Portland Trail Blazers Notes, Quotes 2008-12-10

Portland Trail Blazers Notes, Quotes 2008-12-10
--G Brandon Roy had a monster game with a season-high 30 points, nine rebounds, five assists and two blocked shots. Portland's all-star guard scored nine of his points in the fourth quarter, but none after he sank an 18-foot jumper with 2:58 to give the Blazers a 106-100 lead.

At that point, Magic coach Stan Van Gundy called timeout and told his players to double-team Roy every time he touched the ball.

"I'm sometimes not a very bright guy," Van Gundy said. "It took him to get to 30 (points) before I said, 'You know what? We really can't contain him on the pick-and-roll.' We had tried every scheme we had in the book, so we said, 'The hell with it, we're going to trap him and make somebody else make a play.'

"That's all we were going to do the last three or four possessions. The question is, why weren't we doing it four minutes before that?"

--G Martell Webster suffered a setback in his brief appearance Sunday at Toronto, his first appearance of the season after preseason foot surgery.

"The good news is that Martell is not experiencing pain at the fracture site," Portland general manager Kevin Pritchard said. "He is experiencing pain in his little toe joint."

The Blazers said Webster will be sidelined for approximately four more weeks, "but I'm not coming back until I'm completely healed this time," Webster said.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We controlled everything for 46 minutes. For -- I don't know, whatever his name -- to hit a 3-point bank shot ... after a good road trip, it's a tough way to lose it." -- Joel Przybilla, on Hedo Turkoglu's game-winning shot for Orlando on Tuesday night at the Rose Garden.
