Kevin Ollie to the line...
posted: Friday, December 29, 2006 at 9:32 PM

There's probably some great jokes about Ollie-Ollie oxen free but right now, Portland just needs Kevin Ollie to miss a free-throw!

HE DOES!

14.3 left and Roy's got a shot.... No good... No good... NO FOUL CALL? It appeared that Roy was fouled, but the referee felt otherwise.

Trail Blazers wound up on the short end of a 98 - 95 game, Roy finished with a team high 15 points, and Zach Randolph led all Trail Blazers with 12 rebounds.

R,O.Y. for ROY!
posted: at 9:30 PM

After Andre Miller choked on the free-throws, Brandon Roy isolated everyone on the 76ers defense and laid it in for 2.

The Trail Blazers are down 96 - 95 with 16.5 left in the game.

Can you believe it!?!

Webster in transition!
posted: at 9:27 PM

Portland still needs help, but their full-court press has cut the 76ers lead to 5, with 30 seconds to play.

Andre Miller will shoot 2... AND MISS THE FIRST. Second is.... good.

Two three's will tie it, but the Sixers lead 96 - 90.

Two minutes left...
posted: at 9:20 PM

With both teams over the limit, the 76ers will shoot free-throws from here on out.

Portland is getting no love from the referees to help their cause. On back-to-back possessions, the Trail Blazers were called for offensive fouls. First, Randolph was called for trying to establish position in the paint, and then Roy was called for burning his defender so bad that he actually fell over.

It seems like Cheeks' complaining finally paid off, and it couldn't have come at a worse time for the Trail Blazers.

That's why they call him Spanish Chocolate!
posted: at 9:16 PM

Sergio just pulled down two offensive rebounds on one possession and then finally just decided to score the basket himself.

In true Sergio fashion- he split 3 defenders, twirled in air, tipped his hat, smiled for the cameras, and laid the ball in for a stylish two points.

Portland is streaking, bobbleheads are shaking, fans are screaming and we're all ready to see another Trail Blazer comeback.

ZeBo back in...
posted: at 9:08 PM

In need of some scoring, Coach Nate has brought back the Trail Blazers' bread-and-butter, Zach Randolph.

This game's going to come down to Portland's ability to stop Andre Iguodala, who has absolutely taken over the Rose Garden. Andre Miller has also caused problems for the Portland defense, who have been victimized by lay-ups plus one throughout the second half.

Brandon Roy, however, and the rest of the Portland Trail Blazers do not have an ounce of quit in them, and have cut the 76ers lead to 8.

That'll help...
posted: at 9:05 PM

Andre Iguodala had a chance at a wide-open fastbreak dunk, but missed! It was a truly Homer Simpson "Doh!" moment for the 76ers...

Headed the other way, Brandon Roy turned one man's pain into a Portland gain, converting on a lay-up and a free-throw to cut into Philadelphia's lead.

Like lightning...
posted: at 9:01 PM

It'd be interesting to see who would win in a race: Vin Diesel's car from "The Fast and the Furious" or Sergio Rodriguez.

The point guard is just plain fast and he knows how to distribute, most recently finding Martell Webster cutting on the baseline. Webster's missed lay-up fell into the lap of Jamaal Magloire who then put the ball in and drew a foul.

The Trail Blazers need to find some momentum quickly as they still trail 83 - 73.

Lamarcus Aldridge has entered for the Trail Blazers, who are hoping to energize their offense. The rookie power forward/center's first shot was rushed by an expiring shot clock, and banked just left.

Get ready for the fourth!
posted: at 8:49 PM

There's also "Spanish Chocolate" Sergio Rodriguez, which is probably one of the league's best nicknames.

After holding a steady pace for free Chalupas, the Portland offense has struggled mightily in the third quarter, scoring only 17 points so far. The 76ers, however, have found the momentum and turned a 4 point Trail Blazer lead into a 7 point margin favoring Philadelphia.

It's going to take another fourth quarter comeback for the Trail Blazers to extend their winning streak, but like Rocky says "it ain't over 'til it's over."

Roy draws hard foul...
posted: at 8:41 PM

Trying to get something going on the offensive end, Brandon Roy has tried desperately to attack the basket everytime he touches the ball. His efforts resulted in one of the hardest fouls of the night as Rodney Carney sent Roy to the floor with a brutal trip.

