    Trail Blazers: Portland Returns Home With Loss To Milwaukee
    "Too many crooked numbers up here on the stat sheet. We didn’t do a good job defensively tonight and you’ve got to give them credit," said Portland coach Kaleb Canales. "They’re a hot team and they played like they’ve been playing and we didn’t take them out of their game."

    Trail Blazers: Trail Blazers 87, Bucks 116: Post-Game Notes
    "Wesley Matthews converted on 11 consecutive 3-point attempts before missing tonight in the second quarter, his fifth attempt of the night from downtown. The last NBA player to make 11 straight 3-point field goals was Mike Miller from February 3-10, 2010 while playing with the Washington Wizards."

    Trail Blazers: Humble Matthews Excels In Return To Starting Lineup
    "Wesley Matthews was a bright spot in the Rose Garden tonight as the Trail Blazers fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 116-87. But don’t ask him about his stand-out performance, because to Matthews the team comes first. “My game doesn’t even matter because we didn’t win” he said. “I’m just trying to do anything I can to help the team win.”

    Trail Blazers: Bucks Roll Through Portland
    "After the game I got to spend 10 minutes with Brandon in the Blazer weight room, and witnessed several of his ex-teammates walk through to give a hug and share a word or two. Brandon told me he's watched nearly every game this season, and even though that was good to hear, it was a painful reminder of all that we've been through lately. We saw Greg Oden in Indiana last week for the last time as a roster player for the Trail Blazers, and then saw Nate McMillan off in Chicago just days later."

    “We’re going to stick together, and we’re focusing on practice tomorrow,” Canales said.

    Oregon Live: Former Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan discusses his exit
    "I mean, we were playing some bad basketball. Something was going to happen, you just knew it," McMillan said Tuesday in his first interview since his firing. "To sit here and think that I wasn't going to be looked at ... I wasn't sitting here thinking I was untouchable. They made a tough decision, but they made it, and I respect that."

    Columbian: Home brings no relief for Blazers against Bucks
    "We played good the last two games, and then we finally came back home in front of our home crowd, and we thought we could relax," Batum said. "That's the first thing that coach said -- 'be careful.' The first game after a long road trip, sometimes you think 'finally, we're here.'"

    Portland Tribune: No defense, no win for Portland, Canales
    "Milwaukee’s bench outscored its Portland counterparts 45-9. Blazer reserves missed their first 23 shots from the field and finished 2 for 29. Nolan Smith was 1 for 9 and Jamal Crawford 1 for 8. “We have to do more, no question about it,” Crawford said. “When the starters are in and they have the lead, we have to either maintain it or make it grow. We have to get back on track.”

    Rip City Project: Game 46 Recap: Blazers 87, Bucks 116
    "The Blazers needed to start over, really start over. Get beyond Brandon (and Greg Oden, but he was never really here in the first place). Get beyond the patch-work rebuilds (Marcus Camby, Gerald Wallace, Andre Miller), and just burn the whole thing to the ground. Brandon was gone. It made sense that the coach that made him who he was should go with him."

    Blazersedge: Blazers G Elliot Williams To Undergo Surgery On Left Shoulder On March 30; Done For Season
    "As reported on Tuesday night, Portland Trail Blazers guard Elliot Williams is headed for surgery on his left shoulder. The Blazers announced Wednesday morning that Williams will have the procedure on March 30 in Los Angeles to "repair his left dislocated shoulder capsule." The team also officially confirmed Williams is done for the remainder of the regular season, as expected."

    "Just stick with us," Felton said. "The boos is about -- they just want us to win, to succeed. It's not about the boos being a bad thing... They have every right to boo. We got our behinds handed to us in our building. That's not acceptable. I can see why they are upset. I'm upset. Know what I'm saying? To the fans, just stick with us. We're fighting. It's been a crazy season. 66 games in a tight time. Just don't give up on us."

    Ball Don't Lie: The Memphis Grizzlies had a tea party with young patients, and it was the greatest
    "I saw the most excited kids on the planet," said Rick Shadyac, CEO of the American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC), the fundraising arm of St. Jude. "They saw their idols, the stars that they get to watch on television every single day, walk into their housing facility and immediately ran up to them and wanted to get autographs and get photographs taken with them. It was their opportunity to meet their heroes."

    Ball Don't Lie: Video: DeMarcus Cousins coaches the Sacramento Kings
    "Cousins' chic ensemble — jacket, towel, T-shirt and shorts — was finished beautifully by the wad of tissue stuffed into his nostril to staunch the bleeding that resulted from a third-quarter collision with Memphis' Dante Cunningham. It's like Oscar de la Renta always says: All of the interesting fashion innovations come from Sacramento."

    DIME: Daily Fantasy Basketball Diagnosis: 3.21
    "Wesley Matthews: 6-13 FG (46%), 4-4 FT (100%), 5 threes, 21 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO; Matthews should benefit from the departure of Gerald Wallace. His owners can expect more consistency going forward."

    SLAM: Post-Up: Rocket Launcher
    "Apparently Drew Gooden heard us making fun of him for that triple-double the other night, so he (of Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors) dropped 19 on the Blazers to lead the Bucks in what was nothing short of a blowout, and Milwaukee stayed a half-game back of New York for the No. 8 seed in the East. Life after Nate McMillan, Gerald Wallace and Marcus Camby is off to a tumultuous start for the Blazers, who shot 35 percent from the field while allowing the Bucks to shoot 58 percent. New Buck Monta Ellis had 14 points and 9 dimes and backcourt mate Brandon Jennings essentially matched him with 15 and 6 of his own. Milwaukee took advantage of 20 Portland turnovers, and held the Blazers’ bench to just 9 points. LaMarcus Aldridge led PDX with 21 points and 12 rebounds in a losing effort."

    ESPN: Debate: Knicks-Sixers, Lakers-Mavs
    "Fact. Same team, same quirky personalities, yes, but now with a skipper who intends to use them differently. The biggest difference has been Woodson's ability to get the most out of his guys where it matters most: on defense and on the glass. The Knicks have out-bounded their last four foes. Of course, playing four in a row against sub-elite teams certainly helps."
