"Still no state of panic, no state of emergency," said Matthews, who finished with 19 points against the Bucks. "This was a (crap) road trip. It was. We're better than this and we've got to be better." It was a forgettable January. But the Blazers refuse to be hypnotized by the moment. "It's been a tough month," Lillard said. "I'd rather it'd be this month rather than March or next month. It's good that it happened to us. I think we learned something from it by seeing that if we don't stick to what makes us who we are, these are the types of things that can happen. The positive thing is that this has happened to us and we're 32-16. We've just got to get back to doing those little things. We've got to commit ourselves to doing the things that make us an elite team." Oregonian

If things weren't already bad enough for the Trail Blazers - they have lost seven of the past nine - the team arrived in Milwaukee early Saturday morning to a hotel that point guard Damian Lillard and center Robin Lopez swear is spooked. "Pfister hotel in Milwaukee is haunted ... idc (I don't care) what nobody say,'' Lillard tweeted Saturday morning. "It's true tho!!'' Lopez retorted. "Good thing I'm in tuned with the spirit world.'' Oregonian

"You know, it wasn't easy for him," Nicolas Batum said. "I can understand how frustrated he (was) because he deserved to be on the All-Star team. I think he played great anyway tonight. He played his game. He didn't make a lot of shots, but he played hard for 48 minutes and he was out there trying to win this game. So it was the same Dame that he always is." Oregonian

"I didn't want to come out and try to go out of my way to prove a point," Lillard said of his performance. "I just wanted to do what I always do for the team. And that's do everything I can to give us a chance to win. I came out and did that. It's just unfortunate I didn't make a few more shots." Oregonian

Damian Lillard: I just want to thank the coaches who feel I wasn't good enough, the fans that didn't think I was good enough , and Adam Silver also for not thinking I was good enough. This isn't unfamiliar territory for me , it's actually what my life has been inspired by. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed or that I don't feel disrespected but it's not too much to handle. Not the first or last guy to be snubbed. "You should have been there" isn't good enough for me. But anyway, The reason I'm in these shoes is because I've always use the hand I was dealt to my advantage... A wise man once told me... " it ain't always gone be peaches and cream but somebody has to pay for the reason it's not ... One way or another " ... #ImThankful #Real #NonAllStar #RipCity #YellowTape http://instagram.com/p/yfT7CcP4rE/ Instagram

But that wasn’t enough to get Lillard to New York for the Feb. 15 All-Star Game as he was one of the most notable snubs after the All-Star reserves were announced Thursday. When contacted via text about not making the All-Star team, Lillard told Yahoo Sports: “No comment.” Yahoo! Sports