It's recently become evident that the Trail Blazers need more nicknames for their players. Sure, we have ZeBo and Joel "The Thrilla" Pryzbilla, but beyond that, announcers have struggled to find quality nicknames to help inspire the Portland roster. If you've got any ideas, feel free to let us know, and we'll pass the word along.

Its raining in the Rose Garden..
posted: at 8:32 PM

Jumpers and tee-shirts.

Portland cheerleaders dropped tee-shirts from the rafters to help motivate this Rose Garden crowd and the fans responded with some foundation rocking cheers.

The Trail Blazers have struggled early in the second half, especially with turnovers. Portland has turned the ball over 12 times, while the 76ers have only coughed it up 6 times.

Sixers now lead 63 - 57.

New game strategy should be to make the 76ers dizzy by having #11 run circles around them.

And to have him hit a few more half court shots...

Third quarter underway..
posted: at 8:26 PM

We're half way to Chalupas here in the Rose Garden with a halftime score of 51 to 47, and it would be great to treat fans at the last home game of 2006 with free dinner.

The 76ers have started out the second half with a lot of energy, and taken a quick lead, 55 to 53.

Udoka continues to lead all Trail Blazers with 12 points, including the only two scored in the second half.

Coach Cheeks' technical...
posted: at 8:19 PM

Heading into halftime, Coach Cheeks was hit with a technical for arguing with the refs. Beyond that, it's tough to say. He was livid after Travis Outlaw's offensive call was reversed into free-throws, and his temper didn't seem to settle after back-to-back possessions by the 76ers resulted in missed shots.

It seems like Coach Cheeks is used to his team drawing 31 fouls a game, like the first contest between these two teams, and his team has yet to get that kind of help tonight. So far, the teams are tied at 9 fouls apiece.

HALFTIME
posted: at 8:09 PM

Finally fed up with the coach's grumbling, refs hit 76ers coach Maurice Cheeks with a technical foul. Jarrett Jack did not convert on the free-throw.

Andre Iguodala missed a three-pointer to end the half, but his air ball was caught and converted into a lay-up by point guard Andre Miller.

Tonight's halftime entertainment is provided by two local fire stations, who are playing dodgeball for state bragging rights. After a rough start, the Vancouver fire station pulled off the upset in the second game, tying the series at 1 game apiece.

In the rubber match and the follow-up, Vancouver- representing one of the the best cities in America- dominated, winning the series 3 to 1.

Stripes are confused...
posted: at 8:05 PM

After calling an offensive foul on Travis Outlaw, the somewhat confused referees then reversed the call and rewarded the small forward with two free-throws.

There's no word yet on whether the referee just pointed the wrong way, confusing left and right, or just forgot which team was dressed in which jersey...

Regardless, they wound up getting the call right and Portland now leads 49 - 43.

Timeout Trivia...
posted: at 8:02 PM

True or False... Was Brandon Roy named Pac-10 player of the year last year?




An overwhelming amount of the audience knew the correct answer, which of course, was true. The rookie guard capped a great career at the University of Washington with all-conference honors and was named Pac-10 player of the year.

Starters return to game for Trail Blazers...
posted: at 7:56 PM

And Ime Udoka is immediately hit with a very questionable blocking call. The small forward had great position on the baseline, but Iguodala was able to draw the foul after a great deal of whining.

Even the bobbleheads are shaking in disbelief after that call...

Portland's lead has been cut to 3, 46 - 43.

Sergio with the REJECTION...
posted: at 7:51 PM

Could Sergio do any more for the Trail Blazers? Against the Hornets, he was averaging nearly an assist a minute, and he's followed up that performance with a 40 foot three-pointer tonight!

But that's not all the rookie point guard out of Spain has to offer. He proved that he can get up too, blocking a Kyle Korver jumper from the baseline.

If that wasn't enough to energize these Trail Blazer fans, Juan Dixon and Travis Outlaw just connected on a 35 foot alley-oop. Outlaw jumped high enough to grab a quarter off the top of the backboard before slamming the ball down with authority.

Call up Terry!
posted: at 7:41 PM

If former Trail Blazers Terry Porter and Tracy Murray aren't watching the game, they better turn it on.

