Third Straight Blowout. Blazers Waltz Jazz. 125-104

We called for a playoff performance from "your" Portland Trail Blazers and I would say that you could consider their delivery right on time.  A third straight win by 20+ points?  When was the last time that happened? (This is me summoning stat geeks.)  At one point in the game, I murmured to myself, "The Blazers are getting every call," but now that I see the box score, that wasn't necessarily the case.  Shooting 61% from the field was actually the culprit in this "blazing."

Game thoughts in fantastical bulleted format:
  • The Roy/Aldridge tandem is now what we expected it to be.
  • Someone argue that Deron Williams is a better play than Roy.  Please do.
  • Holding Boozer to just 3 boards should be noted.
  • +35 for Blake?  Sad to say, but he almost needs to play 48 minutes per.
  • If Batum isn't in the "untouchable" trade-talk category, then fire Pritchard.
  • What's with opponents needing to throw balls at Joel?
  • Glad to see him continue to stand up for himself though.  Ghostface!
  • Any word on Rudy's return?
  • I'm feeling giddy just writing this post as my mind wanders into the near future.
Plus/Minus Sheet:  (Oden the factor.)

Box Score.

The last time the Blazers won 3-straight by 20+ points was in 1992.

I just read that somewhere too, thanks for looking it up for me though.

Hah such a foo. Damn right it is.

Blazers did get every call in the first 3 quarters. Boxscore is the result of a ton of 4th quarter makeups. Hard to argue Deron over Brandon after this game, but didn't he score 34 in Portland last year?

Talking this year Welk. There was a lot of bitching over the All-Star break about Williams over Roy and I think Roy proved again tonight why he's deserving of all of the awards he keeps getting.

I absolutely love Roy as a player. Don't get me wrong. You didn't hear me bitching about him over Williams as an all-star. All I'm saying is Deron had a bad night.

Deron did have a bad night; we all know what he is capable of.

Just glad on my end, to finally see Roy getting plenty of talk nationally.

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.
