These pesky Suns won't go away. Or the Blazers are letting them hang. 55-49 Portland at the half.
Suns in the process of an NBA rope-a-dope
Robin Lopez missed a dunk that would've put Portland up 18. Now it's a 12 point game.
BREAKING: The Suns.
How can we get Gerald Green and Lance on the same team?
Gerald Green 5 touches, 5 shots, 7 points.
Can we just start the playoffs already?
Batum-Kaman mixtape NOW
Suns get a point during the break. Gerald Green's 2 was changed to a 3.
Gerald Green scores on his first touch. If he gets it again he's shooting... and he did. An airball!
Never change, Gerald Green.
Hey -- a free throw!
Afflalo beat Goodwin in the post, but then re-posted and beat him again.
A couple of suboptimal transition possession for CJ

You just can't get enough mascot hi jinx, right?
Blazers 31, Suns 22 - End 1st: Batum 8pts, 3rebs, Aldridge 6pts, 4rebs, 2ast.
Blazers play much better D to close the quarter. Lead 31-22 Blazers after 1. 8 points for Batum. 6 for Aldridge. 9 for Markieff Morris.
Blake skirts the carrying concerns by hitting a 3.
Steve Blake gets called for carrying. If they call that Steve might not be able to dribble all that much.
Batum and Kaman two-man game not the best example of team chemistry
That was the stupidest sequence that leading up to a Nic Batum 3. Shaqtin everywhere.
Three Suns converge on Aldridge. He kicks out to a wiiiide open Damian Lillard, but the corner 3 is off the mark.
Blazers up 18-17 after a Nic Batum midrange J.
So about that Blazers defense…17-16 Suns with 5:17 left in the first quarter.
Da gawd Scott Foster in the house tonight.

Jeff Hornacek on Brandon Knight: "It's not for sure but I think he's out."
Jeff Hornacek says it's "not for sure" but he thinks Brandon Knight is out tonight.
The 76ers released Tim Frazier 4 days into his 2nd 10-day contract. The reason: To clear roster spot to claim Thomas Robinson off waivers.
Looks like Steve Blake got a haircut and a new pair of kobe's for tonight's game.
Tim Frazier played 6 games for Philly earlier this season and was just named D-League Player of The Week.
Tim Frazier, BTW, spent 5 years at Penn State. Missed most of '12-13 after rupturing Achilles' tendon -- same injury as Wesley Matthews.
In 41 D-League games, Tim Frazier avg 16.7pts, 9.5asts and 7.1rebs with the Maine Red Claws. He leads the D-League with 4 triple doubles
The March 23 date from previous tweet was for lockout season.
Clarification:player whose last 10-day deal expired before March 1, then signs a rest-of-season deal, is playoff eligible.
A player whose last 10-day deal expired before March 23, then signs a rest-of-season deal, is playoff eligible.
Fraziers is an undrafted rookie who played four seasons at Penn State. Spent most of season in D-League, had two 10-days with 76ers.
If POTW was a "got buckets when you need them" award, Aldridge would've won it. But Curry's numbers were out of this world and GSW went 4-0
But Steph shot 57.7% from the floor and made 24 of 38 (63.2%!) of his threes. That's a good week.
LaMarcus Aldridge had a darn good case for POTW: 26pts, 9.7rebs on 51.6 FG%. Blazers went 3-1 overall and 3-0 with Aldridge.
Steph Curry wins Western Conference Player of the Week. He averaged 30pts, 8ast, 3.5rebs, 1.8stls and GSW went 4-0.
Game day at home against Phoenix ! See you tonight Rip City !
The more they try to break you, the easier it all becomes.
Post-ASW, SAS starters have +32.7 net rating, LAC starters +31.8, CLE starters +17.6, GSW starters +17.3. Playoffs are going to be sick
That'll do it.
Winslow is balling but that looked like it hit his leg last.
That might be the dagger
Sabonis out there defending like Joel Freeland
Yung Sabonis with great verticality
Zags need to give the ball to Wiltjer every possession until Duke changes something.
