    Oregon Live: Denver 109, Portland 90: Injury bug bites Blazers at their least favorite arena
    "Not to make excuses, but this is a tough back-to-back," said LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 18 points, nine rebounds and three blocks. "We got in at 3a.m., the altitude, a good team, and it's not like we had it easy last night (against San Antonio). It just seemed like we were a step slow."

    Oregon Live: Blazers: With Memphis closing fast and a slew of road games coming, Portland's hold on No. 8 spot is tenuous
    "Meanwhile, the Grizzlies beat Minnesota 102-84 and improved to 26-24. The Grizzlies last had a winning record on Nov. 1 before their current four-game winning streak shot them over .500. They have the most realistic chance of passing Portland for eighth before the All-Star break."

    Rip City Project: Game 49 Recap: Nuggets 109, Blazers 90
    Portland will travel to Cleveland to take on Cavaliers to finish this road trip. Cleveland is in the midst of a nearly historic run of futility. The Cavs, as of Wednesday night, had lost an astounding 22 games in a row. The record for consecutive games lost in a single season is 23. If Cleveland wins against Memphis, in the game before Portland and Cleveland meet up, it will be a moot point. If not, Portland could be the team to hand the Cavs a record setting loss.

    AOL Fanhouse: Rudy Fernandez Wants to Stay in Portland, Andre Miller Thinks He May Leave
    "I don't really care, really,'' Miller said when asked in a FanHouse interview Wednesday whether his hope now is to remain in Portland rather than be traded. "You know what I'm saying? I would like to stay put, but it's a business and anything can happen.''

    Blazersedge: Game 49 Recap: Blazers 90, Nuggets 109
    "Honestly, this isn't the kind of loss that bothers me too much. An already short-handed Blazer team loses Wesley, but stays close in Denver on the second night of a back-to-back, only to come up short in the fourth. That's just life in the NBA. Credit to the Blazers though: even with sloppy play and mistakes, they kept fighting all night. Win or lose, that's a team I can root for. It's a loss, but not a painful one."

    Ball Don't Lie: Clyde Drexler thinks London can have a team in a decade
    "And the distance, Drexler said, won't be a problem for anyone. "Even games coming from Oregon to New York are far, but that never stopped anything," Drexler said. "It's about as far as New York to London. It's all relative. Every team has a private charter. They can go all over the world."

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.3
    "Kevin Durant posted 43 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and five three-pointers last night. He shot 74 percent (14-19) from the field, 91 percent (10-11) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. Durant is really picking up steam lately and has been the top fantasy player during the last month or so. He’s making all his opponents look like fake tough guys."

    Hang Time Blog: Behind the Box Score, where LaMarcus Aldridge is a bloody beast
    "All-Star credentials: Career-best season (21.3 points, 9 rebounds) with Brandon Roy and Greg Oden missing."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "John Wall's incredible speed can sometimes be a curse. He has used it his whole life as a deadly weapon on the court, and it has always been there for him whenever he needed to make something happen. But in the NBA, with teams expecting him to use it, he ends up sometimes blazing to a spot near the rim with no way out. The size that most teams have inside causes him all sorts of problems."
