Look where I got to go on St. Patrick's Day! Second Quarter
A bit blurry, but here's what's happening. Six-foot-two-inch Cleveland Cavalier Daniel Gibson puts his hand in the face of six-foot-inch Portland Trail Blazer Patrick "Patty" Mills. Patty's the one who originated the the three goggles nickname. He's also He is one of the first Indigenous Australians to play basketball in the NBA. We love him here in Portland!
Patty's the three goggles!
Time out. Blazer Dancer. Can't remember the song.
Blaze comes into the crowd.
LaMarcus scores! I know because in the next shot caught the net moving just after the ball fell through it!
Rudy steals the ball! Rudy steals the ball!
Rudy gets away from the Cleveland guy!
Rudy's almost there!
Rudy goes up for his shot!
Made basket! Rudy's on the way back to play defense. Yea, Blazers!
Everyone landed safely!
Hilarious shot of one of the Blazers TV guys, Mike Rice! Believe it or not, the other guy is Mike Barrett. Mike 'n' Mike!
The dreaded in ...
... and out shot. Drat! Better luck next time, six-foot-eight Nicolas Batum.
Six-foot-seven inch Gerald Wallace flies! He's our newest Blazer!
Gerald and the ball land on the floor at about the same second, it looks like. There we have another example of those blooming shorts.
The score at half time--Blazers 64, Cavaliers 34.
Come back tomorrow for the third quarter.
