Uncoiling the Western Conference Ouroboros

There's still plenty of time before the playoffs, but as the West's top nine jockey for position, each game grows in importance -- not only for homecourt advantage but for teams to potentially avoid undesirable matchups. Last postseason produced some memorable battles within the NBA's better conference. Damian Lillard helped turn Portland's first-round series against Houston into a six-act masterpiece; the Clippers set aside the Donald Sterling debacle and put away Mark Jackson's Warriors (whom they still don't seem to like very much), while a Vince Carter three-pointer nearly derailed San...

Damian Lillard off to rough start without LaMarcus Aldridge

Houston, we have a slight problem. The Portland Trail Blazers have lost five of their last six games and are giving ground in the highly competitive Western Conference. To make matters worse, yesterday it was announced that LaMarcus Aldridge will be out 6-8 weeks while recovering from a torn ligament in his left thumb. While the likes […] Damian Lillard off to rough start without LaMarcus Aldridge - Rip City Project - Rip City Project - A Portland Trailblazers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Damian Lillard vs. LaMarcus Aldridge for Portland Trail Blazers MVP

Who's Portland's MVP, Lillard or Aldridge? Would Luol Deng look good in a Blazers uniform? This and more in the Blazer's Edge Mailbag. Time to open up the Mailbag! Dave, A couple online rankings (e.g. SBnation and the NBA.com MVP ladder) now have Damian Lillard above LaMarcus Aldridge on their MVP rankings. Personally, I think it's a result of Damian's flashy play, especially in the fourth quarter, receiving a disproportionate amount of attention relative to LA's steady consistency. Since this is a mailbag, I'll keep it short, and just point out that while Damian has certainly won several...

Damian Lillard Saw Success Coming - Aldridge Needed Patience

She writes that Lillard saw the Blasers success coming even before he was drafted by Portland. He has seen other things that are about to occur such as this play when Portland played the Los Angeles Lakers...

Five Stars: HEAT 104, Clippers 90

Miami took it to the Clippers in Los Angeles, and can happily boast the top two stars in the entire NBA last night. I used the GameScore metric available at www.basketball-reference.com to tabulate who were the big winners and losers in last night's contest. First Star Chris Bosh (MIA) 27.7 (NBA first) Bosh led all players last night with 39:06 on the court, and tied Damian Lillard with a league high 34 points on 13-of-20 shooting. He hit two-of-five from outside, six of his seven free throw attempts, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out two assists. He finished his night with a plus-5...
