Hot on the heels of my "sports post" (in which I declare Portland basketball the only sport that turns me on) the Blazers clinched a spot in the NBA playoffs. This will be the teams first chance at the post-season since 2003, the year that marked an end to Portland's unprecedented streak of 21 straight playoff appearances.

There were 14 games played in the NBA on Wednesday, and after a series of missed free-throws (New Orleans) and wild buzzer-beaters (San Antonio), the Blazers emerged with a win over the Denver Nuggets and the coveted 4th-place seeding, which translates to home-court advantage and a first round match-up against the Houston Rockets. As the franchise is wont to do during high times and fair weather, they have released yet another Blazers rap video.
