    A rally in March and early April with 12 wins in 16 games wasn't enough as Portland missed making it into the post season for the first time since 1982 and only the second time since winning the NBA title 28 years earlier.

    A tough overtime loss in Denver with three games remaining closed the door on Blazers playoff hopes. Battling through a series of mid-season trades of key players and a rash of injuries, Portland still managed a 41-41 finish, its 15th consecutive season and the 25th time in 28 years with a .500 or better record.

    Ten straight road losses got them off to their worst start away from home since 1981. A season high-point was a five day stretch in March when the Trail Blazers beat division leaders Minnesota twice and Sacramento once in a span of four days. An all-time record 23 players saw action for Portland during the season.

    Zach Randolph earned NBA Most Improved Player honors. Zach ranked sixth in the NBA in rebounds. Theo Ratliff led the NBA in blocked shots (3.61 bpg) and set a new team mark, averaging 4.4 blocks in just 32 games.
