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...

The Hickson returns, helps Trail Blazers beat Cavs in double OT

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...

B.J. Mullens throws it down on LaMarcus Aldridge

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.

Byron Mullens Flying Dunk on LaMarcus Aldridge's Face (Video)

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...

Video: Bobcats' Mullens has to be invited to dunk contest

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?

Portland Trail Blazers: Wise Beyond Their Years

We have all heard the phrase before: somebody being "wise beyond their years". I've been thinking about this phrase the past couple days.

But I would like to argue that this team is a lot closer than a...
