  2. Oregon Live: Blazers this week: As season teeters, Portland gets double dose of Jazz, potentially stronger Nuggets
  3. "Maybe the last thing the Trail Blazers want after a disappointing Christmas Day loss to Golden State killed the momentum of a three-game winning streak is a game against the Utah Jazz."

  4. Blazersedge: Update on Portland's Other Point Guard, Petteri Koponen
  5. "Finnish point guard and Portland Trail Blazers draft pick Petteri Koponen scored the highest point total in Italian professional league this season on Boxing Day eve.Koponen totalled 36 points and lead his team Virtus Bologna through three overtimes to hard-fought 116-100 (43-51, 67-67, 81-81, 100-100) victory over Vanoli Cremona. The previous highest points total this season were courtesy of Montepaschi Siena's Lithuanian veteran Ksystof Lavrinovic and ex-San Antonio Spur James White, currently playing with Italian Dinamo Sassari - both Lavrinovic and White had 33 points earlier this season."

  6. Ball Don't Lie: Ron Artest raffled off his ring, raised more than $500k
  7. "Although he doesn't yet know the final figures, Artest's raffle has raised well over $500,000 for his Xcel University charity, which will work with high-risk youth on mental health issues. Artest said he already wrote his first $50,000 check from the proceeds to the charity."

  8. Ball Don't Lie: Video: Dwight Howard gets called for rare free-throw violation
  9. "During the second quarter of the Orlando Magic's 86-78 victory over the Boston Celtics on Christmas Day, referees whistled Magic star Dwight Howard for violating the NBA's 10-second rule for free-throw shooters. It's a pretty rare call."

  10. CBS: Joe Maloof denies Petrie, Westphal in trouble
  11. "A person with direct knowledge of recent statements by a high-ranking member of the organization painted a different picture, telling CBSSports.com that frustration with the Kings’ 5-22 record had reached a breaking point. At one point after the Kings’ 84-79 home loss to the Bucks Thursday night, owner Gavin Maloof was overheard in the tunnel saying that the culture of the organization had to change. “It’s time to hit the reset button,” Gavin Maloof said, according to the source. "

  12. ESPN: Al Harrington dislocates thumb
  13. "Harrington was injured in the second quarter. He was bringing the ball upcourt early in the period when 76ers forward Thaddeus Young knocked the ball away. Harrington left the court holding his right thumb."

  14. NBA: Morning Tip
  15. "Bad news: Blazers have lost eight of nine to Western Conference playoff teams this season. Good news: actually got through a week without a season-ending injury!"

  16. ESPN: Power Rankings
  17. "We're getting in a mention of Portland's 5-2 record without B-Roy while we can because it won't look that good next Monday if he continues to sit. Four of the Blazers' next six games are on the road, and all six are toughies."

  18. ESPN: Daily Dime
  19. "Unlike with other lottery-bound teams, the wins aren't bittersweet, because draft position doesn't mean as much to the Clippers. The confidence gained by wins is much more important than whom they could take with their first-round pick. They finally seem to be developing what the best teams have -- and what so few bad teams have -- and that is identity."
