  2. Oregon Live: New Jersey 98, Portland 96: If you lose to Nets, then what? Blazers huddle up
  3. "We're at a tough point right now," said Brandon Roy, who finished with 21 points, four assists and four rebounds. "It's a young season. We've lost three games in a row and we're .500, so it's a difficult time. But we have to stick together and really see what we're made of."

  4. Oregon Live: NBA High-5: Blazers can't got forth without first solving their problems in fourth quarter
  5. "The Blazers have been playing OK -- even well -- in the first three quarters, but have been just awful in the fourth. In their last four games (starting with their 86-83 home win over Denver), the Blazers have averaged just 17 points in the fourth while shooting 30 percent (24 for 80) in the quarter. They've also committed 13 turnovers in the fourth, including 12 in the three losses."

  6. Columbian: Nets edge Blazers, 98-96
  7. "The two teams traded the lead five times during the fourth quarter, before Harris nailed the long jumper from beyond the top of the key. Portland turned the ball over on its next possession."

  8. Blazersedge: Game 16 Recap: Trail Blazers 96, Nets 98
  9. "The more interesting development might be the (presumed) message to Nicolas Batum. Most of the night he wasn't even trying to move on offense. He'd simply drift to the weak corner and stand. On the occasions he was open his teammates ignored him. Feet in the paint would be a good thing for Batum's offense. Defensively he was so-so...not horrible but not bending the game at all. The Blazers desperately need Batum to step up. If he has to get slapped upside the head to do it then it's a good move. If this doesn't work, something had better."

  10. Rip City Project: Game 16 Recap: Nets 98, Blazers 96
  11. "Brandon Roy looked good, and even though there were times he slowed down the offense it’s better for the Blazers to have him on the court. Wesley Matthews looked like he was in sync with Roy, finishing with a team-high 25 points. Wes passed up a few good looks from deep that could have been difference makers, but overall his play was a bright spot, and the fact that he might be able to find a place coming off the bench makes the future look a little nicer.."

  12. ESPN True Hoop: Save a timeout or two
  13. "The basic procedure in crunch time, when trailing, is: The other team gets the ball. You foul immediately. (This can take less than a second.) They shoot free throws. (The clock is stopped, except for the time it may take to rebound a miss, and call timeout.) You call timeout, and move the ball to halfcourt. (The clock is still stopped.) You inbound it (the clock only starts when a player touches it, and players can catch and shoot in under a second) and run one of those quick-hitter plays you have practiced many times before. Rinse, wash, repeat. "

  14. Ball Don't Lie: Video: LeBron James bumps his coach, again
  15. "LeBron James is known for taking passive/aggressive shots at his coaches. Whether he's dealing with Paul Silas or tolerating Mike Brown or griping about Erik Spoelstra's minutes allotment, it hardly matters. LeBron James is the king, in his own mind, and he's not to be touched."

  16. Ball Don't Lie: An NBA and D-League first: Terrence Williams demoted as punishment
  17. "Players have been "sent down" to the D-League before, but it's been for seasoning. A move to allow younger players court time that they wouldn't see in NBA action, in order for them to develop confidence, along with secondary offensive moves or a bit of all-around expertise. But this is the first time the D-League has been used as a disciplinary measure. Williams cannot be happy with being sent to the Springfield Armor, and some of the D-League's most ardent admirers aren't happy with an otherwise-useful organization being used as a punishment."

  18. ESPN: Daily Dime
  19. "The sad thing that crossed your mind as you watched Brandon Roy hobble to the scorer's table late in the fourth quarter, then promptly dribbling the ball out of bounds off his own foot, was that this is what we're going to be seeing from Roy -- not necessarily the unforced turnover, but certainly the gimpy gait -- for the foreseeable future."
