Weekly Portland Trail Blazers video highlights and analysis – Week 9

A Short Week As a special holiday present, the Portland Trail Blazers were given the gift of a short week leading up to (and following) Christmas.

Trail Blazers’ Playoff Prediction

At this point in the season, I don’t think that anyone is doubting that the Blazers will make the playoffs. The real question is, what seed will they acquire? At the beginning of the season, predictions were that the Blazers had greatly improved, yet only to build a 7th seed team. Now the Blazers have beat every major threat in the NBA except the reigning champions, the Miami Heat...

Damian Lillard dishes between-the-legs pass through Tyreke Evans

Personally, I don’t like the term “Nutmeg” to describe a between-the-legs pass but they are pretty fun to watch. During yesterday’s New Orleans Pelicans/Portland Trail Blazers game, Blazers star guard Damian Lillard decided to show his passing fancy. Watch as he finds Wesley Matthews for a three-pointer with a pass that goes between-the-legs of Tyreke Evans: *** Lillard...

Terry Stotts: A new System

Terry Stotts is in his second season as the Portland Trail Blazers head coach. In his first season as head coach, the Blazers recorded a disappointing 33 wins. This season however, the team has 24 wins in 30 games. Last season’s disappointing record, however, cannot be pinned on Stotts, as the Blazers had the worst bench that had been seen in the NBA in years. This season Stotts...

Evans, Holiday carry Pelicans over Blazers

Holiday, acquired in a draft-night trade with...
