At home, at the Moda Center in Portland in a historic game of 4 overtimes….The Portland Trail Blazers edged the Denver Nuggets 140-137 on Friday night!

It was one of the most nail-biting exciting games in NBA history and certainly one of the most memorable for the Blazers, after four overtimes, CJ McCollum intercepted a Paul Millsap inbound pass at halfcourt to allow Portland to outlast Denver, 140-137.  Blazers now lead the series 2 games to 1.

Game four set for Sunday in Portland. Hear the game on 106.5FM and 1240AM THE WINNER CBS SPORTS RADIO from Wynne Broadcasting!

Earlier today:

It’s Game 3 tonight for the Blazers and Nuggets.

The Portland Trail Blazers bounced back from a Game 1 loss to defeat the Denver Nuggets and even their second-round series in Game 2.

Portland pulled off the win despite a rare off night from All-Star Damian Lillard, which has to bolster the team’s confidence moving forward in the series.

The Nuggets will look for revenge in Game 3, as the series shifts to Portland. Nikola Jokic has been tremendous throughout the playoffs, but the Blazers made a concerted effort to try to limit him in Game 2, and were somewhat successful. It will be interesting to see how they play the big man tonight.

Hear the game on CBS Sports Radio The Winner 106.5FM/1240AM at 6:35pm for the pre-game show.

Henley’s softball team got revenge on the only team that has beaten them in 20 games this season.  Class 5A Crater came to the Basin and left with an 8-2 loss to the number 1 ranked 4A Hornets.  Henley resumes its south side series with Mazama with a doubleheader tomorrow at noon.

Seven Oregon Tech softball players have received All-Cascade Conference Honors including Player of the Year, four-first team honorees, two-second team honorees, one to the honorable mention team, and four-gold glove winners the conference office announced tonight at the CCC Championships Banquet.

Ali Graham, Oregon Tech

Ali Graham picked up her second Player of the Year plaudits for her incredible season for the No. 10-ranked Oregon Tech Owls. The 2018 NAIA Honorable Mention All-American slashed an incredible .420/.470/.721 on the season, ranking top-five in the conference in average (.420), slugging (.721), runs (49), RBIs (52), doubles (19), and home runs (11). The senior from Chehalis, Wash. led the CCC in hits (80) and total bases (132).
Joining Graham on the CCC All-First Team is Sarah AbramsonKiahna Brown and Dre Sotelo. Both Abramson and Brown were second team selections a year ago. Abramson led the Owls’ pitching staff with a 20-4 record and a 2.43 ERA while leading the CCC in strike outs with a total of 177 in 146 innings pitched. Brown led the CCC in runs scored, was fourth in home runs and hit .359, while Sotelo led the conference in homers (14), runs batted in (60) and walks (37). She was second in slugging percentage (.763), on base percentage (.530), and sixth in batting average (.410)

The Owls play this afternoon at 2pm in the CCC tournament in Ashland.

The NBA Players Association released a statement in support of Enes Kanter after he took to Twitter to call out both the fan comments from the Pepsi Center Wednesday evening and highlighted the fact that the NBA Turkey Twitter account refused to mention his name or contributions to Wednesday’s victory.

During the second half of Game 2, Nuggets fans were understandably frustrated with their team’s poor shooting and Kanter’s success, and began to chant, “Kanter sucks.”

But one fan pushed things too far Wednesday evening when they reportedly yelled, “Go back to Turkey, oh wait you can’t!”

After the game, Kanter took to Twitter to address the comments from the fan, calling them hurtful and reminding basketball fans that the reason he can’t go home to Turkey is because he chooses to promote freedom and human rights rather than support an oppressive Turkish government led by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
