Portland wins! Portland wins! Portland wins!
posted: Sunday, January 21, 2007 at 8:30 PM

Jarrett Jack made one-of-two from the free-throw line to seal the deal.

Jack's miss, however, cost the Rose Garden fans free Chalupas...

Brandon Roy had a night to remember, scoring 28 points and grabbing 9 rebounds. Zach Randolph also had a solid game with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

From opening tip-off this game was Portland's to win. They out-rebounded the Bucks, out-passed the Bucks, and flat out-hustled the Bucks. Regardless Ruben Patterson and Earl Boykins, two players that know about hustle, were able to keep Milwaukee close.

Jarrett Jack was truly a Jack "of all Trades" tonight, scoring 14 points, grabbing 4 rebounds and dishing 3 assists.

Martell Webster was the final Trail Blazer in double figures, finishing with 15 points.

BOYKINS!?!?
posted: at 8:23 PM

HEART BREAKER!

Boykins nailed a three with less than a minute left on the clock to cut the Trail Blazers lead to 3 points... The shot came after Ruben Patterson knocked down Brandon Roy with a hit that would've made Lawrence Taylor proud.

Patterson then found Boykins... But the Trail Blazers refused to let the shot affect them, as they proceeded to take as much time as they could off the clock. Brandon Roy then isolated and dominated, giving the Trail Blazers a 5 point lead.

With 5.2 left, the Trail Blazers are up 4 and one point away from free Chalupas!

NOISE! NOISE!
posted: at 8:20 PM

The Rose Garden crowd is living and dying with each basket as this game heads to a dramatic finish...

The Trail Blazers hit a huge three and then converted three free-throws to give them a little bit of breathing room, but Earl Boykins and Ruben Patterson are keeping the Bucks within striking distance.

With 1:02 remaining, the Trail Blazers are up 96 - 90.

R.O.Y. for THREE!
posted: at 8:17 PM

Mr. Clutch!

Just when the Trail Blazers needed it, Brandon Roy nailed a huge three-pointer to put Portland up 6...

Roy then found Jarrett Jack on the ensuing possession, after driving to the basket, and Jack was fouled behind the three-point line. Jack converted all three free-throws.

96 - 89!!!

Webster and Magloire return...
posted: at 8:09 PM

Portland needs both scoring and rebounding to finish off the Bucks and they're hoping that's what Webster and Magloire will bring to the table.

The Trail Blazers and Zach Randolph, in particular, have been hurt by some tough Milwaukee defense. Zach has been hit with a double-team as soon as he touches the ball, which has forced a couple untimely turnovers...

The Bucks are in the penalty and the Trail Blazers will shoot free-throws from here on out.

It's 90 - 85 Trail Blazers lead.

YIKES!
posted: at 8:04 PM

The Trail Blazers have called a free tee-shirt timeout to rejuvenate the Rose Garden crowd, but it may be Zach Randolph that needs some help.

The poor power forward was hit 17 times on one play by the Bucks frontline, who could not grab a defensive rebound and decided to take their frustrations out on Randolph. Despite the physical assault, it was Raef LaFrentz who drew the foul and then converted the free-throws.

As a fan, it's tough to watch as both Brandon Roy and Zach Randolph receive nightly beatings that go unnoticed...

Trail Blazers up 8, 86 - 78.

R.O.Y. returns along with ZeBo
posted: at 7:59 PM

Alright folks, enough jokes.

Time to put the starters back in and close out the Bucks, who have started making Rose Garden fans nervous with their fourth quarter rally.

Webster and LaFrentz, who have played well in tonight's contest, are joined by ZeBo, Roy and Jack to round out the Trail Blazers lineup.

The Trail Blazers still lead 82 - 75.

Jack and Sergio start fourth...
posted: at 7:56 PM

In an effort to maximize Portland's speed, Coach Nate has started the fourth quarter with both Jarrett Jack and Sergio Rodriguez.

Sergio has played the point for Portland, and flashed some more of his brilliance. After drawing a double-team on a pick-and-roll, Sergio found a wide open Martell Webster, who converted the pass into 3 Trail Blazer points.

Sergio has 6 assists on the night.

The Bucks, however, are still hanging around. They've cut the Trail Blazer lead to 9, 82 - 73.

One more to go...
posted: at 7:50 PM

As Blaze energizes the Rose Garden crowd with his acrobatic dunks, the Trail Blazers are ready to close up shop on the Milwaukee Bucks.

