GIFs: Thomas Robinson Gets Chase-Down Block, And-1 Alley-Oop In One Minute

Thomas Robinson

Thomas Robinson got the first start of his career tonight in place of the injured Robin Lopez. If the third-year big man keeps making plays like these, he might find himself a staple of Terry Stotts’ rotation even once Lopez returns. Watch the hyper-athletic Portland Trail Blazers reserve get a big chase-down block and impressive and-1 alley-oop in a minute of play versus the Milwaukee Bucks. Read More »

Damian Lillard Left Off Top Point Guard Lists; Tweets “It’s Always Been This Way”

Damian Lillard, Isiah Thomas, Greg Anthony

Damian Lillard received only one collegiate scholarship offer. He played four years at Weber State. And he was cut from USA Basketball’s FIBA World Cup squad in August. The Portland Trail Blazers point guard knows what it’s like to be underappreciated, and has used that feeling as fuel for a still burgeoning All-Star career. And he was just afforded even more of it.

Portland Trail Blazers’ Robin Lopez Fractures Hand; Out “A While”

LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard, Robin Lopez

An improved bench ensures that the Portland Trail Blazers aren’t doomed as a result of Robin Lopez’s impending absence. Not that their reaction to his injury would have you know it. After Lopez suffered a fractured right hand in the team’s win over the San Antonio Spurs, his teammates stressed how difficult it would be to move forward without him. Read More »

Tough Wednesday night for Damian Lillard, who shot an uncharacteristic 2-for-12 from deep against the lowly Timberwolves, and Portland was upset in Minnesota, 90-82. However, Dame showed off the hops when he threw down a two-handed jam after a pretty little curl play off the inbounds. Read More »

Kyle Lowry, LaMarcus Aldridge

So much for the Portland Trail Blazers and Toronto Raptors being “sub-contenders” in their respective conferences.

Video: Simple Terry Stotts Play Gives Blazers Last-Second Win Over Nuggets

J.J. Hickson, Robin Lopez

The headline probably should have included Robin Lopez, the Blazers center who put in a layup to give Portland a 105-103 advantage with 1.3 seconds remaining last night. The Blazers held on to win, but all anyone wanted to talk about was the brilliance of Portland coach Terry Stotts and his ATO (after timeout) play-calling. Read More »

GIF: Rajon Rondo Again Shows Off “The Rondo” Fake Behind-The-Back Pass

Rajon Rondo

It’s easy to turn Rajon Rondo‘s game into a senior year thesis. He “contains multitudes,” but at only 6-1, 170, he’s not “large,” though his game does contain “contradictions.” Walt Whitman parallels aside, two plays in last night’s 94-88 Celtics loss to the Blazers show why we feel “so proud to get” near “the meaning of” Rondo.
