Kiki Vandeweghe rejoined the Portland Trail Blazers yesterday, after he and team officials traded jabs over the club's inability to trade him, Blazers officials said. The Blazers said the forward had vetoed a deal that would have sent him to the Indiana Pacers, but Vandeweghe countered that the team was "trying to get back at me. " The Blazers had arranged a trade in which Vandeweghe would have gone to the Pacers in exchange for a first-round draft pick that Indiana could have obtained from Atlanta in exchange for forward Herb Williams, said Bucky Buckwalter, the Blazers' vice president for basketball operations.

AFTER six games in 8 days on the East Coast, you might think the Portland Trail Blazers might be ready to run out of steam. You'd be wrong. LaMarcus Aldridge had 25 points and 13 rebounds, Luke Babbitt hit a pair of clutch three-pointers and Portland overcame an 18-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the host Charlotte Bobcats, 118-112, in overtime Monday night. The Blazers trailed by 97-79 with 5:17 left in regulation but stormed back to tie the score and sent it into overtime on Babbitt's three with 22 seconds left.

Dorell Wright is elated about his role with the Portland Trail Blazers. The 6-foot-9 forward added that he has no hard feelings that the 76ers did not attempt to re-sign him last summer. Wright averaged 9.2 points last season, his only one as a Sixer, before becoming a free agent. "You see what direction [the Sixers] were going in," Wright said before Saturday night's game against his former team at the Wells Fargo Center. "That was not in my plans at all. "So I had to go to a situation that was good, not only for me but my family.

Now, here comes the hard part of the road trip. The 76ers are feeling good about themselves after disposing of the Miami Heat and Orlando Magic in their last two games. That's understandable, considering victories have been hard to come by for the 4-23 team. But the remaining five games on the road will show just how much the Sixers have improved since the start of the season. They will open the West Coast portion of the trip against the Portland Trail Blazers at 10 p.m. Friday at the Moda Center.

BROOKLYN - You would have thought Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was from Chelsea, not Chester. As the Portland Trail Blazers contemplated their 23rd overall pick, the thinning crowd at the Barclays Center began a small, strong chant: Rondae! Rondae! Rondae! Hollis-Jefferson raised a fist in appreciative response. Seconds later, when the Blazers chose him, the arena erupted. Many of the fans were Chester schoolchildren who wrote essays. Hollis-Jefferson's representatives chose 40 winners, for whom they provided transportation to the draft and secured entrance.

Jason Thompson's tenure as the homegrown 76er lasted 22 days. The Sixers traded the Camden native, who played at Lenape High School, to the Golden State Warriors Friday for Gerald Wallace and a 2016 NBA draft consideration. The Sixers have the right to swap the lesser of the first-round picks from the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder with Golden State's first-rounder. This transaction came after the Sixers officially acquired Thompson, Nik Stauskas and Carl Landry from the Sacramento Kings on July 10. However, the franchise had stated that it planned to keep Thompson this season when he was acquired.

PORTLAND, Ore. - It will go down as just another 76ers loss. But they had no right making things so close. C.J. McCollum was fouled while scoring on a driving layup with 7.6 seconds left. The shooting guard's ensuing foul shot gave the Portland Trail Blazers a 108-105 lead. The Sixers had an opportunity. With 7.2 remaining, Jerami Grant missed the first foul shot, before intentially missing the second one. Since the second one failed to hit the rim, the Blazers were awarded the ball.

PORTLAND, Ore. - The 76ers went from starting the season with Twin Towers to possibly having No Towers for the second straight game and the fourth time this season. Sixers coach Brett Brown said he doubts if Nerlens Noel will play Saturday in the matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers at the Moda Center because of a bruised right knee. The 6-foot-11, 225-pound center missed the loss to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday. He also was held out of practice Friday at the University of Portland.

  PORTLAND, Ore. - Since the three-point line was added, long-range shooting has become a vital part of building a championship team. The Portland Trail Blazers are taking heed.

Portland made a season-high 18 three-pointers in a 114-93 victory over the Sixers at the Moda Center. The Sixers (4-24) had their two-game winning streak snapped with the loss.

'WHEN EVERYBODY goes to write their stories tonight, start with the offensive rebounding. They had 25 second-chance points. They had 18 offensive rebounds. That's a huge number. " Brett Brown is probably tired of reading that his team lost a game yet again to open the season, so the 76ers' coach had a suggestion after his team dropped No. 14 in a row, this time to the Portland Trail Blazers, 114-104. The rebounding differential was huge, as Portland had 52 overall to only 29 for the Sixers.

Winning the 1977 NBA championship was supposed to be a formality for the 76ers.  With the addition of ABA stars Julius Erving, George McGinnis and Caldwell Jones, and the infusion of draft picks Doug Collins, Darryl Dawkins, Lloyd Free and Joe Bryant, the Sixers had one of the deepest teams in the league, won 50 games and disposed of the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets in the playoffs. All they had to do was beat the upstart Portland Trail Blazers, led by the big Dead head Bill Walton, ABA refugee Maurice Lucas and a bunch of role players cleverly managed by coach Jack Ramsay.