Randolph and Roy are tied at 19 points apiece for the team lead, while Jarrett Jack and Martell Webster have both had good games for Portland. Jack and Webster both have 10 points each.

With 3 quarters done, we're also 3 quarters of the way to free Chalupas! The Trail Blazers have 75 points against the Bucks 63.

Boykins for three...
posted: at 7:47 PM

The Trail Blazers, despite being in control for the length of the game, simply cannot put away the Milwaukee Bucks.

Boykins, leading the Bucks rally, proved that banks do open on Sunday with a three-pointer that clanked high off the backboard and then fell home.

The Bucks have cut the Trail Blazer lead to 12 points heading into the fourth quarter.

Trail Breakers rock the Rose Garden!
posted: at 7:43 PM

As good as the athletes are in the NBA, it's tough to compare them to the Trail Blazers break dance squad.

The Trail Breakers can balance their entire weight on one hand and then explode out of an impossible position into a set of flips, spins and twirls.

It'd be absolutely sweet to see some of the participants in this year's Slam Dunk competition include some of the Trail Breakers' moves in their dunks...

Get Jack'd!
posted: at 7:40 PM

After a couple shaky possessions, which were largely dictated by questionable calls, Jarrett Jack decided to take matters into his own hands...

The point guard rubbed off a tough Zach Randolph screen and then drove all the way to hole after the Bucks defense collapsed on ZeBo.

Jack has 10 points and 4 rebounds on the night.

Timeout to "Shoot for a Tundra"
posted: at 7:38 PM

Early in the third quarter, Coach Nate McMillan called a timeout to organize the Trail Blazers attack. It’s not so much that Portland was disorganized, but the Trail Blazers needed an excuse to do the Toyota “Shoot for a Tundra” Contest.

Tonight’s contestant took a 5 step running start and then let it fly from way behind the half-court line. Had he shot from a tad closer, he probably would have won a truck…

Portland starts second half...
posted: at 7:34 PM

It was tougher than expected, but Roy got things going early in the second half for the Trail Blazers.


After a quick switch on the pick-and-roll, Roy found himself one-on-one with Andrew Bogut, which is obviously a favorable match-up. As usual, Roy made quick work of his defender and nailed the jumper.

Half-time tribute to state champions...
posted: at 7:14 PM

Oregon has had one of the most exciting session of sports in high school history this year and the Trail Blazers have decided to celebrate this athletic achievement with a dodgeball tournament.

The tournament featured champions from football, cross country, soccer and volleyball...

At half time, Portland fans have every reason in the world to be excited. Not only are the Trail Blazers up 13, 58 - 45, but they've controlled nearly every aspect of the game from the get-go. Portland has out-rebounded the Bucks 24 - 17, dished more assists (14 - 6), blocked more shots (2 - 0), and turned the ball over fewer times (5 - 7).

Randolph leads all Trail Blazers with 13 points, but he has seen a lot of competition from Brandon Roy and Martell Webster. Roy has 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists, and Webster has lit up the Bucks for 10 points of his own.

In other news, congratulations to the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, who will be playing in this year's Super Bowl. The Colts and Peyton Manning finally beat Tom Brady and the Patriots in the AFC Championship game...

It's back to action for the Trail Blazers as they look to seal the deal against Milwaukee. 58 points down and only 42 left to go for free Chalupas!

Call him Brandon R.O.Y.
posted: at 7:12 PM

What makes a Rookie of the Year? The ability to score… The ability to pass… Rebound… Defend… Lead.

Brandon Roy does all of this for the Trail Blazers. No team has benefited more from one rookie than Portland, who finally have a player in the mold of Clyde Drexler and Scottie Pippen that can play nearly every position and play it well.

Roy most recently found a wide open Martell Webster for three-points. It’s always nice to see Webster cash in from three, but when Roy flashes his ability to draw a double-team and then dish out of it to a wide open player, the Rose Garden really gets rocking.

Webster... Martell Webster.
posted: at 7:11 PM

Did you see that!?!
Martell Webster has been electric tonight of the bench for the Trail Blazers. He started the quarter with a deep two, then stepped back and hit a three, and then for an encore hit a running lay-up over Patterson while also drawing a foul.

Webster has 7 points in the quarter.

mmmmm... Spanish Chocolate!
posted: at 7:03 PM

Sergio! Sergio! Sergio!

