Blazers win and wave goodbye to the Rose Garden
posted: Tuesday, April 15, 2008 at 10:31 PM

Sorry for the abrupt disruption in blogging. The wireless connection in the Rose Garden went the way of the dodo tonight. I hope you found one of the many other live blogs of tonight's game if you were relying on my updates. Again, my apologies.

After a shaky start, the home side turned it on and ended up pulling away in a 113-91 victory in front of a sellout crowd. Seven Blazers scored in double figures, which I believe is a first this season. My main man James Jones caught fire from beyond the arc, going 6-for-7 with the one miss being a desperation attempt at the shot clock buzzer that he wouldn't have otherwise taken.

LaMarcus Aldridge fouled out, Sergio Rodriguez threw two consecutive alley-oops to Travis Outlaw, Josh McRoberts and Von Wafer got some playing time, and the Rose Garden crowd gave standing ovations to anyone who left the game in the last three minutes. Not a bad way to end the home schedule.

So that's that. It's been a heck of a good time watching this team come together. They'll travel to Phoenix tonight to finish off the season against the Suns tomorrow. Nate McMillan's squad is guaranteed no worse than a .500 record this season, which I think just about anyone would have taken at the start of the campaign. After the last few seasons, it's nice to actually surpass expectations.

Let's do it again next season.
