With baseball season in full swing, I've neglected keeping up on the Trail Blazers and their playoff series with Dallas. Heck, checking the game update early this evening, I immediately left the website as they were getting blown out towards the end of the third quarter. So, imagine the shock when I found out tonight that Portland came back from a 23 point deficit to beat the Mavericks. And once again, Brandon Roy showed why he's been such a popular figure with Blazer fans. Big game Brandon scored 18 of his 24 points in the forth quarter, bringing the Blazers back from the dead to even the series at 2. John Canzano of the Oregonian put it best, when he said, "Make no mistake, Roy didn't just take over the game. He is in charge of this series."
For a team that has been a perpetual underachiever, the Blazers might just win this series!
