Brandon Roy is this week’s Western Conference Player of the Week.  The Natural was instrumental in a 4-0 record for the Blazers this week including W’s over the Spurs and the Lakers.  Roy is now side-by-side with Clyde Drexler as the only pair in franchise history to win the award four times.

On Monday, the entire GNPDX staff will be chaning their Facebook status to “NAME LOVES the Dallas Mavericks.”

The Mavs’ 140-116 shoot out – blow out of the Suns Sunday bumped the Blazers into the Playoffs for sure, marking the first time since 2003 that the squad will play after the regular season.

There are five games left in the regular season and, as of this post, the Blazers sit in fifth place, right behind the Houston Rockets.

Not so warm welcome

Still holding the 4th-best record in the West, the Blazers added another symbolic trophy to the display case: Sending Darius Miles home with an L.

Miles made his return to the Rose Garden wearing a Memphis jersey after a tempestuous relationship with management and fans while on the Blazer’s squad and since leaving the team last season.

A few clutch shots down the stretch sealed the 94-90 win for the boys from the Rose City, while fans made their dislike for Miles known with heavy boos throughout the game.  For his part, Miles landed six points and four blocks against three turnovers in his 17 minutes on the hardwood.  Then again, boos don’t seem to phase Miles that much.  After the game he pointed out he got plenty of boos while dressed in the red and black.  I guess you can go home again.

The Natural does it again

Late in the second half, the boys from the Rose City surrendered a 17-point advantage to the Knicks.  Down by as much as 13, The Blazers AGAIN turn ed in a heroic, last-second performance, charging back and grabbing the win 109-108.
The last two points came courtesy of The Blazers All Star and leader, Brandon Roy who socked a clutch jumper in the waning seconds of the fourth.  The near-circus layup also clinched the Blazers an NBA leading 5-1 record in games decided by a point.


Also of note, Greg Oden set a career high with 6 blocked shots while Travis Outlaw sinking nine of his points in the last five minutes of regulation.
