As the Portland radio announcer exclaimed, "who woulda thunk it?"
The Blazers have made it 10 wins in a row, after defeating an undermanned Nuggets team which was lacking big men Marcus Camby and Kenyon Martin.
After a frenzied finish, with a series of free throws, Travis Outlaw continued his fine 4th quarter form of late to block a potentially game-locking three point attempt by Linas Kleiza on the buzzer.
It's party time in Rip City!
Portland's next three games are in Seattle, Minnesota and Philadelphia. All theoretically very winnable games, despite the early-season road woes of the Blazers. Hence, the Blazers could be on a 13 game winning streak coming into their New Years Eve rematch with the Utah Jazz.
What was that about chickens not being hatched?
