Portland Trail Blazers News: Win Over the Knicks, Aldridge is Awesome, Power Rankings

New, comments

Catching up with the Trail Blazers news from around the internet.

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

As a Blazers news reader, I like to see what is said AFTER a game.... especially after an east coast game. Looking at todays news, the east coast writers do acknowledge the Blazers winning, but more is mentioned about NY's losing ways, and in fact, Phil Jackson emerged today to share his takes on NY's lack of wins (which garnered more east coast/national commentary). With that being said.....

What I like about the Blazers?. They seem to be quietly going about their business. Wins have a way of solving the worlds problems. Not a ripple of player discontent......well, there was the Victor Claver upheaval last week and that news had to be interpreted. Injuries have been minor (knock on wood). So lets hope the good mojo continues.... and the wins keep coming.