He’s a rookie out of Spain, but he plays like a veteran. Maybe it’s because he’s been a professional since he was 16 years old, or maybe he was born with it, but the kid can flat out play.

After having a drive stuffed by the Bucks, Sergio faked a pass to center Jamaal Magloire and then, out of nowhere, found a wide open Juan Dixon, who converted for two points.

... Start of the Second
posted: at 7:02 PM

Sergio, Webster, Dixon, Magloire and LaFrentz start the second quarter for the Trail Blazers…

This is a high energy lineup that will spread the floor and hit the three. Webster was the first Trail Blazer to draw blood in the second quarter with a long, long two pointer from the corner. Half an inch deeper and it would’ve been the Trail Blazers second three of the night.

End of one...
posted: at 7:00 PM

Heading into the second quarter, the Trail Blazers are controlling nearly every aspect of this match-up. Portland has 11 rebounds against 7 for the Bucks, and Zach Randolph and Brandon Roy have combined for 18 of the Trail Blazers 30 points.

Portland also has 7 assists, which is one of the biggest reasons they’ve outscored the Bucks so far. Milwaukee only has 2 assists and seems to be relying heavily on the one-on-one moves of Andrew Bogut.

During the first break of the game, Portland fans were treated to one of the most entertaining mini-games in Trail Blazers history: the dizzy bat lay-up. Contestants were required to run the length of the floor, spin around a waffle ball bat 15 times, then run back down the court and sink a lay-up. After struggling mightily to run in a straight line, the lone male contestant banked in a quick two to win a Roy for R.O.Y. tee-shirt.

Boykins and Sergio- Too Fast, too furious...
posted: at 6:58 PM

Sergio Rodriguez has checked in for the Trail Blazers and his match-up against Earl Boykins should be an exciting one to watch.

Boykins and Rodriguez are two of the fastest players in the NBA, so try not to blink!

We love Aldridge... Not Ruben.
posted: at 6:57 PM

After picking up a couple quick fouls, Joel Pryzbilla was replaced by LaMarcus Aldridge and the substitution immediately paid off dividends for the Trail Blazers.

Aldridge has hustled his way to 4 points, 1 rebound and dished a beautiful assist to Udoka, while also frustrating Bucks center Andrew Bogut.

Ruben Patterson has also subbed out for the Bucks after two quick fouls of his own. On his way to the bench, Portland fans hassled him into a technical foul, which may have relieved some of his frustration but also turned into a point for the Trail Blazers.

Milwaukee's on lockdown...
posted: at 6:53 PM

Full-court press and maximum pressure have really shut down the Bucks. Earl Boykins has been all but taken out of the game by Jarrett Jack, and Brandon Roy has forced a handful of turnovers with his tough, off-the-ball defense.

It’s all Trail Blazers early, 19 – 13.

Call the fireman!
posted: at 6:52 PM

After a slow start the Trail Blazers have lit the court on fire!!!

The Trail Blazers turned an Andrew Bogut turnover into a huge fast break lay-up for Ime Udoka. The play went Roy to Aldridge who then went around-the-back to Udoka for two.

5 minutes into the game and the Bucks already regret traveling to Portland…

Trail Blazers looking to cash in against the Bucks
posted: at 6:49 PM

The Trail Blazers are all set to get underway against an injury depleted Milwaukee Bucks roster who will be without high scoring shooting guard Michael Redd. Redd was the difference in the first match-up between the two teams, as he was able to control overtime and send the Trail Blazers back to Portland with a loss.

Tonight, however, should be a different story. Ex-Trail Blazer Ruben Patterson is probably the most dangerous player that Portland will face, but the Trail Blazers must also be weary of newly acquired point guard Earl Boykins.

Boykins was a dangerous, change-of-pace guard for the Denver Nuggets and his speed could cause problems for Jarrett Jack and Sergio Rodriguez.

The Trail Blazers have to be excited to return to action after an emotional contest in Phoenix, which was nearly one of the biggest upsets of the season. Phoenix had won 11 straight, but nearly had the streak snapped by the feisty Trail Blazers.

Once again, it will be up to Zach Randolph and rookie point guard Brandon Roy to lead the Trail Blazers. Randolph played an emotionally charged game against Phoenix and should carry that momentum into tonight’s game.

Jarrett Jack could also be an X-factor for the Trail Blazers. Jack’s size and speed combination will cause match-up problems against the much smaller Earl Boykins.
