PORTLAND - Jarrett Jack put Portland ahead from the free throw line with six seconds left Wednesday and the Trail Blazers downed Chicago 100-97.
Portland finished off a 3-3 homestand by surviving a Chicago comeback that saw the Bulls take a one-point lead with 14 seconds left on Chris Duhon's jumper. Jack was then fouled by Andres Nocioni and Jack gave Portland a 98-97 advantage with two free throws.
Nocioni then missed a three-point attempt and Brandon Roy completed the scoring with two free throws with two seconds left. Roy led Portland with 28 points, LaMarcus Aldridge had 18 and Jack 17. Chicago was paced by Nocioni and Thabo Sefolosha with 22 each.
Well I'm hoping that the Bulls would pull off a win but as you can see they were just three points short. I just want them to keep focused and continue to hold together as a team and as a family. They are scheduled to face the Warriors tonight at 10:30pm on the national channel TNT. I hope to see some push and force against Golden State because after losing to only three to Portland I anticipate some hunger for a win.
