    Seriously. I'm hopeful they can beat up on Yao, shock Kobe, and make it all the way to a game 7 OT victory against the Cavs. Just like I was hopeful that Obama would shock Hillary then beat McCain. But who the hell knows. Yes We Can or Maybe We Won't?

    I think a first round win is likely but not a given. We're talking like a 60% chance here. The key is to sweep the first two games, I don't want the team to have to win in Houston at all. I'm guessing Portland in 5, but it could easily be Portland in 7 or even Houston in 6.

    In the second round the assumed opponent is the Lakers, and I think it's like a 25% chance at best to beat them. They have home court, and they are just as strong against us in LA as we are against them in Portland. Most likely, LA in 6 or 7.

    Remember, at the start of the year the goal was simply to make the playoffs. This team is always ahead of its schedule. Next year I think we're division champs, top 2 seed, and make the Western Conference Finals. But not this year. This year I'm already happy and can say we've had a successful season, and a playoff series victory would be the icing on the cake. Everything after that would be house money.

    If the play like they did to night (as in not at all) they are not going anywhere. First half we had no answer for Yao, and then even when he sat we had lost all confidence and let the Rockets do whatever they wanted. I still feel like we have a chance though, despite this absolutely miserable game. They just have to come ready to play and not deflate at the first challenge.

    I agree! What happened at the RG tonight?! Disappointing.
    We have Tuesday @ home to look ahead to now though.

After every bad lose this year they have come back stonger- look out Yao on Tuesday! Go Blazers! Make adjustments, learn what you can to improve then forget this game!

    we only shot 8 free throws thru 3 quarters.........did anyone else see the terrible oficiating. i know the playoffs are rougher, but giving one team free reign to foul, and calling everything on the other end doesnt seem like good basketball. david stern was at the damn game, he should fire these jokers before they pollute the minds of other refs. given we did give up after the calls didnt go our way (which is hard not to do)

    i hate this life
    everything you worked so hard for
    in the end, you feel trashed and feeling like crap
    it doesnt even matter how hard you try or how far you push yourself
    because in life, it all turns and runs away
    your dreams and success goes down the drain
    it all falls apart and you lose it all

    the blazers had great success this season
    its either finals or bust
    the way the blazers has been playing
    it shouldnt end now, not like this
    its not right to see your success fail right before your eyes

    i made a bet with someone $10 that blazers will make the finals
    I am a fan of the team, playing together and winning together

    I think this will be a good learning experience for the team. We need to fight and take charge every possession and play with 110% intensity. It's time to show the world what Blazer Basketball is all about!

    I can sit here and think about all the matchups and how we could even be a serious threat to the team that wins the eastern conference finals, but we just have to continue doing it how we've been doing it, one game at a time.

    Portland will be a great team for many years to come! We are still ahead of schedule!

    Go Blazers!

    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...
