Blazers Battle Refs, Drop the Magic. 106-99

Hell of a damn job tonight by the Portland Trail Blazers!  Most people had them losing the opening game of a 5 game road trip, but the team itself, had some other plans. 

It felt like the refs were out to get them tonight, Tyrone Biggums was in the building, and a nasty losing streak against the Magic was also hovering.  So what did they do?  Gave the ball to Brandon Roy who dominated.

Game thoughts in exciting bullet format:
  • Roy forcefully took over the game.
  • LaMarcus looked intimidated by Dwight Howard.
  • Howard was an absolute beast in the first half.
  • How on Earth does Turkoglu go off for 35?
  • Blake easily won the battle of the bad point guards.
  • Although he was horrific again defensively.
  • Who is Rashard Lewis again?  Still haven't seen him this year.
  • Big thanks to Outlaw for some game ending pass deflections again.
  • Rudy, you are just smooth.
  • Joel, 10 minutes is probably good.  Any more and you would have surely been ejected.
We'll hopefully have some video footage soon!

Any thoughts of your own?  How will the rest of the road trip shake out?

Box score.

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.
