There's a first time for everything
posted: Wednesday, November 21, 2007 at 9:30 PM

Martell missed a three, and the Nets gathered the rebound and ran out the clock. The Trail Blazers lose their first home game of the season, 106-101.

Brandon Roy led the Trail Blazers with 25 points, but 21 of those came in the first half. Channing and LaMarcus kept Portland in it with fantastic second halves.

The Nets were led by Jason Kidd's 90th career triple-double. He scored 12 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 13 assists.

Richard Jefferson led the Nets with 30 points, 17 coming in the second half. But the real key for the Nets was Bostjan Nachbar. He scored 13 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter and was on fire from deep.

The Trail Blazers will look to regain their winning form on Friday night at the Rose Garden when they take on the Sacramento Kings.

Don't miss it!

Oh so close

Nachbar missed a three with under 10 seconds to play, but Jason Kidd tracked down the rebound and was fouled. He hit two free throws, and the Nets now lead 106-101. The Trail Blazers will need a miracle to win this one.

I know the team is young, but the officials make way too many bad calls. Everyone knows about young players and home court advantage. I just think that the officials should not have the ability to change the outcome of the game and they too often do. They also should be accountable for bad calls but we all know they are not.

What to watch for
posted: at 7:05 PM

Jamaal Magloire makes his return to Portland tonight.

Steve Blake will look to keep is shooting touch going. He scored a season-high 14 points against the Bobcats on Monday and hit 4-of-5 from three-point range.

Channing Frye will look to top his best game of the season. Channing had 9 points and 8 rebounds on Monday.

Keep an eye on Nets power forward Sean Williams. He's an incredible athlete and is already one of the best shot blockers in the league.

How to stop the Kidd from having fun
posted: at 6:49 PM

Kidd was coached by Nate McMillan over the summer when he was playing point guard for the national team and Nate was assistant coaching. Let's see what Nate tries to do to stop the man with 89 career triple-doubles.

Finally back home...
posted: at 6:39 PM

The Trail Blazers are back in the Rose Garden after dropping their last four games on the road. Tonight they take on the New Jersey Nets, who are led by surefire hall-of-fame point guard Jason Kidd. The Nets come in with a 4-7 record, the same as the Trail Blazers.

LaMarcus and Brandon will look to rally the troops to get another home win and maintain their undefeated record at the Rose Garden.

The Nets have fallen on even harder times than the Trail Blazers of late. The Nets have lost six straight games after a 4-1 start to the year. They've been without last season's leading scorer, Vince Carter, for the last five games due to a sprained right ankle. He is scheduled to come off the bench tonight.

Josh McRoberts will have the chance to make his Rose Garden debut tonight, as he was activated during the road trip. He saw his first NBA action in Monday's loss to the Bobcats.
