    *UPDATE* This week's Buffalo Wild Wings Rip City Classic will be the April 12, 1992 game against the San Antonio Spurs at Memorial Coliseum
     
    The Portland Trail Blazers and corporate partner Buffalo Wild Wings have teamed up to give fans the opportunity to gather and watch classic games from the team’s rich heritage.

    Starting Wednesday, Nov. 9, seven Portland Metro-area Buffalo Wild Wings locations will simultaneously air select Trail Blazers games every Wednesday for six weeks. The games will be voted on by fans each week at trailblazers.com starting today, with polls closing on Mondays. The winning game will then be announced on Trail Blazers Courtside on Monday nights. Go here for more information and locations of participating Buffalo Wild Wings.

    For our fifth Rip City Classics, we're looking at some of the greatest team performances in Trail Blazers history. Basketball is not won or lost based on one person's performance; it's a team sport. So hop in that '85 DeLorean and go back into time to look at some of the greatest team performances in Rip City history.

    Now it is time for you to decided. You've got four options to choose from and you can vote as many times as you are able for the game you would like to see played in its entirety at seven participating Buffalo Wild Wings. Voting is set to end right before Trail Blazers Courtside airs Monday night at 6 PM.

    One last thing. Fear not if the game you want to see played doesn't win the vote this week. The "second place" videos from the first five weeks will comprise the voting options for the sixth and final Rip City Classic game. Sort of like the wild card race.

    And now, your options for the first game of the Buffalo Wild Wings Rip City Classics. Vote for the game you would most like to see from the following:


    April 12, 1992: Portland Trail Blazers vs. San Antonio Spurs at Memorial Coliseum
    Even with Clyde Drexler sidelined, the Trail Blazers were still able to clinch the Pacific Division crown for the second year in a row as they romped the Spurs, 123-97. Portland had six players score in double figures but no Trail Blazer had a finer night than the big man, Kevin Duckworth. Duck put forth one of his finest outings of the season as he scored 23 and grabbed 12 boards in the win.



    November 13, 1990: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Denver Nuggets at Memorial Coliseum
    The Trail Blazers were in a giving mood on the night of November 13th, 1990. En route to their sixth straight win to open up the '91 campaign, the Trail Blazers dished out a mind-blowing 49 assists on 63 made baskets to destroy the Nuggets, 155-129. Of the nine Trail Blazers who saw action, eight scored in double figures, lead by Clyde Drexler's 39 points. Also of note, the backcourt duo of Drexler and Porter combined by 25 assists.


    February 1, 1986: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Clippers at Memorial Coliseum
    The Trail Blazers got a combined 66 points from Kiki Vandeweghe and Mychal Thompson as well as an astounding 63 bench points during their 156-121 victory over the Clippers. The 156 points scored by the Trail Blazers set a franchise-record for points in a regular season game.


    April 22, 1990: Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers at Memorial Coliseum
    During the season finale of 1990, the Trail Blazers blasted the Lakers, 130-88, handing Los Angeles one of their worst defeats in franchise history. Portland earned their 59th win of the season by dominating the glass (56-45 advantage) and playing team basketball (37 assists, 7 players in double figures). Lead by Cliff Robinson and Mark Bryant, the Trail Blazers bench ramped up for the playoffs with a 54 point showing. Beat L.A.!

    Got to see the 91 Blazers against the Nuggets. Not only did the Glide drop 39 but it seemed like an entire team effort. Also, that win was during one of the most memorable months of Blazers basketball we've ever had. It was our 6th in a row to start off the season which lead to a 19-1 start.

    Blazers v. Spurs. Must re-live the great game from Duckworth! IIRC, Porter and a few others did the "cooling him off" motion with the towel when he was substituted for at the end of the game.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
