Officiating sucked for both teams all night long. The Blazers simply were not into the game at all. I still have a hard time understanding why. Its almost funny actually when you think about it. They have proved when they are at their best they can play with the Rockets. Against most teams they can have an off night and still beat them, but not a team that is on a 23 game unbeaten streak. I am not using not having Upshall in the lineup as an excuse. I was quite happy when I found out that he was a late scratch. As far as Ferguson, he was goaded a couple times by McCaffrey and it was nice seeing him take some penalties that he has had missed against him. Ferguson thinks he's a tough guy and messed with the wrong guy in Brown and almost McCaffrey.
