Another Late-Game Rally
posted: Wednesday, November 22, 2006 at 9:35 PM

Wow. Another come from behind win for the Trail Blazers. A pretty nice way to start the Thanksgiving holiday weekend if you ask me.

After trailing the entire game, Portland pulled it together just in time. With only a few minutes remaining the Trail Blazers dug it out and finished off New Jersey, 100-97, for the second time in less than a week.

It was a team effort for the Trail Blazers. It was Zach Randolph hitting his free throws. It was Jarrett Jack running the offense. It was Travis Outlaw at the shot clock buzzer. And it was Martell Webster taking the charge.

Randolph led Portland with 25 points, 20 of which came in the second-half. Jack had 17 to go with his five assists. LaMarcus Aldridge continued his honeymoon streak with 10 points and eight boards.

And boy, I wouldn't want to be in the Nets locker room right now. Losing a lead they held all game long, after being blown out on their home floor just days earlier. Ouch. New Jersey, it seems, just doesn't have an answer for the Trail Blazers right now.

Have a great Holiday weekend, try not to eat TOO much, and hopefully we'll see you again Saturday as Portland travels to Sacramento to take on the kings.

Webster's Play of the Game
posted: at 9:24 PM

Martell draws a charge on a streaking Richard Jefferson that would've tied the game.

A wild melee under the basket after a Jack miss and Zach finally grabs the board and is sent to the line, 12.5 seconds left.

Hits the first...

Three point game. One more to make it two possesions...

It's GOOD. Portland by four.

Let the party begin.

Jumper for two, and Portland by four.

But the stars keep answering for New Jersey. Jefferson comes back for an easy two.

:59 seconds left and the Trail Blazers, with the ball, call a time-out.

Fans have moved from loud to anxious and restrained craziness.

The Raucous Rose Garden

The roof of the Rose Garden might just blow off tonight -- but it wont because of the wind. It'll be the win.

Juan drives around Vince and Portland up by four. Crowd on their feet quieted by a Carter slam.

Tension is Building
posted: at 9:07 PM

This one looks like it's going down to the wire.

With every run the Trail Blazers make, New Jersey answers. The gap jumps from one two six in the blink of an eye, and then back again.

Portland turned this last trip into a four point excursion on a defensive three technical shot by Jarrett Jack, and a three-point play from Z-Bo.

The crowd is irate as Udoka is whistled for a ridiculous bock on Vince Carter. I can hear Mike Rice moaning...

Richard Jefferson Can Jump
posted: at 9:04 PM

But not like Travis Outlaw.

With RJ on his back, Outlaw just scored on two turnaround jumpers. This shot is UN-BLOCKABLE.

Randolph is back in. T-shirts a flying into the crowd. The music is blaring, and the Trail Blazers, needing a stop, are within three with just under six minutes to go.

Webster Frustrated, but Playing Hard
posted: at 8:52 PM

After Martell received questionable charging call from Bennett Salvatore, his face was glowing with frustration. On the Trail Blazers next offensive trip, Webster took some of that energy and FLEW for an offensive rebound on a Dixon miss. He passed out, spotted up and got the ball back behind the arc where he was fouled. He made all three free-throws, and as they say, sometimes the free-throw line is the best way to get your offense back on track.

New Jersey up, 79-74.

I wish Martell would get more aggressive with his shot... He'll make 35-45%, just go out there and shoot.

Vince with an acrobatic reverse layup.

Jarrett for three and the crowd is wild.

Vince's three hushes them.

Jarrett gets them screaming again as he slips through the lane for two.

And the third comes to a close, 75-69, New Jersey.

Zach is Back
posted: at 8:37 PM



Zach is fighting hard for position down low against Jason Collins, and has come to life this quarter where he scored 7. But more importantly Randolph is drawing the New Jersey defense in and clearing space for shots like the three Jarrett Jack just nailed.

On a Randolph layup the Trail Blazers are down only a point.

Civil War Rumblings...
posted: at 8:30 PM

You can hear them almost everywhere. "Beavers by ten." "Ducks in a landslide."

There are a lot of opinions in the Rose Garden tonight to go along with a lot of brown, black, green and yellow clothes, as the Civil War is just two days away. Fans seem to be split evenly, but perhaps that last cheer for the Beavers on the Jumbo-tron for Oregon State was a little louder.

But certainly not as loud as the cheers for LaMarcus' dunk that brought the house down and the Trail Blazers within four. It's got the Nets in a time-out and the fans having a dance party.

Two First-Half Trends that Should be Broken
posted: at 8:25 PM

In the first-half Portland shot a respectable 45% from the field, but we're outdone by New Jersey's 60%, and it's hard to believe New Jersey stay that sharp.

On their first two possessions Portland, and Jarrett Jack in particular, are making a much more concerted effort to feed Zach Randolph down in the post. Z-Bo had only four points in the first-half, which could very well be a season low.

Don’t expect Zach to stay quiet in this second-half…

Nets Finish Half Strong
posted: at 8:04 PM

Just as quickly as the Trail Blazers surged back into the game, Jason Kidd turned things back around for the Nets. His three-pointer just got him up to five points, but it's the already nine assists and tempo control that New Jersey is riding.

With the clock winding down, Antoine Wright hits a fade-away three and New Jersey takes a 13 points lead into half-time.

Making a Run

And it's Ime from the same spot! Trail Blazers within three and the crowd is really getting fired up -- good to get a workout before tomorrow's big feast.

Travis with a jumper, crowd chanting "D-fense" and the New Jersey lead is only one.

Jason Kidd back in and the tempo is rising. New Jersey has seen their lead evaporate while fumbling inside their half-court offense.

Ime from Downtown
posted: at 7:52 PM

Ime Udoka sure has got a sweet shot doesn't he? Right now he's looking like one of the most dangerous long range shooters Portland's got. And with a ferocoius dunk, Jamal Magloire demonstrated some of that raw power that made him an all-star to the crowd's delight.

With the five-point surge, the Trail Blazers are within six, and New Jersey takes a time out.

And, oh my goodness, during the time-out Cody, one of the youngsters interviewed about what he's thankful for this Thanksgiving responds, "that I don't live in New Jersey."

Vinsanity
posted: at 7:44 PM

Vince Carter is looking determined tonight – he's already got 13. When Carter is putting his head down and driving into the lane, rather than settling for jump shots, opposing teams are in trouble.

With Trail Blazers now converging on Carter he threads a beautiful pass to Antoine Wright underneath for an easy two inside.

Dixon gets his three-pointer that was taken from him at the first quarter back, and the Trail Blazers are back within single digits.

LaMarcus Greets the Rose Garden Fans as New Jersey Visits
posted: at 7:32 PM

Fans begining their Thanksgiving break at the Rose Garden were greeted by Trail Blazers rookie LaMarcus Aldridge Wednesday, who thanked them for the support and promsied an exciting season.

Shortly after the Nets jumped out to a quick first quarter lead -- not unlike the Trail Blazers did in New Jersey a few short days ago. The first quater isn't over, and out nowhere, Nenad Krstic has 14 points.

But LaMarcus Aldridge, with eight points, has helped the Trail Blazers keep things from getting out of hand, and the crowd is still very much involved.
