    Warriors guard might be bit biased when it comes to rating 3-point shooters

  2. Trail Blazers, Hawks, Magic have interest in Greg Monroe

    Take Portland, willing to offer a sign-and-trade, most seriously

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trailblazers - Game Four

    This series has been too much fun to have it end quickly, but Portland leads 3-1 now after and overtime win.

  5. Blazers’ Wes Matthews warns reporter after 30-point loss: ‘If you kill us, you’re going to look dumb come next game’

    Wesley Matthews wasn’t at all ready to admit that the Blazers’ 30-point loss in Charlotte was a sign of the team having deeper issues.

    Houston a real contender in the West? Sure looks like it.

  8. Blazers rookie C.J. McCollum will play his first professional game in the D-League

    Jan 1, 2014, 8:30 PM EDT

    CJ McCollum

    The Blazers selected C.J. McCollum with the 10th overall pick in this summer’s draft, not necessarily knowing just how good the team’s guard play would be to this point in the season. Portland, of course, has been one of the year’s biggest surprises, and has a won-loss record that places them among the league’s elite…

  9. Wesley Mathews thinks LaMarcus Aldridge is too unselfish, but is a big fan

    Dec 21, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Portland Trail Blazers

    Wesley Matthews is having a career year — he is scoring a career high 16.2 points a game, he is shooting 44.2 percent from three (39.8 percent last season had been a career high) and he is shooting a lot better inside the arc as well, with a true shooting percentage of 64.5 percent (career…

  10. Marvin Williams nicknamed Alec Burks ‘Easy 20,’ which makes no sense

    Dec 17, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Alec Burks, Andre Miller

    Alec Burks scored a career-high 31 points against the Heat on Monday night, so let’s all overreact. That should be easy for Marvin Williams, who’s been overreacting to his Jazz teammate’s good play for a while. Via Aaron Falk of The Salt Lake Tribune: “He had a hell of a game,” Utah forward Marvin Williams…

  11. Monta Ellis hits the game-winner to beat Blazers (VIDEO)

    Dec 8, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Coming into Saturday night’s game against Dallas, the Blazers had used the top-ranked offense in the league to get out to a 17-3 start to the season, best in the Western Conference. Portland’s defense is ranked just 20th, however, and playing against a Mavericks team whose offense is ranked fourth and can score almost as…

  12. Blazers set NBA record for three-point percentage in rout of Jazz (VIDEO)

    If you’ve only been paying cursory attention to the NBA in its early stages this season, you may not have noticed the rise of the Portland Trail Blazers. But following Friday night’s 130-98 pasting of the Utah Jazz, Portland now has a record of 17-3 — the best in a very deep Western Conference. Guys…

  13. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

  14. Warriors’ Andrew Bogut, Blazers Mo Williams suspended for altercation, others fined

    Nov 25, 2013, 3:18 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    It was an odd “fight” (all NBA fights have to have that word in parenthesis as a “West Side Story” dance fight generally is more intimidating). Andrew Bogot and Joel Freeland got tangled up under the basket, then in his effort to get away Bogut throws a forearm at Freeland’s head. Mo Williams jumped in…

  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. Blazers’ Wesley Matthews experiences irregular heartbeat, listed as day-to-day

    Oct 24, 2013, 12:03 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Three

    If the Blazers are to have any chance at a long shot playoff berth this season, they’ll need a healthy Wesley Matthews starting at the two for as much of the campaign as possible. Matthews experienced an irregular heartbeat during practice on Wednesday, however, and at the moment is listed as being day-to-day. The team’s official…

  17. LaMarcus Aldridge plans to shoot more 3-pointers

    Oct 1, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    The following chart shows the 60 players who took the most shots from at least 15 feet last season, sorted from left to right by most to least qualifying shots. The bars’ heights represent how many of those shots were 3-pointers. As you’d expect, most players who take a lot of jump shots also take…

  18. Report: Blazers considering trading up for Victor Oladipo

    May 20, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT

    Temple v Indiana

    Fans of every lottery team have a simple solution for how to operate in a historically weak draft: Trade down. Of course, if you think this is a weak draft, other teams probably do too, and they’re not going to be so keen on trading up. But there might be one team interested in trading…

  19. Raymond Felton hears boos in Portland, then plays like he was still a Blazer

    Mar 15, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Felton shoots during NBA basketball game in Portland, Oregon

    It was bound to be a rough night for Raymond Felton on his return to Portland — and not because Trail Blazers fans were going to boo him. Carmelo Anthony, the focus on the Knicks offense, was out getting his knee drained. Tyson Chandler, Felton’s quality pick-and-roll partner, was out with his own sore knee…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while pointing out to friends the historical inaccuracies of “Argo”… Lakers 103, Mavericks 99: The Lakers are starting to find their identity as a team… of course, some night’s that identity is Kobe Bryant. He dropped 38 points, 14 in the fourth quarter,…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what made Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia think that hat was a good choice at the inauguration…. Bulls 95, Lakers 83: Chicago is what Los Angeles is not — passionate, committed to the system, hustlers on every play and defenders. So,…
