The Afterparty: Blazers/Clippers Preseason Game 3

A party full of post-game links and coverage to give you every over-analyzed angle in hopes of making your Blazers IQ that much greater.

Not a lot of positive things to say after listening (yes listening) to game 3 of the Trail Blazers preseason.  You know it's going to be a rough night when Brian Wheeler starts questioning calls, circus shots, and Eric Gordon before the 5 minute mark in the first quarter.  We heard positive notes on Oden and Aldridge again, but the rest of the crew received pretty mixed reviews.  Apparently the R-A-M-B-O starting lineup wasn't quite in sync, but Nate has assured us all that we'll be seeing it again.  The only question I really have at this point, is where has Brandon Roy been?  We're 3 games deep and he has yet to be any kind of factor.  Granted, this is the preseason, but I'm still wanting him to take over, even for 5 minutes.

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.
