Running Down a Dream: Western Conference Semi-Finals

After being taken to the brink in the opening round of the playoffs, the Trail Blazers playoffs didn't get any easier as their perennial rivals from the Midwest, the Utah Jazz were up next. Portland looked liked the 63 win team, using their depth to outplay the Utah duo of Malone and Stockton to the tune of a 4-1 series win. The Blazers were led by the amazing all-around play of Clyde Drexler, who nearly averaged a triple-double for the entire series by going for 19.8 ppg, 10 rpg, and 9.6 apg.


  1. Refs used to give Malone so many calls. That asshole would run into the lane with his foot out, trying to kick people in the chest. Then the refs would call an and-one. What a dick.

  2. Jerk of a player and rumored to be an even bigger jerk to his kids. I love beating those Jazz teams. Since 1990, they have never won a road playoff game in Portland in 14 tries (91,92,96,99,00).
