    NorthJersey: Nets, Blazers talking about Devin Harris deal
    "The Nets want to expand the trade and are trying to include disappointing free-agent signing Travis Outlaw, who began his career in Portland. The Blazers are interested in shooting guard Anthony Morrow."

    Oregon Live: Portland 103, New Orleans 96: Blazers' winning streak grows to season-high six games
    "I like where we are right now," coach Nate McMillan said, showing the same stoic face he put on when the likes of Greg Oden, Brandon Roy and Marcus Camby went down with injuries."

    Rip City Project: Game 56 Recap: Blazers 103, Hornets 96
    "Wesley Matthews and Andre Miller put together some fantastic plays late in the game. Wesley has trouble with his own dribble, he plays much better off the ball and getting his own shot but is not much a facilitator, but was making sharp, perfectly timed cuts off the ball that ended in easy buckets at the rim. Regardless of which coach is running the show, New Orleans has for the past few seasons been known as a hard nosed defensive team. Their bigs use their hands and bodies to get position, and their guards are fast and physical. The off the ball movement was key to getting Portland easy looks, and those easy looks were key to getting and then holding the lead late in the game. Wesley finished with 24 points. Andre added 18 points and led all players with seven assists."

    Blazersedge: Game 56 Recap: Trail Blazers 103, Hornets 96
    "LaMarcus Aldridge, what can we say? Even if it's only for a month, this has been the most phenomenal stretch of concentrated dominating basketball we've seen since Clyde Drexler used to do it regularly around these parts. Brandon Roy has had better games but Aldridge has packed all of them into a few weeks. The team needed him badly down the stretch tonight and he delivered. 13-18 shooting, 8-9 from the line, 34 points, 7 rebounds, and don't discount the 4 assists and the 1 block, all of which were devastating in their effect on a Hornets team trying to keep pace. Wow. Just wow."

    Philly.Com: A Speights for Cunningham trade?
    "As a proposed trade, the Blazers offered forward Dante Cunningham, a Villanova product, as well as a second-round draft pick.

    Ball Don't Lie: Behind the Box Score, where we're missing Chris Paul
    "14 points and nine assists for Paul in the month of February, not too bad, but not commensurate with his gifts. CP3 has hit just 17 of his last 54 shots, and that's spread out over five games. This isn't a man who should be taking fewer than 11 shots a night, regardless of NOLA's slow pace, and making just over three of those attempts on average. And it's not like he's tearing it up in the assist department, at just under eight a game in that turn.''

    ESPN: Rudy Gay out at least four weeks
    "Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay will miss at least four weeks with a left shoulder injury, a potentially serious blow to Memphis' playoff chances.''

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 2.17
    "Martell Webster: 11 Pts, 1 three, 2 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl; He started for the first time this season and played 39:33. If he continues to start for the Timberwolves, Webster will be worth monitoring in many leagues."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "As he walked off the Air Canada Centre floor after the Heat's 103-85 win over his former Raptors teammates, Chris Bosh looked up to the crowd and blew kisses. Half of the fans started to cheer and half of them continued to boo in a moment that was as odd and unprecedented as many have been since July"
