CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Portland Trail Blazers pulled off a remarkable comeback on Monday night, rallying from an 18-point deficit in the final six minutes of regulation and beating the Charlotte Bobcats 118-112 in overtime. The Trail Blazers trailed 92-74 with 5:17 left in the fourth quarter before erupting to outscore Charlotte 28-10 to close out regulation. They tied the game at 102-102 on a 3-pointer by Luke Babbitt with 22.8 seconds left, then got into overtime when Charlotte's Kemba Walker missed a jumper from the side at the regulation buzzer. In overtime, Babbitt's 3-pointer with 1:45 remaining gave the Blazers a working margin at 110-106, and the Blazers pushed the lead up to seven from there. The victory allowed Portland (8-10) to win for the second time in three days on this seven-game Eastern road trip. The Bobcats (7-9) lost their fourth straight. They were looking to surpass last season's entire win total, when they were an NBA-record-w...

J.J. Hickson was on the cover of the first Cavs Zine. Nothing can ever happen to change that.
We had high hopes for J.J. as a Cavalier once too, but sometimes the NBA gods have other plans.
He ended up in Sacramento for a time last season and things were looking pretty bad. Good news for Hickson is that he's now settled into a new home as a productive member of the Portland...
Byron Mullens tossed LaMarcus Aldridge on one of the more nasty posters we have seen this year. Wait, what?
You heard that correctly. During today’s game between the Trailblazers and the Bobcats the seven-foot center out of Ohio State took flight from inside the free throw line and soared over Aldridge to complete the one-handed jack hammer. Quite the athletic play from the...
The Charlotte Bobcats have not had much to celebrate in their nine-year existence. They have posted only one winning season and gave their fans (what few of them there are) reason to get excited earlier this season when the ‘Cats won six of eight. Since then, somebody must have reminded them that they are the Bobcats, because they have lost four straight.
With that in mind, we...

Along with the Charlotte Bobcats B.J. Mullens is one of the biggest surprises on this young NBA season. Last night in a game against Portland Mullens threw down a monster dunk. This is one of the best dunks in the NBA so far this season. Harrison Barnes still has the dunk of the year so far though.
Mullens attempted a three pointer but he missed it and got his own rebound. He then...
Check out ya boy Byron Mullens of the Charlotte Bobcats flying over top of LaMarcus Aldridge and dunking all over his face last night. This is a seven footer I might add. Never seen anything like it. Aldridge didn't seem like he wanted to go for a block and settled for trying to take a charge, but no go on that. The dunk was good to go and it clearly sits at the top of...
The Portland Trail Blazers' bench has helped the team pick up its scoring - and get back into the win column - after a rough start to their longest trip of the season.
Ending that stretch with another strong effort could be asking a lot with the defensive-minded Indiana Pacers up next.
Portland looks to close out its seven-game trip with a third consecutive victory Wednesday...
Last night, Byron Mullens (better known as B.J. to you college basketball fans) had what might be the best dunk of the NBA season so far. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Wait, that dorky, weird looking white guy had the dunk of the year?‘ Yes and you should watch it. Now.
Mullens tosses up a three from the top of the key. The shot ends up bricking horribly but Mullens was in...
Kemba Walker helped the fans who attended Friday's game win tickets to an upcoming Charlotte Bobcats game. See how he did it.
We have all heard the phrase before: somebody being "wise beyond their years". I've been thinking about this phrase the past couple days.
This current Portland Trail Blazers team has taken incredible heat from the media on being young, inexperienced and unprepared to compete in the league right now. But I would like to argue that this team is a lot closer than a...
As we get ready for a Monday night of NBA hoops, Charlotte Bobcats center Byron Mullens has been a nice surprise over the last two seasons.Earlier tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers, Mullens decided to put LaMarcus Aldridge on a poster with this one-handed dunk: (Courtesy of The Point Forward)
Blake Griffin, Gerald Green, DeMar DeRozan are all considered some of the best dunkers in the NBA but should Bobcats' Byron Mullens be added to the list?
If his dunk on Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge is any indication, then the answer is yes.
During the Bobcats-Blazers game, Mullens went top-shelf on Aldridge and showed off not only some major hops, but will certainly have...
Things haven't been going well for Portland. They are cursed with injuries and their team always seems to have a let down in store. Things can't be worse than Byron "Don't call me BJ" Mullens dunks on you. Hopefully the Blazers do the right thing and trade LaMarcus!
Before most of Wednesday night's game have even completed, I'm pretty sure that Charlotte Bobcats guard Kemba Walker is going to get the award for the shot of the night.Watch as Mr. Walker drives to the hoop against the New York Knicks and somehow gets the shot to fall with an over-the-shoulder toss:
