The Newtown school shooting comes just a few days after a shooting at Clackamas Town Center on Tuesday. Blazers guard Damian Lillard said his mother was in the mall's parking lot at the time of the incident.
The Blazers held a moment of silence before Thursday's game against the San Antonio Spurs for the victims of the Clackamas Town Center shooting as well as other victims of "senseless violence."
Henry Abbott of TrueHoop assembled other reactions to the Newtown shooting from around the NBA community.
