A Great, Great Win.
posted: Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 9:30 PM

Once more -- a GREAT team win tonight. Just fabulous.

Trail Blazers finish five players in double figures, led by Zach Randolph’s 26. Randolph also set a new season high with 17 rebounds.

Zach got a huge ovation as he sank the last two free throws to ice the victory, and there were certainly some chants of “All Star” mixed in with those for Chalupas.

Trail Blazers controlled the tempo all night, and this time it paid off as they downed the Nuggets, 100-91.

Brandon Roy had 25, eight assists and four boards, and Jarrett Jack had 14 points and dished eight assists as well.

Should be interesting when the Trail Blazers travel to Denver this Friday…

Looking forward to it.

Thanks for your comments.

It's a free throw shooting contest now, and the Trail Blazers have got this one locked up. Good stuff.

JARRETT FOR THREE!
posted: at 9:26 PM

On a put-back. Quickly too.

BUT JARRET JACK NAILS A THREE!

That one certainly makes up for the missed free throw. Six point Trail Blazer lead with 33.3 to go. Denver calls for timeout.

If Carmello weren't on the opposing team, I'd say that's the dagger. But still, it's darn close.

Need a Bucket Here
posted: at 9:23 PM

Portland's failed to convert their last few times down, and could really use one here. It might just be the dagger...

Nene fouls Randolph, but that will only reset the shot clock to 14.

Roy misses... But Jack grabs the rebound! He darts to the line and is fouled! Jarrett will shoot two...

MISSES the first!

Hits the second... Oooh, you'd hope that Jarrett, the team's best free throw shooter, would've iced both of those shots. Still, five point lead and 58.5 seconds left to go...

91-86, Portland

Anthony Finds a Way
posted: at 9:21 PM

Covered on both sides, Carmello somehow manges a reverse layup that looked impossible -- if I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't believe it.

90-84, Portland.

Z-Bo Makes it Eight!

His jumper gives Portland a nice eight point cushion with 2:26 left to go.

Fans are on their feet, and this one's looking sweet...

Trail Blazers in the Penalty
posted: at 9:16 PM

This is big. For the next almost four minutes Denver will be shooting free throws on every Portland foul.

The whistles just haven't been kind to Portland this Wednesday night -- they've racked up 27 to Denver's 10.

ALDRIDGE DIGS OUT ANOTHER and puts it back for two more.

Camby answers.

86-82, Portland.

Wait! Roy slashes and floats through the lane for two more!

88-82, Portland.

Next Couple of Minutes Crucial
posted: at 9:08 PM

Portland's playing with all the scrap, hustle and heart that getting this win will require. They've done a superb job of slowing the tempo to their pace, and if they can just keep it up for another 5:33 it should equal a 'W'.

That said, Ime Udoka is going to have to do everything in his power to limit Carmello Anthony. In these last few minutes Anthony is attacking more furiously, and doesn't figure to go down without a fight. The guy can score in bunches, and when he gets going, sometimes there is nothing a defender can do.

Out of the timeout it's Roy for THREE!

Carmello on the other end makes it 82-76, Trail Blazers.

LaMarcus digs it out
posted: at 8:59 PM

After corraling the offensive board the young rookie executed a picture perfect jump hook to give the Trail Blazers a two point lead.

On the next possession Brandon Roy made it four.

74-70, Trail Blazers. Nine minutes left. Timout Denver.

Segio Down...
posted: at 8:54 PM

Looks like he twisted an ankle... limping off court under his own power, though clearly in pain.

Lots of "oh no's" coming from the crowd, but at first glance it doesn't appear to be too serious... Updates on his condition when they come...

66-66 after an amazingly lucky tip-in by Eduardo Najera.

And with that, we're headed to the fourth tied...

Fouls Fouls and Fouls
posted: at 8:44 PM

Slowing this game down. Lots of them have been questionable, and lots have garnered their fare share of "boo's".

Zach Randolph has pulled down a phenomenal 15 rebounds -- this is no small feat, especially when you consider the rebounding talent Denver has (Nene, Camby, and Najera).

Portland up four, with less than a minute to go.

One For SportsCenter!

My goodness Jarrett -- we'll see you tonight on the top 10!

After a good foul by Carmello Anthony, Jarrett Jack powers through, twising and tossing the ball behind his head for the reverse. Beautiful. And one.

60-56, Portland.

That's what the announcer says and you couldn't ask for much more. Ok, maybe a backcourt steal by Zach that turns into an easy two for Brandon Roy.

It's getting louder....

57-54, Portland

Hits Z-Bo underneath for an easy two.

And on the next possession Zach steps out and swishes the perimeter 'J'.

Steve Blake Channeling Iverson
posted: at 8:25 PM

Not so much in his play, but with that compression sleeve he's got on.

But hen Denver made their last visit, Blake did more than his share to help his team win. In that game Blake set a new career-high with 25 points on January 14th.

Tonight the former Trail Blazer has no points to go with three boards and two assists.

