    For the second time in three years and the third time in franchise history, the Trail Blazers were locked in a June battle for the world championship, this time against defending champion Chicago. Ultimately, Michael Jordan and the Bulls prevailed but not before Portland took them to The Finals series' sixth game in Chicago Stadium. The Blazers finished the regular season with the West's best record, 57-25, and tied for the second most wins overall.

    In the playoffs, Portland exacted some revenge when it eliminated the Los Angeles Lakers, in four games in first round action. The Lakers had dashed Blazers hopes for a shot at the championship the previous year by defeating them in the Western Conference Finals. A four-games-to-one win over Phoenix in the semifinals put them in the WC title round. This time they would not be denied.

    After splitting the first four games with Utah, the Blazers won at home in overtime then clinched the series by beating the Jazz on their own floor, 105-97. In the Finals' sixth game in Chicago, Portland had a 15-point lead going into the final period. But the Bulls staged the biggest fourth quarter comeback in Finals history to pull out a 97-93 victory and their second NBA title.

    Clyde Drexler became only the second Trail Blazer ever to earn 1st team All-NBA honors. He was runner-up for both NBA MVP and All-Star Game MVP honors. Playing in his sixth All-Star Game, Drexler contributed 22 points, a game-high nine rebounds, and six assists to help lead the West to a 40-point victory over the East. He finished fourth in NBA scoring (25.0 ppg). Buck Williams was on the 2nd Team All-Defense.
