Blazers beat Heat = Heat Stink, Thunder beat Heat = Thunder Rule

Okay, this is my first fan post.

My frustration is this:  A few weeks ago the Blazers go into Miami, beat the Heat 105-96 after the Heat were talking about putting on a beating on Portland, and the following headlines on ESPN are all about the Heat.  The Heat are terrible, the Heat are crying, the Heat keep choking, Heat Heat Heat Heat.   No real mention about Gerald Wallace finding his feet as a Blazer, the great, clutch night Roy had, nothing. 

Then tonight the Thunder beat the heat in OKC 96-85 and ...

Now the story is about how great and deep the Thunder are, how they look like world beaters, and what an amazing team they are!  The headlines are all about the Thunder's ascension to contender status, how they challenged the best the Heat had to offer and emerged victorious. 

This is ridiculous.  I get that ESPN its favorite teams, but c'mon, this is getting pretty blatant.  

Why is it that Portland just can't seem to get a fair shake in the media?  All that ever shows up on the national news is the injuries.  This team has, again, overcome huge obstacles and is arguably a better team today than any time in the past 4 years and a playoff nightmare for any team they face (even OKC the anointed next big thing).
