ESPN just referred to Travis as "Bo" Outlaw.

What's it going to take to get this guy some recognition?!?!

The announcer, however, just corrected himself...

Can B-Roy turn it on?
posted: at 6:20 PM

Brandon has scored just four points so far and is shooting just 2-11 from the field. His offense has been consistently great during this win streak, so he'll need to get going.

Update: Brandon hits a jumper along the baseline for Portland's first points of the half.

Stats update
posted: at 6:10 PM

The Trail Blazers are certainly being helped by Seattle's inability to convert from the foul line. The Sonics have hit just three-of-seven from the stripe.

Portland needs to keep Nick Collison off the glass. The Seattle forward has eight rebounds, including four on the offensive side.

The Trail Blazers lead the Sonics 10-2 on 2nd chance points.

LaMarcus and Brandon each have two fouls, so they will finish the second half on the bench. It shouldn't be a problem, as the Portland bench has scored 25 of the team's 44 points.

Marquee Match-up
posted: at 5:04 PM

The battle to watch will be at shooting guard between Brandon Roy and Kevin Durant. Roy is the reigning NBA rookie of the year and Durant is the front-runner for the award this season. Durant has a 3-inch height advantage, but Roy is older, stronger and faster. Both players average just under 20 points per game, with Roy averaging 19.1 and Durant averaging 19.9, respectively.

Local ties
posted: at 4:47 PM

Trail Blazers head coach Nate McMillan played for Seattle from 1986-1998 and coached the team from 2000-2005.

Brandon Roy and Martell Webster are both Seattle natives and played against each other in high school. Roy also went to college at the University of Washington.

Seattle point guard Luke Ridnour played his collegiate basketball at the University of Oregon.

The personal ties between these two teams even overshadow the close proximity of the two cities, making this game a surefire thriller.

Christmas present for Rip City
posted: at 3:53 PM

Hey there Trail Blazer fans. Here we are on Christmas and the Trail Blazers have won an NBA-high ten games in a row coming into tonight. Can B-Roy, LaMarcus and the rest of the Trail Blazers give Rip City the perfect gift? A win tonight over local rivals Seattle would bring the Trail Blazers to .5 games behind Denver in the Northwest Division.

This match-up lost quite a bit of its luster when Greg went down for the season. But now this game is even more important than draft pick #1 vs. draft pick #2 because Kevin Durant and the SuperSonics are in the path of the Trail Blazer winning streak. Don't expect Seattle to gift wrap this game: Durant and the Sonics will not take this rivalry game lightly.

Look for big contributions off the bench from Travis Outlaw, James Jones, Jarrett Jack, Sergio Rodriguez and Channing Frye. The Trail Blazers' second unit is one of the best in the league and has been one of the biggest reasons for the team's continued success.

So let's go Trail Blazers! We got snow in Portland on Christmas, but all we really want is eleven in a row.
