The Blazers just don't do well in Dallas. Wednesday night they gave it their best shot at another late comeback, but came up short 104-99. That is Portland's 17th loss in their last 19 visits to the home of the Mavericks. It was an opportunity missed for the young guns. The Suns, Rockets, and Hornets all lost. The Blazers are still in 4th place in the Western Conference... and have two of the next three games against the "artists formerly known as the Sonics".
Brandon Roy led Portland with 26... and Jerryd Bayless had another solid outing off the bench with 14 points.
The Blazers are back at it on Friday with their first ever meeting against Oklahoma City!
