Marcus Mariota making mincemeat of hapless Huskies right now
Break The Rules
Royce Freeman with the hat trick.
Chris Petersen is a witch. Punt by his QB pins Ducks on the 1.
Incredible break for Huskies, as quick-kick punt rolls from just inside the 20 to inside the 1
Not a good start for Ducks' Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, called for PI on that play
On the 17th play of Oregon’s drive… Royce Freeman scores on a Marcus Mariota pitch (speed option left) on 4th and goal.
Pretty sure the Ducks go for it on fourth-and-goal from the 3. They lead 7-6 after 1Q
What's with all the snark about Joey Harrington? He's a very good color commentator, well prepared every week.
Duck defense can live with giving up 3 points after Huskies took the ball with such great field position. UW 3-0 with 10:20 left in 1Q
Ifo just lost his jock on that one as John Ross put a move on him
Shaq Thompson makes first two tackles of game for Huskies
20 years later, Kenny Wheaton rides onto Autzen Stadium turf on motorcycle ahead of Oregon team. And the crowd roars its approval
Philadelphia Eagles Jeff Maehl, Will Murphy & Casey Matthews (bye weekend) introduced to thunderous roar pregame at Autzen Stadium
Prediction: Oregon 28, Washington 15. Tweet me yours, or withhold your post-game bellyaching.
I just need you to know the game I can't keep coaching you
Many thanks to Legends Rich Brooks and Pete Pifer for the great "Civil War Rivalry" book signing at Eugene Duck Store http://t.co/YYJPqXBZA9
It's hard to have an off day with the right people around you
An 11-year run is coming to an end. The Moda Center court is being ripped up and replaced with new design right now. http://t.co/5xypuGlCr9
Swear ya charger can be chillen minding it's own business and somebody just gotta move it 10 phones in this house & 2 chargers ty rome
Also very cool note from tonight's game: the Blazers staff and Damian Lillard sported the Dr. Jack patches from last year's playoffs.
FINAL: Blazers 121, Haifa 74. 5 Blazers finish in double-figures. Blazers 11/23 from 3. All 17 players who played scored.
College-like handshake line at end of game. Nice.
Thomas Robinson breathing excitement into the last 30 seconds of a near 50-point game.
Excuse me. Claver has played 5:07 this preseason.
Victor Claver gets off the bench about to get his first action of the preseason.
Ah, here comes Claver
Crabbe, TRob in game. Now only roster player who hasn't played is Victor Claver, who was DNP last two games.
Thomas Robinson in the game now as well as Allen Crabbe.
In addition to his hot shooting, Wesley Matthews finished with 6 assists. His season high in '13-14 was 7.
Haifa coach Rami Hadar figured his team probably wouldn't shoot 57 percent from 3 again. They're 23 percent from there so far tonight.
Chris Kaman just connected with Meyers Leonard on a pretty alley-oop dunk. We're done here.
Kaman to Meyers Leonard for the oop. Take that, Lob City.
Will Barton coming into the game for the first time out of the timeout.
Delete one of those "hasn't played yet" guys from that list. Meyers Leonard has checked into the game late in the 3rd Q.
Lopez (13 pts, 7 rebs), Aldridge (10 points, 8 rebs, 5 asts) exit and should be done for night.
Blake checking in for Lillard, who should be done at 25 minutes. He has 11 points, 2 assists, 3 for 8 FG, 2 for 4 on 3pt.
Just realized: Will Barton hasn't played yet. There's 4:19 left in the 3rd Q.
After going 6-7 from deep vs the Clippers on Sunday, Wesley Matthews is 3-5 tonight. He's 11-18 (61%) in the preseason.
Man, the Blazers spacing can be so, so beautiful at times.
Wesley Matthews is now shooting 62.5 percent (10 for 16) on threes in preseason.
Half: Blazers 54, Haifa 35. RoLo has 9 points & 4 rebounds. Aldridge with 8 points, 4 boards. Lillard with 3 points, 2 ast in 1st game back.
Off night from the field for LA, who is 4-10. Rest of team is 18-33.
Blazers handling Haifa a little bit better than the Wiz did. Haifa didn't get in until last night.
Not that it's a huge concern, but Aldridge is 2 for 7 from field after shooting 4 for 13 in last game, vs. Clips.
End of 1: Blazers 27, Haifa 19. Haifa's Rene Rougeau leads all with 8 points. Matthews leads Portland with 6.
Fan in second row has a surgical mask on. Ebola thing?
At last second, Stotts decides to insert Wright and McCollum along with Freeland. We have an all bench unit right now (w/ Blake, Kaman).
Can't say if tossing outlets is a Kaman speciality, but I can say this: He's an underrated passer. Will fit well into Stotts' flow offense.
Joel Freeland will be next sub in. He's in hunt for backup PF spot.
I just watched Chris Kaman throw an outlet pass to a streaking LaMarcus Aldridge.
Blake and Kaman coming in. Kaman with a pretty big wrap around his left thumb/wrist area.
Stotts goes to the bench at the first timeout, inserting Blake and Kaman for Matthews and Rolo.
