Again, the City of Roses is tittering as its plucky, resourceful "Trail Blazers" basket-ball team attempts to win the fourth game out of five against the "Rockets" of Houston, Texas. A positive result this evening would result in Portland's winning the playoff series and moving on to the next round to face either the "Spurs" of San Antonio or "Mavericks" of Dallas. Our gritty bunch of cagers must be awfully fatigued after the long train journey from Portland to Houston for tonight's game, but they and their supporters would happily embrace the promise of several more train trips to Texas. Tonight's game "tips off" shortly after 6:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. Supporters may receive frequent score updates by stopping in at telegraph offices throughout Portland; special "food carts" will be set up outside, serving fried tallow, watery beer and heavy irony.
