Notes, quotes & observations from the @Portland Trail Blazers' 106-89 season-opening win over OKC Wednesday at the Moda Center portlandtribune.com/pt/12-sports/2…

Kerry Eggers

The #Blazers' 106-89 win over OKC was their 14th straight victory in a home opener -- matching the NBA record set by Boston from 1979-92.

Claver no cuenta en unos Blazers de récord a los que no frenaron 4 tapones de Ibaka marca.com/2014/10/30/bal… @marca http://t.co/Kg3Ofcov7Z

Blazers outlast Thunder, Westbrook on opening night columbian.com/news/2014/oct/…

Erik Gundersen

Blazers said the Thunder just simply outworked them in the first half.

Joe Freeman

#Blazers LaMarcus Aldridge, on his highlight-reel fast-break alley-oop dunk off of pass from Batum: "I felt like I was 18 again."

John Canzano

Bumped into @Chris Kaman’s “Uncle Dave” at Blazers season opener. You should, too. Read: oregonlive.com/sports/oregoni…

Royce Young

Blazers beat OKC 106-89. Westbrook with 38 on 25 shots, Lance Thomas with 14, Ibaka 10. Blazers outscored the Thunder 31-12 in the fourth.

Anthony Slater

Blazers drop the Thunder 106-89. Russell Westbrook was great -- 38 points, 6 assists -- but didn't get much help.

Erik Gundersen

FINAL: Blazers 106, OKC 89. Aldridge: 27 points, 3 boards. Matthews: 22, 4 rebs. Batum: 16-5-6. Russ finishes with 38 and 6.

Joe Freeman

It's a wrap: #Blazers beat Thunder 106-89. LA has 27 pts, Matthews adds 22. Westbrook has 38 pts for OKC, which scored just 12 pts in 4th Q.

Sean Meagher

Trail Blazers 106, Thunder 89 – FINAL. Blazers undefeated on the season.

Joe Freeman

And with 2:20 left, Stotts will empty bench. #Blazers will open season with solid victory over the shorthanded Thunder. Next up: Sac on Fri.

Joe Freeman

Brooks pulls Westbrook, essentially waving white flag with 2:45 left. #Blazers lead by 16 pts after delivering 4th-Q knockout.

Mike Tokito

#Blazers have assists on 7 of their 10 field goals in fourth quarter. Playing Stotts ball, in other words.

Anthony Slater

Blazers outscoring the Thunder 26-8 in the fourth quarter, lead up to 16. It's ovaaaaaah.

Alex Kennedy

So, Blazers just turned the sliders all the way up. They've hit five of six three-point attempts to pull away from OKC.

Paul Garcia

And just like that, Blazers went from up 8 to up 16. 26-8 scoring edge in the 4th for Portland.

Royce Young

Fourth quarter thus far: Blazers 26, Thunder 8. Done ran out of gas.

Joe Freeman

btw ... at 93-83, the #Blazers have their largest lead of the game. 5 mins left.

Joe Freeman

Incredible play by Batum, who fights for steal at midcourt, chases ball down and tosses a fast-break alley-oop to LA. #Blazers lead 93-83.

Sean Meagher

Batum steals from Westbrook, keeps it in bounds, lobs to the trailing LA. That'll work. 93-83 Blazers, 5:17 Q4.

Ben Golliver

Blazers were +8 during Russell Westbrook's first-half rest and +5 during his second-half rest.

Kevin Pelton

Westbrook with just 3 FTAs in the second half after 13 in the first. Blazers making him a jump shooter in the half-court offense.

Joe Freeman

For those who've been waiting for Dame to erupt ... he just hit his 2nd 3 from top of key with 7:02 left to give #Blazers an 89-81 lead.

John Canzano

From ‘Miami Murder’ to a Trail Blazers opener… Uncle Dave’s maiden voyage oregonlive.com/sports/oregoni…

Joe Freeman

The #Blazers' bench has scored just 13 points through three quarters.

Kerry Eggers

OKC leads 77-75 heading into 4Q. Fast break points: Thunder 14, #blazers 2

Mike Tokito

Hate to say this, but OKC bench is outscoring #Blazers' bench 18-13, which is notable as a lot of usual bench started for Thunder.

Erik Gundersen

End of 3: OKC 77, Blazers 75. OKC actually extended the lead with Westbrook sitting. 36, 6 ast for him. Aldridge with 23, 2 reb, 2 ast.

Joe Freeman

End of 3rd: Thunder lead the #Blazers 77-75. LA has 23 pts, Batum has 14 pts and Westbrook has 36 pts, 6 asts for OKC.

Kevin Pelton

Blazers conducting an experiment on how much size advantage over his defender Perry Jones needs to score regularly.

Kerry Eggers

Key part of game, and with Thunder so thin because of injuries, #Blazers need to build a lead

Darnell Mayberry

The Blazers are really good at beating up on the Thunder's third string.

Kerry Eggers

That's 10 points for @Chris Kaman off bench as #Blazers make another run at Thunder

Paul Garcia

Russell Westbrook has 33 points right now. That's more than all Blazers players not named LaMarcus Aldridge and Wesley Matthews.

Kerry Eggers

Russell Westbrook has 33 points with 5:44 left in 3Q. Career high is 45. Thunder lead #Blazers 68-65

Erik Gundersen

It's going down, I'm yelling RUSSELLLLL RT @JabariJYoung: BTW... Westbrook's career-high is 45...he has 33 so far #Thunder #Blazers

Joe Freeman

Russell Westbrook continues to torch the #Blazers. Midway through 3rd Q he has 33 pts, 6 asts, is 9-18 from field (14-15 from FT line).

Kerry Eggers

Big stat at halftime: #Blazers 2 for 15 from 3-point range

Erik Gundersen

So I guess the last play was a good example as to why LaMarcus Aldridge is still skeptical about that Blazers transition D.

Darnell Mayberry

Blazers coach Terry Stotts before the game: "There’s not a better competitor in the league than Russell Westbrook."

Darnell Mayberry

Thunder 54, Blazers 49 at halftime. Westbrook's got 26 points on 7-for-13 shooting and five assists. He's 12-for-13 at the line.

Joe Freeman

End of 1st half: Thunder lead the #Blazers 54-49. Westbrook has 26 pts, 5 asts. LA has 18 pts.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers with a lot of funky looking passes tonight.

Mike Tokito

#Blazers, who averaged 22.5 assists last season, have seven. A little too much one-on-one going on.

Lang Whitaker

At halftime, Blazers should turn off lights and have Kaman sing "He's got the whole world in his hands"

Darnell Mayberry

Westbrook is 12-for-13 from the foul line. The Blazers are 11-for-14 from the foul line.

Sean Highkin

I actually like the Blazers' new court. Not sure what the consensus opinion is but I think it's nice.
