    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Jayson Tatum and Dennis Schroder scored 31 points apiece and the Boston Celtics rode a sizzling start to a 145-117 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night. Enes Freedom grabbed 15 rebounds off the bench for the Celtics, who made 14 of their first 15 shots and built a 21-point, first-half lead. Coach Ime Udoka believes Tatum’s recent success has been the product of attacking the basket. Tatum scored 37 on Friday night against Utah as well. “He’s had some success driving to the basket and getting to the free throw line,” Udoka said. “That’s been encouraging him to drive more and not settle as much. With some of their guys out, we felt we could attack some mismatches and get to the basket without a ton of rim protection and he did that very well.” CJ McCollum scored 24 points for the Trail Blazers. Portland chipped away behind its bench before Boston took a 64-58 lead into halftime. “I’ve never seen a team that needs its bench to inspire its starters,” Portland coach...

    Getty Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum handles the ball during a game against the Philadelphia 76ers. More than a quarter of the way into the 2021-22 NBA season, the Philadelphia 76ers continue to lack clarity on the Ben Simmons front. The disconnect between the franchise and the former No. 1 overall pick has grown to the point that Sixers coach Doc Rivers won’t even discuss Simmons anymore. “I literally don’t even talk about it,” Rivers said, via All 76ers’ Justin Grasso. “I coach the team and the guys that I can see every day. I let Daryl [Morey] and Elton [Brand] deal with all of the other stuff.” However, Philly is far from the only club with a situation on its hands. On the other side of the country, the Portland Trail Blazers just fired GM Neil Olshey and the team, well… let’s just say that it’s not doing anything to convince Damian Lillard that the Pacific Northwest is the place to be. One analyst believes that the two teams could help each other solve their respective...
    Getty Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard. The Portland Trail Blazers fired general manager Neil Olshey on Friday after an investigation concluded he created a toxic workplace environment. Olshey violated the “Portland Trail Blazers’ Code of Conduct,” according to a team statement. We won’t bore you with the details of what Olshey did or how the decision came to pass. It was a long time coming. And his dismissal was expected. However, Olshey’s ouster could affect the Philadelphia 76ers when it comes to their dogged pursuit of Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard. Remember him? The six-time All-Star who received a hero’s welcome when he visited the Wells Fargo Center back on November 2. Lillard is “the guy” everyone wants in return for Ben Simmons, including Sixers president Daryl Morey. Will Portland seek to trade him and start a rebuild under a new front office? That remains to be seen. Dame Lillard on the “We Want Lillard” chants in Philly.

    Portland Trail Blazers fans are over the moon about former general manager Neil Olshey getting fired. While an inevitable rebuild is coming to the Pacific Northwest, Portland Trail Blazers fans rejoiced over Twitter about former general manager Neil Olshey being relieved from his post. Olshey had been the main man in the Portland front office for a decade. While the Trail Blazers were a common fixture in the Western Conference Playoffs, the team largely underachieved, despite having Damian Lillard as their All-NBA point guard. An investigation into the toxic work environment Olshey created ultimately led to the organization terminating him on Friday. Though parting ways with Olshey likely means the beginning of a long-scale rebuilding process, Trail Blazers fans were ecstatic to see their team’s former general manager get the boot.Portland Trail Blazers fans react to Neil Olshey’s firing on TwitterFor a former general manager’s termination to illicit this type of a reaction from the fanbase online, it certainly speaks volumes over how they felt about the team’s direction of late. god is so good!!! https://t.co/ppIfOCaDYM — haley oshaughnessy (@HaleyOSomething)...

    The Portland Trail Blazers have parted ways with long-time general manager Neil Olshey. After a decade on the job, the Portland Trail Blazers will have to look for a new general manager, as the organization has fired Neil Olshey for violating the team’s code of conduct.

    KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Bobby Wood directed Justin Meram’s crossing pass low into the right corner in the 90th minute to give Real Salt Lake a 2-1 victory over Sporting Kansas City on Sunday in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference semifinals.

    Sitting on the bench long after the crowd had cleared out of Chase Center, his head draped in a towel, Klay Thompson battled his emotions. His return from two devastating injuries and a 2 1/2-year layoff could happen next month. He has recently been cleared for five-on-five play. But it still doesn’t erase the pain of the past 30 months. That was clear as Thompson sat on the bench 20 minutes after the final horn Friday night, a picture that stood in stark contrast to another Warriors victory, their 17th in 19 games this season. “Two-plus years is a long time,” Stephen Curry said.  “Going into this particular season and him getting closer to getting back on the floor kind of predicted that this would be the hardest part of his journey. We’re talking weeks instead of months now. Super proud of his approach.” Coach Steve Kerr sympathizes with Thompson, who will turn 32 in February. “I try to put myself in his shoes,” Kerr said. “The good news is he’s nearing the finish line,...
    Stephen Curry took a few minutes after another spectacular performance to return to the court and cheer up emotional teammate Klay Thompson when his Splash Brother needed some moral support. The Golden State Warriors are counting the days until the star shooter can get back out there with them to chase another championship — though it's clear how much Thompson is missing this winning start as he moves closer to playing again at last. Curry had 32 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points and the Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers 118-103 on Friday night for their sixth straight victory. Afterward, Thompson remained on the bench for more than 20 minutes — acknowledging earlier in the week after resuming full-court scrimmaging that this has been a taxing rehab grind after back-to-back serious injuries. First was surgery for a torn ACL in his left knee suffered in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals, then a right Achilles tendon tear that needed repair last year before the preseason even started.

