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

Blazers’ Wes Matthews warns reporter after 30-point loss: ‘If you kill us, you’re going to look dumb come next game’
Mar 23, 2014, 2:00 PM EST
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.

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
