Tic-tac-toe, the Portland Trail Blazers won their third game in a row for the first time since January by defeating the Sacramento Kings. Although the Trail Blazers led almost the whole way, the Kings brought it all the way back to a one-point game in the fourth quarter, before Damian Lillard took control. Portland’s lead […]

Nicolas Batum has been a different player since the 2015 NBA All-Star break. Or, should I say, he has been closer to his old self than the “different player” we have seen for the majority of the season. The extended rest appears to be working wonders for him. Perhaps that nagging wrist injury is a […]

Thomas Robinson has agreed sign a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets upon clearing waivers on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. PST.  Since losing Mirza Teletovic for the season (blood clots) and dealing Kevin Garnett to the Minnesota Timberwolves at the trade deadline, they are in need of a power forward to backup the newly acquired […]

Thomas Robinson, Will Barton, and Victor Claver were traded to the Denver Nuggets on Thursday in exchange for Arron Afflalo and Alonzo Gee. The three former Portland Trail Blazers now begin the next step of their career journey—but not all of them will start it in Denver. Player transactions did not stop at the deadline. […]

According to The Oregonian’s Jason Quick, Steve Blake has received permission from the league to change his jersey number from 25 to 5 in honor of the late Jerome Kersey, who passed away on Wednesday. Kersey wore the number 25 for the entire decade that he played for the Portland Trail Blazers (1984-1995). Blake wasted […]

With one second remaining in Friday night’s game between the Portland Trail Blazers and Oklahoma City Thunder, Russell Westbrook took a knee to the head from teammate Andre Roberson. The injury occurred on this play, in which Westbrook was knocked to the floor after missing a free throw and was accidentally struck as he attempted […]

The Portland Trail Blazers traded Thomas Robinson to the Denver Nuggets last week in order to acquire Arron Afflalo. After the trade went through, Robinson’s camp requested a buyout from the Nuggets and both parties agreed to terms. Shortly thereafter, Robinson agreed to sign a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets upon clearing waivers—except the […]

When you consider that the Portland Trail Blazers flipped three players that they were not using to the fullest (Thomas Robinson, Will Barton, Victor Claver) and a mid-late future first rounder for Arron Afflalo and Alonzo Gee at the 2015 NBA trade deadline, it is reasonable to conclude that President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey is steering this […]

This is easily an A for the Portland Trail Blazers. Arron Afflalo is about the best they could have hoped for in terms of scoring off the bench. On top of that, he moves the ball well, is a capable defender, and plays both the shooting guard and small forward position. He is a starting […]

Portland Trail Blazers legend Jerome Kersey passed away today at the age of 52 years-old. Cause of death has not yet been released. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports was the first to break the news after being informed of Kersey’s death by people close to the situation. It’s with sadness that I have learned […]
