Portland Trail Blazers forward Meyers Leonard may not be the most well-known player in the NBA, but outside of Moda Center you’d think the one place he’d be recognized in would be Chicago. Leonard, who’s averaging 5.8 points and 3.4 rebounds for the Trail Blazers, is from Robinson, Ill., and played college hoops with the Illinois Fighting Illini. He was an Honorable Mention...
There was 6:50 to play in the fourth quarter. With the Chicago Bulls down five coming out of a timeout, Jimmy Butler stood at the top of the three-point line, ball in hand. Evan Turner was the lone soul in charge of keeping him from the cup. Butler juked right, went left. Turner stayed with him through the dance, but fell behind when it became a sprint. Chicago’s best player put...

Last night at home, they fell 130-114 to the Houston Rockets, with star point guard James Harden dropping 38 on them. It’s no question that defense has been the biggest issue for the Blazers in this past stretch, as they’ve let up an average of 117 points per game...
In the first quarter of tonight’s Trail Blazers-Cavaliers game in Cleveland, the Blazers scored 31 points, a pretty high total. And they were outscored by one player on the Cavs! Cavs forward Kevin Love dropped a ridiculous 34 points (!!!!), good for an NBA record in the first quarter. It’s the second-best quarter in NBA history (Golden State’s Klay Thompson scored 37 in a...
Interior D is one of the major issues plaguing the 8-8 Portland Trail Blazers this season, and they may turn to the trade market in an attempt to remedy it. ESPN’s Zach Lowe said on Wednesday that “Portland looks ripe for a trade," noting general manager Neil Olshey’s pursuit of Hassan Whiteside this past offseason as well as his “well-documented fondness” for classic...
Damian Lillard didn’t mince words when characterizing how the Portland Trail Blazers have been a middling squad so far this season amid high expectations, summing up his opinion by saying, “We kind of suck right now.” Lillard made the brutal assessment shortly after the Blazers dropped to 7-6 after losing Thursday night to the Houston Rockets by a score of 126-109. “We...
Playing center alongside Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum isn't all that different than playing center alongside James Harden. You'll have to be prepared to set numerous screens per possession, play with high energy on defense to compensate for penetration, and almost never have a play run for you. It sounds harsh, but you're essentially a prop existing on the court to help your...
