Fanhaus entry on Portland

From the Fanhaus (written up by Tom Ziller of Sactown royalty fame): http://sports.aol.com/fanhouse/2007/12/22/portlands-absurdly-infernal-10-straight-wins/

Random historical coincidence: Clyde Drexler's back-to-back WC player of the week awards also came during a long win streak, 9 games, before which Portland had 2-5 record, all five losses being consecutive, including for consecutive road losses (http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/POR/1988_games.html)

Just for kicks

Clyde's averages during the streak, if I added everything up correctly, over seven games (encompassing the two weeks):

30.1 ppg  6.7rpg   7.6apg  3.6spg  0.4bpg  3.6to/pg

.540 FG%  .810 FT%

Portland was up and down that year, W/L wise, but won 53 games by having win streaks of 9,5, and 9 games before losing to Utah in the first round (3-1).  Drexler's season averages were:

27ppg  6.6rpg  5.8apg  2.5spg  0.6bpg 2.9to/pg

.506 FG%  .212 3PT%  .811FT%
