing rookie year last year on his way to unanimous Rookie of the Year honors and his performances against Portland were no different. Paul averaged 7.0 assists while only turning the ball over 2.3 times per game against the Blazers…

Jarrett Jack and all the Blazers are building confidence with each game, which is a scary thought for such a young team. In Wednesday’s game against the Lakers, Jack frequently manned up or helped defend Kobe Bryant, who knows a thing or two about scoring. Look for Jarrett Jack to pressure Chris Paul all over the floor for the entire 48 minutes of the game.
