  • Key matchups abound as Blazers, Thunder clash

    The matchups are intriguing as the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder square off with the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday in the opener of a first-round Western Conference playoff series. All-Star point guards Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City and Damian Lillard of Portland have a sometimes heated on-court rivalry. Centers Enes Kanter of Portland and Steven Adams of OKC played together during Kanter's 2 1/2 seasons with the Thunder and should be key in what could be a rugged rebounding battle.

But I'm never certain that what happens in the regular season carries over into the playoffs.

  • Sliding scoring and playmaking assistance - comparing Westbrook's three triple-double seasons

    Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook made history by becoming the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double for three successive seasons. Electrifying guard Westbrook was named MVP after becoming just the second player to achieve the feat two seasons ago, emulating Oscar Robertson's feat from 1961-62. There has been no let-up from the eight-time All-Star since then, with another staggering campaign for the Thunder seeing records continue to fall.

  • Blazers' 28-point comeback seals first-round matchup with OKC

    Blazers' 28-point comeback seals first-round matchup with OKC originally appeared on nbcsportsnorthwest.com It was a crazy night that ended with the Trail Blazers knowing they'll face the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round of the playoffs, beginning Sunday afternoon in Portland. And speaking of crazy, that may be a nutty series, given the level of testiness between the teams for the last couple of seasons. Portland swept the Thunder last season, then got swept this season.
