A tough loss...
posted: Sunday, February 24, 2008 at 5:24 PM

The Trail Blazers fought hard and played well, but it wasn't enough against the NBA's best. The Trail Blazers lost to the Celtics 112-102, as they lost a 17-point second quarter lead.

The Trail Blazers were led by 25 points from Travis Outlaw, who stepped up in the absence of Brandon Roy for much of the second half.

Jarrett Jack added 17 points. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 14 points and Steve Blake had 12 points and seven assists.

The Celtics were led by 30 points from Paul Pierce, who also had seven rebounds and five assists. Ray Allen scored 19 points and James Posey scored 15. Rajon Rondo also scored 15 points and led all players with eight assists.

The Trail Blazers played hard, but allowed the Celtics to shoot 58% from the field.

A tough loss to swallow, but the Celtics are one of the league's best teams.

The Trail Blazers head to Los Angeles to play the Lakers and Clippers on Tuesday and Wednesday, so let's hope California is good to our Rip City boys.

I am serious doubting Nate McMillan’s coaching abilities. Come on coach. Step outside of the box when our starters or white unit are not performing well and give some quality minutes to McRoberts, Wafer or even Miles. Let’s stir things up a bit.
I am a season ticket holder and it is far too frustrating to watch our Blazers lose these games that we could have or should have won.
I have been notified that the blazers office would like confirmation for next season tickets....
I’ll have to get back with you.

Channing Frye is searching for his game. He lost it somewhere in New York between Central Park West and 38th street. An entire article has been written about this loss. Check it out at:

Channing Frye lost his game in New York somewhere between Central park West and 38th. It's not funny. Frye and the NYPD have been looking for his game for quite some time. An entire article has been written about this subject.
