Erik Gundersen

End of 3: Bucks 70, Blazers 68. Lillard has 24 points. Aldridge with 17 and 13. Brandon Knight with 18 points to lead MIL.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers haven't done a very good job of rotating to Khris Middleton, 39 percent 3-point shooter. He's 4/4 from deep tonight.

Ted Davis

#Bucks Giannis is out with a left ankle sprain. But Plucky Bucks tied with Blazers at 64 in Portland @620wtmj .

Kerry Eggers

Aldridge is just overpowering the Bucks, and so are the #Blazers, with a 35-22 rebounding edge. Yet they trail 64-62

Frank Madden

Prediction: Now that they've lost Giannis, Bucks will beat Blazers on Dudley turnaround granny shot.

Mike Richman

Damian Lillard commits the Blazers' 13th turnover of the night.

Kerry Eggers

That's 13 turnovers for #Blazers, who trail 61-60 with 4:06 left in 3Q

Jason Quick

In his first career start, Thomas Robinson has done everything Blazers could have wanted: 9 pts, 9 rebs, hustle, few if any poor decisions

Steve Aschburner

Ayres and Baynes are so going to get minutes Fri & Sat vs. Blazers and Mavs.

Blazers Dancers

Blazers up 43-41 at the half.

Jason Quick

Just when you think the Blazers can't throw a more hideous pass ... somebody one-ups his teammate

Kerry Eggers

Make that nine team turnovers now for #Blazers -- too many

Mike Richman

Blazers are a mess right now.

Kerry Eggers

With @Nicolas Batum and @Chris Kaman combining for 0-for-11 shooting along with 8 turnovers, #Blazers fortunate to trail only 39-34

Charles F. Gardner

A deep 3 by Lillard brings Blazers within 39-34. Bucks had lead up to 10 but quick 5-0 spurt by Portland.

Erik Gundersen

Damian Lillard working hard to keep the Blazers close. 15 points now for him. 39-34 Bucks with 4:23 left in the first half.

Kerry Eggers

That 3 by @Damian Lillard was from a different area code. He has 15 as #Blazers close to within 39-34 of Bucks with 4:23 left in 2Q

Jason Quick

So far, this is easily one of -- of not the -- worst Blazers performances this season. Sloppy passes, bad decisions. Bucks lead 39-29.

Erik Gundersen

Bucks are athletic, they work hard on D and they are well-coached. Blazers struggling to find footing in this game. 35-26 Bucks 6:54 Q2.

Kerry Eggers

Ex-Blazers Jerryd Bayless scores for Bucks. Bayless leads NBA with almost unbelievable .980 FT pct. -- 48 for 49

Mike Richman

Erik Gundersen

If only we had a Bucks-Blazers finals that went to 7 games youtube.com/watch?v=7os3H4…

Kerry Eggers

#Blazers wearing their white short-sleeves, but @Wesley Matthews does them one better -- long sleeves #playinginthepark

Charles F. Gardner

Thomas Robinson is starting at center for Blazers. Stotts likes Kaman-Blake combo coming off the bench.

Mike Richman

Thomas Robinson, who didn't want to get excited about more playing time on Tuesday, will start at "center" tonight for the #Blazers

Ted Davis

30mins to air #MILvPOR. Blazers 11-2 at home. Alphabet-Aldridge matchup worth watching. @620wtmj. http://t.co/60qrAiFlgB

Mike Richman

Sort of news: #Blazers place CJ McCollum on the Active List and C Robin Lopez on the Inactive List for tonight's game vs. Milwaukee

Charles F. Gardner

Blazers coach Terry Stotts would not reveal if Chris Kaman or Joel Freeland would start in place of injured Robin Lopez. Stay tuned.

Mike Richman

Look who's on the #Blazers game program tonight http://t.co/kkGrtRxGzJ

Nathan Begley

I wish the Blazers had a 3/4 off the bench who could d a bit/ score like D Carroll or W Chandler. Wish Claver could shoot.

Erik Gundersen

From yesterday: Blazers confronting being without Robin Lopez for a while columbian.com/news/2014/dec/…

Blazers are going to wear sleeved jerseys tonight. Currently 1-0 in the pajama tops twitter.com/ripcityeq/stat…

Jorge Castillo

ESPN just showed video of Andre Miller dunking with the Cavs in 2001 and with the Blazers in 2010. So it has been done.
