10 triumphs makes Trail Blazers the toast of the town
posted: Friday, December 21, 2007 at 9:32 PM

The Trail Blazers have won ten straight games after a tremendous fourth quarter comeback against the Denver Nuggets. Portland won 99-96, but trailed by seven going into the final period.

Martell Webster led the Trail Blazers with 19 points. LaMarcus Aldidge had 18 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Brandon Roy also scored 18 points and dished out five assists.

The heroes of the fourth quarter were Travis Outlaw and James Jones. Outlaw scored 11 of his 12 points in the final stanza and was all over the floor with his hustle play. Jones scored 14 points, seven in the fourth quarter, and was a steady scoring option.

Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson each scored 34 points for the Nuggets, but it just wasn't enough to stop these Trail Blazers.

The Trail Blazers will look for an eleventh straight victory on Christmas day against their local rivals, the Seattle Supersonics. See you there!

There have been three real teams in Blazer history- one brought home an NBA Championship banner, the second won 2 Western Conference titles, and this one is destined for greatness. Pay attention, folks, because we're awfully lucky to be watching it.

Great zone
posted: at 7:27 PM

The Nuggets are playing a very small lineup, with the biggest player at 6'8". The Trail Blazers played a zone against it, and immediately drew a charge. Denver is without Marcus Camby, Nene and Kenyon Martin, so Portland should be able to take advantage inside. The Trail Blazers lead 21-20 with 2:45 remaining in the quarter.

The Nuggets will start Carmelo Anthony, Linas Klezia, Jelani McCoy, Anthony Carter and Allen Iverson. The Trail Blazers will start Martell Webster, LaMarcus Aldridge, Joel Przybilla, Brandon Roy and Steve Blake.

With Klezia starting for Denver, LaMarcus will have to spend a lot of time out on the wing playing defense. Klezia is an impressive 3-point shooter and is averaging 10.3 points per game this year, mostly off the bench.

Balance is best
posted: at 6:43 PM

It's no surprise that this winning streak has come with impressive play from the bench. T.O. and James Jones have provided a great scoring punch, Sergio brings the energy, and Channing and Raef have brought size and toughness. If the 2nd unit can play tonight like it has the last two weeks, 10 wins is a distinct possibility.

A tough test
posted: at 6:33 PM

Division games are always hard-fought. The Nuggets and Trail Blazers have split their two games so far this season, both in Denver. The most recent came in the midst of this amazing Portland winning streak. The Trail Blazers won 116-105, led by B. Roy's 26 points and 11 assists. It also featured Channing Frye's best game as a Trail Blazer - he scored 20 points. Denver won't go away easily, however. They feature two of the top scorers in the league: Carmelo Anthony and Allen Iverson.

Here we go again. The Trail Blazers take on their Northwest Division rival Denver Nuggets tonight. The Rose Garden is filling up earlier than usual, hardly a surprise with the way the Trail Blazers are playing. Nine wins in a row ranks among the longest for any team in the NBA this season.
