New, comments

"Portlandia" has released a video clip that features multiple members of the Portland Trail Blazers.

Back in October, the Portland Trail Blazers hosted "Portlandia" at the team's Tualatin practice facility, as the popular IFC show filmed a skit involving the team's players.

The show's website has released a clip from the show, which is set to air on Thursday. "Portlandia" is in its fourth season.

You may not know this, but Women & Women First caretaker (ownership is so patriarchal) Candace is a trailblazer in her own right (as the first woman in Portland to wear jeans). That's part of the reason she has such an affinity for the NBA team, the Portland Trail Blazers. The Blazers' dance team, though, is a different story. Toni and Candace have many questions for the young women: Why are they doing a private dance in public? Why are they barely wearing anything? What's with all the finger pointing? They have no choice but to take their complaints straight to the top.

Here's the clip, which stars LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, Thomas Robinson and Robin Lopez.

Carrie Brownstein, who stars in the show alongside Fred Armisen, posted this photo with the Blazers to Twitter on Tuesday.

Aldridge also had a "Portlandia" cameo back in season 2.
