    Trail Blazers: Roy Likes It Rowdy, Wallace Won't Change And Andre Ain't Done
    ""It was good to get those minutes," said Roy. "I think the biggest thing is to continue to try and get my legs. The only way you can get your cardio is playing past the minutes I've been playing. But it was good to be out there in a tough game, so hopefully I can continue to build on tonight." "

    Trail Blazers: Blazers Survive Magic Kingdom
    "McMillan spends most of his time during games about five feet from where I call the game. Once I was told about the replay, I alerted Nate that he should ask for a review of the shot. During the next time out, he did. Bill Spooner looked at the shot from several angles and agreed that Aldridge was behind the line. The score was changed, and the Blazers were given a point. That has happened one other time this season. In the game against the Lakers at home recently, Kobe had a foot over the three-point line and was given a three. We told Nate to ask for a replay, and it was changed to a two."

    Oregon Live: Trail Blazers guard Andre Miller quietly moves up NBA's All-Time list by keeping teammates happy
    “In this business, it’s hard to make everyone happy,’’ Miller said Monday night after he helped the Blazers beat Orlando 89-85. “You have to figure out when to distribute the ball, who to distribute it to, who’s hot, who to get going ... there’s a lot of stuff to do as a point guard and worry about yourself a little, too. I just try to do the best I can to keep everyone happy and involved.’’

    Oregon Live: Trail Blazers win again and climb into sixth place even though their shooting has cooled off
    " Those who keep harping on the idea that Gerald Wallace needs to be in the starting lineup might note that Wallace played 33:15 last night -- with only Miller and LaMarcus Aldridge logging more minutes. Also, Wallace and Brandon Roy were on the court at the end of the game, which to many in the NBA is more important than starting."

    Rip City Project: Game 63 Recap: Blazers 89, Magic 85
    "Portland took advantage of Howard not being in the middle by attacking the rim off the dribble and on cuts, and also started to knock down outside shots. Orlando was able to keep it close by knocking down shots of their own, but the Blazers managed to keep Orlando from coming all the way back by holding the Magic in check on defense. Again a fair amount of Portland’s good defense came from Orlando’s bad offense, but either way, the Blazers kept the Magic’s gunners from getting hot and making the Blazers pay for missed shots.."

    Blazersedge: Game 63 Recap: Trail Blazers 89, Magic 85
    " LaMarcus Aldridge had a very good game but it should have been spectacular. Though guarded by smaller players all night he never established deep post position until late in the game. Part of this is attributable to his teammates not hitting any open threes, of which they had several. Even a couple deep connections would have spread the Magic defense. Even so, Aldridge didn't even attempt to set down low. When he posted he was 18 feet from the basket, playing right into Orlando's hands. Stopping his moves from that far out looked comically easy. On the rare occasions he did post deep he either scored or got fouled."

    Hoopsworld: Gerald Wallace Didn't See Trade Coming
    "In the hours leading up to the trade deadline, Wallace was confident that he wasn't going anywhere. That's because the decision makers in Charlotte repeatedly told him that he wouldn't be traded. Even on the morning of Feb. 24, the team reiterated that they had no plans to move him.''

    Ball Don't Lie: Warriors owner insults bloggers, apologizes quickly
    "To clarify, Joe Lacob loves the online community, yet finds that many people who complain to him over the Internet are inveterate liars who don't actually support the team with their hard-earned dollars. I'm not sure how that answer fits a question about bloggers, but Lacob makes more money than me, so, according to the Worthington Law, he's probably right.''

    Houston Chronicle: Adelman joins exclusive club. Rockets resurgence shows one way he did it.
    "Truthfully, I'm shocked by it," Adelman said. "When I got the job in Portland, I never expected to do it 20 years. I didn't know what to expect. To do it this long and have three really good situations, I know how fortunate that is. I've seen really good coaches get thrown into situations where you're not going to win. You may never get another shot.''

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "Goes 0-for-7 from the field in Utah's rout at the hands of New York. Harris' four points were his lowest output in six games with his new team, which appears ready to slouch below .500 in the weeks ahead.''

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Diagnosis: 3.8
    "Carmelo Anthony posted 34 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and hit four three-pointers last night. He shot 75 percent (12-16) from the field, 100 percent (6-6) from the free-throw line and had two turnovers. This was a nice bounce-back game after shooting just 33 percent from the field on Sunday. Anthony’s stats have remained mostly steady since his transition into a Knicks uniform, with improvements in threes made and points per game."
