In a town nicknamed “Beervana” the world-famous bar culture has infiltrated nearly every activity Portlanders participate in—including cycling. Pub pedaling tours have become a fun and effective way to incorporate two of our city’s most popular pastimes.

Best Finish of the Playoffs? Find Out at Greeley Avenue Bar

If you missed the Portland Trail Blazers v. the Oklahoma City Thunder game last Tuesday you may have missed one of the greatest endings in Portland Trail Blazers playoff history.

In a stunner of a game, and after already scoring 47 points, Damian Lillard made the winning shot from 37-feet at the buzzer that ended the game at 118 – 115. And, as Blazers coach Terry Stotts declared, “The legend grows.”

Lillard has a history of making these game-stealing shots. In the 2014 Western Conference playoffs he scored an inbound play with a mere 0.9 seconds left on the clock and eliminated the Houston Rockets. Tuesday night’s impressive play was even better than the one deemed “The Shot.”

Lillard’s confidence on the court was evident throughout the game. He scored 19 points in the first quarter (racking up 11 consecutive points during one stretch) and by halftime he claimed 34 points total. By the end of the game he’d racked up 50 points, seven rebounds, six assists and three steals, making 17 of 33 field goals, including 10 of 18 three-pointers.

Damian Lillard’s backcourt mate CJ McCollum assisted in the high-scoring game, with key baskets that kept the score close. His actions were essential for Lillard to take the team all the way to victory. Additionally, Seth Curry carried out an important steal that led to a reverse layup by Lillard, and Moe Harkless sank a couple of free throws that added to the score.

Current talk in the NBA is that Damian Lillard is one of the best clutch players on the court. If he continues like this, with his last minute, game stealing plays, the possibility of the Portland Trail Blazers claiming the championship title is well within our grasp.

The Final Four (April 5 – April 8)

Grab your brackets and come watch the NCAA’s Final Four with us on our twelve big screen TVs at Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill!

March Madness has been an exciting ride this year and the league’s best teams have risen to the top of the pack as we head into the playoffs. One big surprise this year is the fact that there’s only one number one seed left in the tournament—Virginia has been able to hang on longer than any of the tournament’s highest ranked competitors. But that doesn’t mean it’ll be an easy ride for them. Number five seed Auburn has clawed its way into a top position and is ready to hit the court for a great game.

Setting the Playoff Schedule

Everyone has their favorites going into the playoff season, but the outcome of Selection Sunday will tell us a lot about which teams will have the opportunity to advance, who will be the top contenders and who are the favorites to push past rivals during the next few weeks of play.

Greeley - NBA St. Patrick's Day2

Get to Know the New Selection Process

The NCAA has come up with a new tool to guide how the selections made. Their NCAA Evaluation Tool (NET) combines data based on game results, strength of schedule, game location, scoring margin, net offensive and defensive efficiency, and the quality of wins and losses. The NET system was optimized until it was as accurate as possible and will be used going forward, as strategists feel this system will make better sense when looking at team performance data and late-season games (including the NCAA tournament. Additionally, certain types of data were omitted from the model, like game date and order, to ensure fairness and give equal importance to both early and late-season games. Also, a cap of ten points was put into place on the winning margin as a stop-gap measure to prevent rankings from encouraging unsportsmanlike play, like needlessly running up the score in a game where the outcome was certain.

Greeley Avenue Bar & Grill has all the action playing on our twelve big screen TVs and this is what we’re seeing.

Trail Blazers at Wizards 1/16/17

The Portland team has been blazing a surprising trail through the regular season and are coming up to the NBA playoffs with a mixed, but good, record on the court. With point guard Damian Lillard, shooting guard C.J. McCollum, and center Joseph Nurkic making up the “Big Three” team, they’ve become a force to reckon with and fans can get behind with hope for more wins.

Greeley - Blazers

Add to that their recent acquisition of Rodney Hood from the Cleveland Caviliers and they could be positioned to chase down the 4thor even the 2ndseed to get the home court advantage going into the playoffs.
