A #Mavs win over the #Hawks on Monday, coupled with a #Rockets loss to the #Blazers, will put Dallas in the No. 4 seed out West.

John Reid

After last night's loss to Trail Blazers might not been a good idea to wear all-red uniforms vs. Thunder again

Dwight Jaynes

Surprise -- the Trail Blazers are beginning to look like a title threat csnnw.com/blazers/surpri…

Jenny Dial Creech

Pat Beverley said the Rockets still have a sour taste in their mouth from last year's playoff loss to the Trail Blazers.

#Nba My conference final four so far? West: Warriors-Blazers, Grizzlies-Spurs. East: Raptors-Wizards, Cavs-Bulls

Joe Freeman

8 seasons covering #Blazers and I just had my 1st "oversleep" moment. But thanks to Kevin Murphy's fast driving/TSA pre - I made my flight.

The Blazers look amazing right now. They just won a 3OT game against the Spurs last night and then beat up the Pelicans, 114-88, tonight.

Alex Kennedy

Nic Batum talked to @Joel Brigham about nearly joining the Wolves, being grateful to stay with the Blazers and more: basketballinsiders.com/nba-pm-batum-t…

Column: @Anthony Davis and @Damian Lillard could have been #Pelicans' dream pairing. Fate, and #Blazers, intervened. bit.ly/1wQeML1

Mike Richman

Stotts is going to be mad the Blazers lost the fourth quarter. Old CBA guy loves getting that "7-0" win.

Zach Lowe

Clinical, vicious performance from the Blazers tonight in New Orleans. Super-impressive coming off triple OT. That team is goooood

Erik Gundersen

Blazers 114, Pelicans 88. Very impressive after 3OT win. Aldridge 27 and 12. Lillard 17 and 7. Kaman 16 and 6.

John Reid

Pelicans suffer 114-88 loss to Trail Blazers.

Nakia Hogan

Blazers embarrass Pelicans 114-88.

Joe Freeman

It's a wrap: #Blazers beat Pelicans 114-88. LA had 27pts, 12rbs, Dame 17pts, 7asts, Kaman 16 pts, 6 rbs. Port improves 22-6, 2-0 on trip.

Jimmy Smith

Mercifully, it's over: #Blazers 114, #Pelicans 88.

Jonathan Feigen

Weird stuff a night after the triple OT in San Antonio. Blazers up 29 in New Orleans and a handful of Spurs up 10 in Dallas.

Joe Freeman

The #Blazers' defense has held Anthony Davis to his fewest points (7), fewest FGs (3) and worst shooting % (21.4%, 3-14) of the season.

Joe Freeman

A Thomas Robinson rebound dunk with 6:10 left in the 4th gave the #Blazers their first points of the quarter. They still lead NO by 28.

Jimmy Smith

#Blazers still haven't scored in the 4Q; #Pelicans have put up 8, still trail by 24 with 6:50 to go.

Erik Gundersen

Pels take out Anderson. Blazers bench against Pels bench for the last 8 minutes.

John Ireland

Blazers are for real. Night after a 3 OT win at SA, they are killing the Pelicans in NO. About to go to 22-6. Who gets top 4 in West?

Joe Freeman

#Blazers will start the 4th Q with Blake, CJ, Barton, Freeland and T. Rob.

Erik Gundersen

End of 3: Blazers 94, Pelicans 62. Aldridge with 27 points, 12 rebounds, 3 steals, 2 blocks. Dame 17 points, 7 assists.

Joe Freeman

And best part of the big lead for #Blazers, obviously, is that Stotts can rest his key players for most (if not all) of the 4th.

John Reid

Wow - Trail Blazers leading by 32 at the end of the third quarter against Pelicans.

Joe Freeman

End of 3rd: #Blazers lead the Pelicans 94-62. LA has 27 pts, 12 rbs, Dame has 17 pts, 7 asts, Kaman has 16 pts, 6 rbs. Port shooting 57%.

Jimmy Smith

#Blazers' lead up to 33, 92-59 1 min 3Q.

John Reid

Watched this team hold Houston to 90 points on Thursday, Trail Blazers already with 90 and there's still 2:05 remaining in third quarter.

Mike Richman

That was brilliant RT @CHold: Another triumph of ATO plays for the Blazers.

John Reid

Pelicans - no traps, no interior help defense and no chance right now of cutting the Trail Blazers' deficit. Pelicans trailing 88-57.

Joe Freeman

Just checked out the #Blazers' plus-minuses. Lol. LA is a +31. Batum, Dame are +27s.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers are on a roll ... push lead to 80-51 with 5:55 left in 3rd. Dominant on both ends. Really impressive performance so far.

Jason Calmes

Timeout with 5:56 left in the 3rd. Blazers are up 80 to 51.

Jimmy Smith

Wondering if #Pelicans will contest a 3-PT shot tonight? #Blazers are 8/17 from beyond arc and most of those are wide-open looks.

Erik Gundersen

LA and Dame are out here Shaq and Kobe-ing these guys the last two games. Blazers up 29.

Erik Gundersen

Freeland picks up 5th with 7:22 left. Kaman comes in with 3 fouls. Blazers up 24.

Jason Calmes

Not sure what you're supposed to do when the Blazers are shooting like this.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers clicking on both ends to start the second half. Freeland, aside from the fouls, playing fantastic defense.