All tied up at 44.

40-42 at the Half
posted: at 8:06 PM

For those of you wondering, Allen Iverson is not in uniform, nor is he on the bench in a suit. It's anyone's guess at the moment if he's even in Portland.

Good first half for the Trail Blazers, who are down only two. Zach Randolph has quietly, and I might add amazingly, put together a double double in the first half. He's got 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Carmello Anthony leads all scorers with 13.

Portland's got the game just about where they want it -- they controll the pace. Add that to the home court advantage of a filled up Rose Garden and we've got a good chance of witnessing an upset here tonight. It's going to be important that the Trail Blazers come out and start the third fired up -- we know Denver has hurt them that way before.

Keep those comments coming!

Jack Sneaks In!

Ripping the ball from the unwitting J.R. Smith in the backcourt. After passing out, Jack's teammates found him and he found a floater in the lane for two.

38 All.

Four on the Floor
posted: at 7:57 PM

All Trail Blazers starters are back in, minus Joel Przybilla -- LaMarcus is in his place at center.

Interesting that, after Joel's wicked defensive play early, that he has yet to return to action. That said, LaMarcus has been pretty efficient offensively. He's got seven points and four rebounds.

I suppose you've got to assume that coach McMillan figures that it's going to take more offense to handle this high-octane Nuggets team.

Martell's Three...
posted: at 7:54 PM

...ties it all up at 30.

To goblazers_18: it's loud and pretty wild in here, and I'm not just saying that. I'm not sure if we're in sellout territory, but certainly attendance has got to be in the top five (or real close to it) of all games this season. That said, it's too bad Allen Iverson isn't with the team tonight due to a sprained ankle.

well i wish i could have been there!!! figures i go to almost all games and not this one. Well i hope the blazers can kick there butt, they should. There is no iverson so that should open up an easy win for the blazers. I sure iverson is going to be out the whole game, i heard it was possible of some playing time for him. or is he in a suit? thanks for taking the time to comment back.

Nuggets Back Up
posted: at 7:44 PM

Scoring has slowed down on both sides, and Denver is up 30-26.

Boo's rain down on the officials who just whilsted Martell for a questionable offensive foul and Sergio right after for a ticky-tack hand check.

But back to the slower pace, which favors Portland. It is basically the same game plan that coach McMillan used effectively in Phoenix (where Portland ALMOST stole the win). Same idea here against the running and gunning Nuggets; reduce the number of shots and grind the game out with rebounds, hustle plays and tough 'D'.

Oh Ime!
posted: at 7:39 PM

"No Bueno," Segio says!

On the last two possessions Sergio has set up Ime perfectly -- once for an open layup, then with a behind the head pass for a three -- but Udoka couldn't get the ball to stay down.

Two assists Rodriguez would certainly like to have, esecially that considering he should've made the rookie all-star team as well... Next time.

26-22, Trail Blazers.

Portland quickly turned around a slow start to take a 24-22 lead into the second quarter. Great resiliance after coming out so slow...

Would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to post your comments. Where you at? What you thinking?

Two-handed tomahawk jam from Jarrett Jack!

Get out of the way.

And on the next possession, the rookie hits a 18-footer! Guess who's taking the rookie all-star game selection snub and using it as motivation?

With Ime Udoka's two free throws (fouled on a fast break) the Trail Blazers are up two.

But wow... Did Nene just about break the rim on that dunk...

And LaMarcus answers from the baseline!

Blazing Back

Now, I wont say 'I told you so', but the Trail Blazers are right back in this game. Coach's timeout did the trick. Portland is getting stops and making baskets.

12-10, Denver.

J.R. Smith Hitting
posted: at 7:18 PM

Smith's outside jumper is looking good. He just hit two deep shots, including a three.

That put the Trail Blazers down 12-4, and forced coach McMillan to call timeout. But there's no reason to panic, as it seems these early runs have gone against Portland somewhat frequently of late, and after the timeout the team usually calms down and gets back into their offensive sets.

And while it was somewhat of a broken play, the Trail Blazers got there two on a Joel Pryzbilla jam. The Thrilla is certainly energized tonight -- and what's this? ANOTHER block.

Go Joel, Go!

Joel's Second!
posted: at 7:15 PM

That's two monster blocks for Joel in the first three minutes. One on a dunk attempt by Marcus Camby, and another on the high-flyer J.R. Smith. Way to establish Portland's inside defensive presence early...

7-4, Nuggets.

Trail Blazers and Nuggets, NOW!
posted: at 7:11 PM

We're just about ready for tip-off... But first Brandon Roy met Paul Allen at center court to present a all-star game ball to commemorate Brandon's inclusion on the Rookie Team. There was another ball, which Brandon signed, but he sent that one in to the crowd to a lucky fan.

So here we go -- after three games on the the road, which featured tough wins and some equally tough losses, the Trail Blazers return home to host Camello and his Nuggets.

Allen Iverson, who is nursing a sprained ankle, will not play tonight.