McDermott Convocation Center, San Antonio; Saturday, 3 p.m. EST BOTTOM LINE: Portland goes up against Southeast Missouri in a non-conference matchup. Each team last played this past Friday. Southeast Missouri beat Incarnate Word by three points on the road, while Portland is coming off of a 69-66 loss to Montana State. TEAM LEADERSHIP: Portland’s Moses Wood has averaged 15.7 points and 7.3 rebounds while Tyler Robertson has put up 13.2 points and five rebounds. For the Redhawks, Eric Reed Jr. has averaged 16.4 points while Chris Harris has put up 11.8 points. KEY FACILITATOR: Robertson has either made or assisted on 41 percent of all Portland field goals over the last three games. The junior guard has accounted for 17 field goals and 14 assists in those games. UNDEFEATED WHEN: Portland is a perfect 5-0 when the team records at least seven offensive rebounds.

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Warriors suited up only 10 players but got significant contributions from all of them as they beat the Trail Blazers to secure their best start to a season since their record-setting 2015-16 campaign. At 17-2, after a 118-103 win Friday night against Portland — their sixth in a row and 10th straight by double digits at Chase Center — the Warriors have also matched their record from the first 19 games of their first title-winning team of 2014-15. Steph Curry played the starring role with 32 points, eight assists and seven rebounds as Golden State maintained its title as the top team in the NBA, setting up a home-and-home with the team on its heels, the Phoenix Suns, who rattled off their 15th straight win Friday.

    Keegan Murray scored 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds to spark Iowa to an 85-51 victory over Portland State on Friday night.

    A year and a half after protesters took to the streets to demand reform, after a white officer murdered George Floyd, the city of Portland is adding even more money to its police budget. Night after night, hundreds of people marched the streets of Oregon's largest city, demanding racial justice after the murder of George Floyd by a white officer. Among the rallying cries were "defund the police" — a call for elected officials to reallocate some law enforcement funding elsewhere. In June 2020, the Portland City Council and the mayor answered by cutting millions from the police budget. Now, a year and a half later, officials partially restored the cut funds. On Wednesday, the Portland City Council unanimously passed a fall budget bump that included increasing the current $230 million police budget by an additional $5.2 million. The added police spending is occurring amid a year of a record number of homicides, the city's greatest police staffing shortage in decades and reform recommendations made by the U.S. Department of Justice....
    Larrys Mabiala scored in the 90th minute and the Portland Timbers beat the Colorado Rapids 1-0 on Thursday to advance to the Western Conference final. Portland will face the winner of the game Sunday between Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake. Yimmi Chara's corner kick was deflected high into the air and Cristhian Paredes headed it into the 6-yard box for Mabiala to knock home. Mabiala hadn't scored all season before connecting in consecutive playoff games. Portland star playmaker Sebastian Blanco left early in the second half with an apparent leg injury. As he tried to run to a forward pass, Blanco went to the ground, grabbed the back of his taped left leg and immediately signaled for a substitution. Portland will be without Dairon Asprilla for the conference final after he received a straight red card for violent conduct in second-half stoppage time.

    Five people have been arrested and charged with rioting in Queens, and one in Portland, Oregon, amid national unrest over the jury verdict finding Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty. On Friday night, a group of 40 to 50 'anarchists' tore through the quiet residential neighborhood of Middle Village, damaging property and ripping down American flags, officials said. The middle-class neighborhood in Queens is known as conservative-leaning and sympathetic to the police, making it a ripe target for the ultra-leftist mob venting fury over the Rittenhouse acquittal.

    Kyle Rittenhouse is a free man after he was acquitted of murder in Kenosha on Friday, but the next legal battle could involve his former lawyers who are now demanding to be repaid their portion of the $2 million in bond money. Rittenhouse, 18, was acquitted by jurors on all charges - two counts of homicide, one count of attempted homicide for wounding a third man, and two counts of recklessly endangering safety - after killing two people during protests marred by arson, rioting and looting on August 25, 2020, in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Two attorneys who helped raise the bond money to get Rittenhouse released from jail after his arrest last year now want their cash back, but the 18-year-old Antioch, Illinois resident’s family is refusing. John Pierce of the Los Angeles-based law firm Pierce Bainbridge represented Rittenhouse at the time that his firm wrote a $2 million check springing him from jail in late November 2020. Pierce was brought on to the Rittenhouse legal team by famed Atlanta defamation lawyer Lin Wood. Kyle Rittenhouse is a free man after...
