Eventually the smoke will clear and the dust will settle from this magical, chaotic Trail Blazers playoff run. But we’ll do the best we can today, the morning after the season came to an end with a 119-117 overtime loss in Game Four to the Warriors, the Western Conference champions for a fifth straight year.
How satisfying was it to watch, Rip City? Yes, getting swept from the playoffs always hurts, but there were so many bright spots and unforgettable memories from the ride. From Dame’s epic Game Five winner to sink OKC, to Rodney’s 4-OT heroics in Game 3 vs Denver, to CJ’s 37-point dominance to win Game Seven on the road, and clinch a spot in the Western Conference Finals for the first time since 2000.
