    You didn’t necessarily have to be there live to see it; watching the game on tv counts.

    What moment pops into your head when you think of the greatest sequence of Blazers basketball.

    By sequence I mean: 2-3+ strung together plays within a 24 second window.

    IE: Basket, inbounds steal, Basket
    Lots of blocks by a player on one possession
    Insane scoring outbursts (Id say they would need to be close to Reggie status)

    It will be interesting to see what we all
    come up with. I especially look forward to input from those before my generation.

    I’ll post what came to my mind in a spoiler so that those who want to think it over themselves without any bias can do so. Shout outs to anyone who takes the time to post their responses in a spoiler as well to maintain the control aspect of this. Shout outs to the people who go through and look at all the spoilers first before submitting their response.

    Could be fun to tally up the totals!

    Posterizing block, good outlet, great alley oop, not just a dunk but a will the thrill windmill. That’s some superb stuff!

    I know this doesn't really fit the idea of 24 seconds or 2-3 plays. But Brandon in the fourth quarter is truly what immediately came to mind.

    Its hard to know, Ive dealt with Back issues since a car accident when I was 12 and I could understand if they derailed his career. Its just not something I think we can prove. That rookie year he was special though.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I feel like there was a sequence (a bit longer than is being asked for here, I guess) where the Blazers ran off like 8-10 straight points in just a few seconds around 2003/2004 or something. But I'm having trouble finding it. My lack of memory in my great old age for the details make it tough to search for.

    Ditto.
    Greatest thing in any sport I've ever seen.
    Damian is the greatest.

    Miracle minute is definitely the winner for me. I've probably watched it over 100 times.

    That block of Robinson's is something rarely seen....a volleyball spike of an almost breakaway dunk. Then the following alley-oop to Barten with the high-step-stomp was pretty good.

    A much higher quality version of the Miracle Minute.

    I can't find a video these days, but the game Darius Miles returned to Portland for the first time with the Grizzlies.........he got booed louder than I've ever heard before at any game before or since. He grabbed a rebound, snuck in and tried to dunk, but got stuffed two-handed by Outlaw. Handed it off to Sergio, who then passed it back to Outlaw for an alley-oop. It was a lot like the Thomas Robinson play, but so much sweeter.
