Williams Attempts to Outplay Roy. Blazers still Pummel Jazz. 122-108


The effort was great tonight Deron, but your attempt to prove that you are a better player than Brandon Roy fell short my friend.  Many are calling this your second straight year of All-Star snubbing, but after watching tonight, I'll obviously have to disagree.  Brandon Roy, at this stage in his NBA career, is better than you.

Unbelievable effort tonight from the boys in black and red (and white)!  From the opening minutes all the way through to the final buzzer, Portland brought their best.

Game thoughts in fantastical bulleted format:
  • Welcome back Joel Przybilla.  17 boards big guy, nice.
  • Oden displayed his achilles heel again.  Fouls.
  • And Sergio was about to have a career night.  Then started hacking.
  • While Brandon was unstoppable and seems to be finding form.
  • Milsap's foul issues were a gift to Portland.
  • And Okur finally did not catch fire vs. the Blazers.
  • And I guess I should say it...nice game Deron.
  • Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!

(And I apologize for the quality this person actually put out. NBA.com has the legit version.)

A healthy Deron Williams is an allstar level player, but he would have made it at the expense of Parker or West, not Roy.

I think he probably should have made it in place of Parker, but for many, they feel like Roy was the reason he didn't make it and I completely disagree with that. Roy has been unbelievable this year and has been probably just as good as Chris Paul to his team.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
