Strong Second Half Propels Bol-less Oregon Over Boise State, Ducks 66 - Broncos 54

Strong Second Half Propels Bol-less Oregon Over Boise State, Ducks 66 - Broncos 54

EUGENE, OREGON DUCKS 66 - BRONCOS 54 The Oregon Ducks (7-3) defeated the Boise State Broncos (4-6) by a score of 66 to 54. Before the game started, Oregon announced that they would be without Bol Bol, who suffered an undisclosed left foot injury sometime last week. Bol, the team’s leading scorer with 21 points per game, was forced to ride the bench in a protective boot and for the first half of the game it appeared Oregon’s offense would not be able to overcome his absence. But after being held to a measly 24-point opening half, the Ducks outscored the Broncos 42 to...

Jusuf Nurkic Trade Proved Pivotal for Nuggets, Trail Blazers

Jusuf Nurkic Trade Proved Pivotal for Nuggets, Trail Blazers

The Athletic takes an inside look at the trade that brought Portland their starting center and confirmed Denver in theirs. Before the February, 2017 trade that brought center Jusuf Nurkic to the Portland Trail Blazers, he was paired with Nikola Jokic in a big-man lineup long on height, short on experience together. With both seven-footers young and eager to play, the Nuggets had a decision to make: build the next version of the Twin Towers or move one of their bigs. When the Blazers came calling with Mason Plumlee, the Nuggets bit and the rest is history. Now Nick Kosmider of The Athletic...

Blazers Guard Nik Stauskas Learning to Operate Within a Role

Blazers Guard Nik Stauskas Learning to Operate Within a Role

It’s taken a few stops, but Stauskas is getting comfortable in the system and in his own skin. Portland Trail Blazers guard Nik Stauskas is averaging 7 points in 17 minutes per game this season, shooting 42% from the field and 36% from the three-point arc. Those numbers are a far cry from what might have been expected when the Sacramento Kings drafted him 8th overall in the 2014 NBA Draft, but they’re plenty good for a player whose career was all but lost just a season ago. Michael Grange of SportsNet Canada picks up on this theme in an article about Stauskas, chronicling his early...

The Blazers Should Stay Far Away from Jabari Parker

The Blazers Should Stay Far Away from Jabari Parker

Bad shooting and worse defense? Not what Portland needs. Even if the Chicago Bulls are willing to trade him, the Portland Trail Blazers should go nowhere near the tire fire that is Jabari Parker. If you’ve followed me for any period of time you’d know that I’ve been a proponent of breaking up the Blazer’s backcourt since 2015. I love Damian Lillard. I like CJ McCollum. I’ve never thought that together (without serious help) they could elevate into the top tier of the NBA. I’ve wanted Portland to make a move for a longer and more athletic wing player for years. Someone who can...
