    Oregon Live: Portland 95, Minneapolis 81: Night with Aldridge and Love turns into a romp for Cunningham
    "Aldridge mockingly called Cunningham "Charles Barkley," "superstar" and "All-Star" at different points. The reserved Cunningham just laughed it off. When the Blazers weren't ribbing Cunningham to his face, they were praising him behind his back."

    "Just trying to lead my team, you know?" Aldridge answered. "I think Kevin Love is going to be a Hall of Famer. He rebounds with the best of them. He deserves to be in that game. Now, I'll just try to lead my team to the playoffs."

    Rip City Project: Game 55 Recap: Blazers 95, Timberwolves 81
    "Monday night followed the usual Minnesota/Portland script. The Blazers dominated the Wolves, leading by double-digits most of the night before finishing off Minny by 14, and LaMarcus outscore Love 21-to-12. Which, of course, leads to the real discrepancy in the KLove/LA rivalry. Kevin Love is the All-Star. I was shaking my head when the announcement was made, and I’m shaking my head right now."

    "Dante Cunningham combined the last three weeks of effort into one game tonight. He was a whirlwind on the boards, nabbing 13, plus he shot 9-14 for 18 points. He moved faster than anyone out there tonight, including the small guards."

    "Nah, LaMarcus Aldridge doesn’t carry a grudge. Sure, he’s already forgotten the All-Star snub. But just in case you did, too, he scored 36 or more points in three Portland wins and shot 63 percent from the field to get named Western Conference player of the week."

    Ball Don't Lie: Rick Adelman considers retirement
    "With Sloan already gone, Jackson set to retire after this season, and Adelman possibly on his way out, as well, we're seeing the end of an era for this group of coaches. It's hard to imagine the NBA without them, but times change. The question is, with coaching changes more common than ever and several flirting with burnout, will we ever see lifers like Sloan and Adelman again?''

    NBA: Morning Tip
    "Portland (3-0): Four straight wins overall to stay ahead of surging Memphis for the final playoff spot. Cousin LaMarcus: averaging 33 points, 9.3 boards, shooting 56.7 percent from the floor in three wins this week, including 42 in the win over the Bulls.''

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.15
    "Dante Cunningham: 18 Pts, 13 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl; He should be a consideration in deeper leagues and monitored in others."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "Kwame Brown outrebounds Andrew Bynum. Yes, easy to pile on the 20-point loss for the Lakers, who can be thankful the Cats are not in the West as a 7-8 seed. Lakers have lost eight of last 10 to MJ's crew."
