  2. Pau Gasol to return, start for Lakers Tuesday vs. Portland next to Chris Kaman

    Apr 1, 2014, 2:58 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Remember when Mike D’Antoni just played small and forced you to adjust to him? He doesn’t have the horses for that in Los Angeles so he will go big against Portland with Pau Gasol retuning and starting next to Chris Kaman.

  3. Can Portland players name the Seven Dwarfs? Robin Lopez can. (VIDEO)

  4. LeBron James with game-winning lay-up, Chris Bosh preserves it with block (VIDEO)

    Mar 25, 2014, 12:08 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Miami Heat

    Miami needed a win and LeBron James was going to make sure they got it. He came out gunning (15 first half shots) and behind him the Heat led most of the way against the Trail Blazers in the second half. Miami was up by 7 in the final two minutes… then gave it all…

  5. Blazers’ Thomas Robinson has left patella strain, is day-to-day

    Feb 26, 2014, 10:57 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Portland Trail Blazers

    Thomas Robinson has been getting extra run with the rash of Blazers injuries up front — including All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge — but now he is joining their ranks. Robinson suffered a left patella strain during the first half of Portland’s win in Denver Tuesday night, reports Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com. He is listed as is…

    Jan 22, 2014, 1:31 AM EDT

    Reggie Jackson LaMarcus Aldridge

    For much of the season, this is the kind of game the Portland Trail Blazers have won — every close game they seemed to be the team making the big shots, getting the big steals, they had the players who stepped up. That includes the last time Portland and Oklahoma City met — the Thunder…

  8. Blazers’ Robin Lopez defends Seahawks’ Richard Sherman (VIDEO)

    Jan 20, 2014, 2:40 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns, Game 4

    Sunday belonged to the NFL as far as most sports fans were concerned, as the conference champions were decided and the Super Bowl matchup was set between the Broncos and the Seahawks. Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman made headlines with his excited postgame rant on live television, but Robin Lopez, big man for the Blazers and…

  10. Report: Pelicans shopping around Eric Gordon, his huge contract

    Jan 10, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans  v Indiana Pacers

    There was a time three years ago when Eric Gordon looked like the best young two guard in the NBA, a guy on the rise who could be a key cornerstone of a franchise. Then came a lot of injuries (and a lot of questions about rehab, and questions about his desire to play in…

  11. Robin Lopez gets defensive when compared to twin Brook Lopez

    Dec 20, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Brooklyn Nets

    Robin Lopez and Brook Lopez do not look alike, at least not completely. Robin, the Trail Blazers’ center sports a wild afro. His twin brother, Brook, the Nets’ center, has a closer crop. But is that why they don’t look alike now? Did Robin grow out his hair to look distinct from Brook? Robin, via…

  12. LaMarcus Aldridge, Robin Lopez try to sell you a car (VIDEO)

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    One of the best parts of NBA League Pass is getting to see the quirky local commercial in cities around the nation. From Pizza Guy in Sacramento to Native American casinos all over this land, there are some amusing advertisements. Like this one from Portland featuring LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez. Brilliant. Hat tip to…

  13. Report: Rockets stepping up efforts to move Omer Asik

    Dec 6, 2013, 2:19 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    I would say the fact Houston has put Omer Asik on the trade block is the worst kept secret in the NBA, except it’s not a secret. Everybody knows it. The only questions are when he gets moved and where he lands. Talks have not progressed all that quickly because while other teams come in…

  14. Shaun Livingston drives, dunks on Robin Lopez (VIDEO)

    Nov 18, 2013, 9:24 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

    Because of the road he had to travel to this point, I love seeing Shaun Livingston making plays. And he made a play during the “we can’t miss” first quarter for the Brooklyn Nets Monday (they shot 73.7 percent for the quarter) — he sets up Damian Lillard, drives past him then rises up and…

  15. Trail Blazers headed toward same trouble as last season

    Nov 18, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Terry Stotts, Damian Lillard

    I was the only member of this site’s staff to predict the Trail Blazers would make the playoffs. Now, Portland is 8-2, the NBA’s third-best record behind only the Spurs and Pacers. Time to gloat? Not quite. The Trail Blazers started 20-15 last season, heavily relying on their starting lineup. At that point of the…

  16. The Extra Pass: Five observations from the East and Monday’s recaps

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    After a busy Monday night in the NBA, let’s swing around the Eastern Conference for a few observations. Indiana: If Roy Hibbert keeps getting that “verticality” respect from officials, it’s goodnight, Irene time for all of the other the Defensive Player of the Year candidates. Look at these numbers: Per 36 minutes on his career: 2.6…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  18. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New Orleans Pelicans

    Oct 25, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    Last season: New Orleans final season as the Hornets wasn’t pretty. Eric Gordon was out much of the year, Anthony Davis showed promise but looked like a rookie at times, Austin Rivers looked like a mistake, they blew a 25-point lead to the Lakers, and they ended the season with 27 wins without even a…

  19. Thomas Robinson with impressive putback dunk (VIDEO)

    Oct 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Thomas Robinson

    Thomas Robinson is going to get a chance in Portland as part of a revamped Trail Blazers bench. We’ll see what he does with that chance. What he did with it Sunday was throw down a big putback dunk, pretty much pushing teammate Robin Lopez out of the way to do it. Still, this was…

  20. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Portland Trail Blazers

    Oct 10, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Hornets Trail Blazers Basketball

    Last Season: The Blazers spent the first half of the season threatening for a playoff spot, but one of the worst benches in NBA history ultimately sunk the team’s chances. Damian Lillard‘s scoring prowess made him the fourth unanimous Rookie of the Year winner in NBA history, and it simulatenously provided hope that Portland’s current core…

  21. Brook, Robin Lopez are shopping a television script

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez

    But what they really want to do is direct… and maybe win a few basketball games. As part of their summer the Lopez brothers — Brook Lopez of the Nets and Robin Lopez of the Trail Blazers — have written the pilot for an animated action/adventure/comedy television show they are trying to produce. I’m serious.…

  23. LaMarcus Aldridge admits to extreme frustration, but not trade request

    Aug 31, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    LaMarcus Alrdridge earned a second consecutive All-Star appearance last year, but it essentially went to waste as his Portland Trail Blazers finished 33-49 in spite of their big man’s best efforts. That led to multiple reports saying Aldridge was looking to be moved this summer, but the player himself denied everything once the original report…
