If you missed it earlier, Zach Harper and I recorded a podcast previewing tonight’s game. Over at his site, A Wolf Among Wolves, Danny Nowell (he of Wednesday’s phenomenal Batum post, which you should read) and I joined Zach in a 3-on-3 preview of the game, which you can read here.
Over at Hardwood Paroxysm, I wrote a piece about Brandon Roy’s current, stalled comeback attempt, which also included some reflections on his legendary game against Dallas in game four of the 2011 Playoffs. You can read that here.
One last note: As part of their Black Friday sale, Amazon is currently selling Wayne Thompson’s fantastic 2010 coffee-table book Blazermania: This is Our Story for $13.11. Having owned this book since it came out, I cannot recommend strongly enough that you jump on this deal. It’s an extremely well-written book (Thompson was the original Blazers beat writer for the Oregonian) that covers the first 40 years of team history with lots of fascinating insight and behind-the-scenes detail, tons of great photos, and some cool inserts like trading cards and replicas of score sheets for key games. It normally costs $50, and it’d be worth buying at that price. $13 is a total steal.
