Nothing can stop us!!!

There are few things better than returning home after an extended road trip, but one of them has to be returning home with a 3 game winning streak. It wasn't always pretty; Portland squandered a 21 point lead to the Grizzlies and a 16 point lead to the 76ers, but the Trail Blazers found a way to win in both games.

The Portland Trail Blazers are already as good a road team this season as they were in all of 2005-06.

Zach Randolph scored 21 points to lead the Trail Blazers to an 85-79 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night, their sixth road win of the season, matching their total away from the Rose Garden last season.

Randolph grabbed 11 rebounds for Portland, which ended a six-game road trip - its longest of the season - with three straight wins.

Our next game is today against the Clippers... with the Clippers having Sam Cassell and Corey Maggette possibly out of commission this game, this should be a breeze for Portland

Lost in the 4th

Michael Redd scored 33 points on 11-of-20 shooting and also pulled down seven rebounds to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 102-94 overtime win over the Portland Trail Blazers.
After resting during the 2nd quarter of the game, Redd came back to score 19 points in the 4th quarter. The Trail Blazers apparently felt that they had the win in the bag and eased up on the Bucks during the 4th quarter.
Aren’t these guys supposed to be pros? Don’t they know that you haven’t won until the last buzzer sounds?

Blazers Trying to Find a Way

The Portland Trail Blazers try to get things back on track last night while they host the Atlanta Hawks at the Rose Garden. This will be a battle of two teams trying to get something going. Portland has lost 9 of their last 11 games while the Hawks have lost 7 of their last 9. The Trail Blazers are going to need this win because they are having to go to Detroit on Tuesday to play the Pistons.
