LaMarcus Aldridge "M-V-P" chants have busted out early at the Moda Center vs Jazz ... while he shoots FTs in the 3rd Q.
The fact that Jeremy Evans - who is listed at 197lbs - is guarding LaMarcus Aldridge is perplexing and ridiculous. What is Ty Corbin doing?
Aldridge has third straight double-double.
Jeremy Evans guarding LaMarcus Aldridge straight up with no help. Yep, Utah is tanking. And the crowd chants "MVP" for Aldridge at the line.
Lillard was in attack mode the first half. Setting guys up this half.
Should note Burke not in game. Didn't notice if he started quarter.
Scorers gave Aldridge a steal when he swatted ball from Favors. Always think those are border-line blocks. LA has more steals than blocks.
Aldridge, by the way, could get his rebounding average up to 10 if he gets to 15 tonight. He has 9 at halftime.
End of 1st half. Blazers 67 Jazz 56. Lillard 21 points, 2 assists. Aldridge 9 points, 9 rebounds. Hayward and Favors with 8 points each.
Nice sequence from Matthews. Backs down and draws a foul on offense. Draws an offensive foul on Hayward on defense.
Jazz with 30 points in the paint already. 16 in Q2.
Jazz having Jeremy Evans, listed at 197 pounds, guard Aldridge.
The Jazz are playing some great bad basketball. It doesn't get any better.
Blazers looking SHARP this quarter.
Jazz on a 16-3 run and cut the deficit to eight. Blazers lead 48-40 with 7:05 left in the second quarter.
That's some serious range by Dorell Wright on a step-back 3
End of 1st Q. Blazers 39 Jazz 22. Lillard 13 points, 2 assists. Aldridge 6 points, 5 rebounds. Matthews and Batum with 5 points each.
Utah's Jeremy Evans (6-9, 197) makes Travis Outlaw look beefy
With 2:49 left in the first quarter, every Blazer that has taken a shot is shooting 50 percent or higher from the field. Blazers up 30-16.
Joel Freeland, offensive foul.
Joel Freeland, offensive weapon.
Blazers now at 70 percent FG shooting
Pretty sure Jazz had that out-of-bounds play scouted, but just fell asleep as coach Ty Corbin looked pretty mad about it.
2 teams with winning records in East: Indiana & Miami. Put Jazz in that conference and they're playoff contender. OK, maybe not
Trey Burke is almost certainly the least experienced PG Lillard has faced in NBA. Lillard with 10 points in first 5 minutes.
That's a rather impossible step-back 3-point shot to defend, Mr. Lillard
Blazers president Chris McGowan defends McDonald's Egg McMuffin: "Although it's not a Chalupa, it's still something people like."
"Don't start chanting Chalupa in here," Chris McGowan joked to City Club of Portland when topic of 100-point promotion came up.
"We probably won't be that edgy going forward because we're not there to ruffle feathers," Chris McGowan said of tweet mocking East.
Blazers president Chris McGowan tells Portland City Club that "Is it too late to join East?" Tweet raised daily Twitter mentions 7-fold
I wish it snowed in Portland like it does back home in Illinois.
Suns have two points guard, two guys in backcourt who can create. That's why Boone believes Phoenix is playing decent ball.
Ron Boone, former ABA/NBA star, says Trey Burke's increased minutes have resulted in open shots for Jazz. They're at Portland tonight.
Edgar Martinez said nobody's ever asked him if he used PEDs. I asked. His answer: "No." Should guys of his era all have to answer that?
A record! Just managed to watch four minutes of “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” Never before made it longer than 30 seconds
UW's Tyee Club must be so intoxicated it probably wants to hire Mark Few to run intramural teams.
Which Pac-12 coach would you MOST want as your team's coach? Who mows the greenest grass?
Brewer said best sports week in Seattle in a decade. Yes, better than 2008 when everyone had a losing record and the Sonics left.
Total face-saving move by Washington… must have handed Chris Petersen the keys and a truck-load of gold. Great for the conference.
Portland id like to thank you do making me feel back at home with this light snow lol
Anybody know where to find out what % of a player's shots are contested vs uncontested?
Today’s sports radio: “OK, let’s talk World Cup draw… “So… how about those Blazers!"
Cameroun dans le groupe du Brésil...finale avant l heure
I feel sorry for young men and woman. You can't be persistent with pursuing someone without being considered "thirsty" ... Ridiculous