The Trail Blazers have hit 6 three-pointers so far and we're not even halfway through the second quarter.

Kyle Korver is doing his best to keep the 76ers in the game, but his effort just isn't enough to match the Portland effort. It seems like the 76ers are running the Duke offense- featuring a double-screen for their best shooter and then a quick jump shot.

Juan Dixon just drilled number 7 for the Trail Blazers, making it 21 points from beyond the arc.

Trail Blazers lead 40 - 31.

Portland gets defensive...
posted: at 7:33 PM

It's been a great quarter for the Portland defense, who have challenged every shot and got a hand on nearly every rebound.

Spanish Chocolate has checked in to end the first quarter and..... NAILED A 40 FOOTER!

Unbelievable!

In what's quickly becoming Trail Blazer tradition, Sergio Rodriguez subbed in to end the first quarter. The point guard only needs about 3 seconds to dribble the length of the floor, but tonight, he let one fly from about 3 steps in from half court and drilled it for three Trail Blazer points.

Congratulations to Sadie for winning the Ronald McDonald hippity-hop race during the break. The young girl bounced her way up and down the court for a year's worth of free Happy Meals courtesy of McDonalds.

With 3:17 left in the first...
posted: at 7:28 PM

Ime Udoka has 10 points and 2 rebounds.

At this pace, Udoka has a chance to be the first Trail Blazer to score 40 points this season and if he picks up a few more rebounds, he could land his third career double-double.

Juan Dixon, Travis Outlaw and Jamaal Magloire have all checked in for the Trail Blazers, with Brandon Roy directing traffic from the point.

Good guys lead 25 - 17.

Slow start but Jack and Ime get things going...
posted: at 7:16 PM

After a slow start, Jack and Ime did their best to get things going for the Trail Blazers by hitting three-pointers.

If the first game was any indication, Portland fans may be in for a long, drawn out heavyweight battle. Hometown referees called 31 fouls against the Trail Blazers in Philadelphia and much of the game was spent shooting from the free-throw line.

Portland now has 3 three-pointers, two from point guard Jarrett Jack, and a 15 - 13 point lead.

Jack leads all Trail Blazers with 6 points.

Brandon Roy breaks the ice!
posted: at 7:13 PM

In order to commemorate Brandon Roy Bobblehead night, the rookie of the year candidate started off the Trail Blazers scoring with a beautiful lay-up.

He was also fouled on the play but he uncharacteristically missed the free-throw.


Trail Blazers lead 2 - 1

Starting lineups introduced...
posted: at 7:03 PM

Forward Chris Webber will not start for the 76ers after playing only 12 minutes in Philadelphia's game Tuesday. This is great news for power forward and all-star hopeful Zach Randolph. Webber has played Randolph tough in every meeting between the two teams and should be one of the first 76ers to come off the bench.

Don't forget to send in your all-star ballot. Zach Randolph definitely has all-star numbers this year, but he still needs your support if he wants to see time in Las Vegas!

The Rose Garden is ready to rock!
posted: at 6:46 PM

The arena is rocking, the bobbleheads are shaking and the Portland crowd is anxiously awaiting the introduction of the Portland Trail Blazers!

After a coast-to-coast victory against an injury-depleted Hornets team, the Trail Blazers have to be excited for tonight's contest against the 76ers. It's the first time in a very long time that the 76ers have came to Portland without Allen Iverson in the starting lineup, but they've found A.I. 2.0 in Andre Iguodala.

Iguodala leads all 76ers with 15.9 points, 4.6 assists, and 2.07 steals per game.

Philadelphia also got some interesting assets from the Denver Nuggets to replace their disgruntled superstar. Andre Miller is an assist machine and is expected to start at the point position, while Joe Smith should help out Samuel Dalembert in the paint.

The Trail Blazers beat the 76ers in their first meeting on the road by a last second Zach Randolph lay-up. Despite only winning by two points, the Trail Blazers controlled much of the game. Juan Dixon had a huge effort off the bench in that game, scoring 17 points and stealing the ball 4 times.

It's the last home game of 2006 and could very well be the second game in a very long Portland winning streak! Get to the Rose Garden as soon as possible or catch the game on Fox Sports Northwest.
