Blazers win one on the strength!


The Portland Trailblazers won one on the strength, after being down 2-0 in the series, last night! Wesley Mathews, LaMarcus Aldridge, Andre Miller, Gerald Wallace, Marcus Camby, and Brandon Roy all put points and boards up on the Mav’s. The #5 Trailblazers were originally picked by many as favorites (to upset) over the #4 Dallas Mavericks. The Trailblazers with 97-92 win are still down (2-1) in the series. Watch the highlight reel below! To add humor to the situation, the Dallas Mavericks owner complained of getting hit in the face with a U.F.O.: Read the excerpt, courtesy foxsports:

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said he was hit in the face with an object during Game 3 of the Mavs’ first-round playoff series against the Portland Trail Blazers, reports The Dallas Morning News.

“Somebody hit me in the face,’’ said Cuban after the game, according to the report. “Somebody threw something and it hit me.’’

The incident is said to have occurred with 6:56 left in the game during a timeout while Cuban was interacting with some Blazer fans.
