    -    Tonight marks the 160th consecutive sellout at the Rose Garden (including regular season and playoffs), dating back to Dec. 21, 2007.

    -    The Trail Blazers have now won 11 consecutive home openers, all against different teams. With the win tonight, Portland improved to 31-11 all-time in home openers. In season openers, the Trail Blazers are now 25-17 overall, with an 18-7 mark when they begin the season in Portland.

    -    LaMarcus Aldridge passed Theo Ratliff for 10th place on Portland’s all-time blocked shots list tonight (389).

    -    With tonight’s win, Nate McMillan’s record as Trail Blazers head coach improved to 247-246, marking the second time he has held a winning record in Portland (other time: April 12, 2011).

    -    With tonight’s win, Portland wins the season series with Philadelphia (the teams will not meet again this year) for the first time since 2001-02 (2-0). Seven of the last eight seasons have resulted in a 1-1 split between the teams.

    -    The Trail Blazers opened the season tonight against an Eastern Conference team for the first time since 1991-92 (Cleveland), which is the last time Portland reached the NBA Finals.

    -    Marcus Camby’s 13 rebounds are the most by a Trail Blazer in a season opener since 2005-06 (Zach Randolph). At the half, Marcus Camby led Portland in rebounds (nine) and assists (four).

    -    At the end of the first quarter, Portland held a 14-0 edge in points in the paint.

    -    Raymond Felton, Kurt Thomas and Nolan Smith all connected on their first regular season field goal attempts as Trail Blazers tonight. Felton, Thomas, Smith, Jamal Crawford and Craig Smith all made their first field goal attempts in Portland’s preseason opener vs. Utah on Dec. 19.

    -    The teams combined for 10 3-pointers in the fourth quarter alone after hitting seven shots from deep in the first three quarters combined.
