Depleted But Not Done, Portland Trail Blazers Need Lillard Time, All The Time

The first two games of the Portland Trail Blazers first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies put their issues under a magnifying glass that told harsh truths. Their depleted roster has result in heavy burdens on the shoulders of LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard, not nearly enough firepower on the wings to combat Memphis’s stodgy defense on both stars, a bench unit that...

Blazers G Damian Lillard says adversity part of the game

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Last season Damian Lillard became part of the highlight reel for the playoffs with a buzzer-beating 3-pointer that catapulted the Trail Blazers out of the opening round for the first time in 14 years.

Thoughts For Game Three Of The Portland Trail Blazers / Memphis Grizzlies Series

Before we get to the Portland Trail Blazers’ Game 3 against the Memphis Grizzlies tomorrow, a thought about the postseason in general, and this year’s first round in particular. Last year, all but one series went at least six games, with five of them stretching to the most exciting 48 minutes of basketball in the NBA, Game 7. One of the series that did not reach the fateful seventh...

Major Adjustments Needed As Portland Trail Blazers Head Home For Game 3

I don’t think I’m breaking any news here when I say that the first two games of the Portland Trail Blazers opening round playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies could have gone a little better for Terry Stotts and his crew. In fact, one might even argue that, with the possible exception of the first quarter of Game 2, both games were an unmitigated disaster from start to...

Calm Down – This Portland Trail Blazers Season Was Defined By Injury

The Portland Trail Blazers were lit up in Memphis. Pounded on Sunday, then again on Wednesday. They return home down two games in the series lost by a combined 29 points. What’s been said, written about, and thought about in the aftermath of two of the worst games in franchise playoff history has been ugly. Blazer Mania? Right now, it’s more Blazer Hysteria. You know. You’ve...

Damian Lillard Will Not Quit On The Portland Trail Blazers

The last playoff game in Memphis didn’t go well. Neither did the first. That’s the NBA. Teams click, then they don’t, and everyone finds a player to blame. In Portland that player is Damian Lillard.

Nicolas Batum and Portland face the music in Memphis

I’m pretty sure nobody really thinks Nicolas Batum meant to hurt anybody with his recent motivational message that happened to include an inflammatory remark about Spanish players. It was a joke.

On Sunday, it’s fair to say that the Portland Trail Blazers, to steal a quaint English phrase, caught ol’ barney off the Memphis Grizzlies Sunday. The starters on both teams struggled, but when the Blazers’ thin bench came in, Beno Udrih of the Grizzlies spat fire and burped ice, draining his first seven shots and keying a Grizzlies run that put Portland away before halftime...

Portland Trail Blazers Home Ticket Prices Dwarf Prices At FedEx Forum

With a season-ending injury to Wesley Matthews, the Portland Trail Blazers knew any playoff series would have to be won by their two stars, LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard. Aldridge scored enough points, 32, but it took a lot of shots to get there, shooting 13-for-34 from the field. Lillard, quite frankly, put up a dud and as a result, the Blazers trail 1-0 in their first-round...
