Your Daily Blazer

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Mon, Mar 8, 2010 at 10:39 AM

Last night the Portland Blazers lost a big game on national television to a clearly superior Denver Nuggets team, and... wait, what? Andre Miller dunked the ball? Without a trampoline?

Woah. Where did that come from? Miller hasn't dunked in about three years, so this highlight is about as rare as a clutch time basket from LaMarcus Aldridge (burn!) or a Portland victory in Denver. Highflying Miller aside, the Nuggets played nearly a perfect game last night, flirting with a 70% shooting percentage before eventually finishing with an impressive 59% from the field and a 118-106 victory. While Portland's three game win streak was a reason to get optimistic, Denver made is abundantly clear that they are the team to beat in the Northwest Division. While Portland might be a playoff team, the Blazers have a long way to go before they can contend with the Nuggets.

Yeah, but did you see that Miller dunk?
