The Blazers proceeded to defeat the Phoenix Suns 4–1 in the Western Conference Semi-finals, and Karl Malone and John Stockton's Utah Jazz 4–2 in the Western Conference Finals, earning their second trip to the NBA Finals in three years, and a matchup with the defending champion Chicago Bulls. The Blazers' dream of winning their second NBA title, however, was stifled by the Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen-led Bulls, who defeated the Blazers 4–2 and won their second straight NBA title. Following the season, Ainge signed as a free agent with the Phoenix Suns, and Pack was traded to the Denver Nuggets.For the season, the Blazers changed their primary logo, which showed the team name next to red and black lines curling into each other, and redesigned their uniforms. The logo and uniforms both remained in use until 2002. As of 2022, this season was the last time the Trail Blazers had reached the NBA Finals.

Portland Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers (colloquially known as the Blazers) are an American professional basketball team based in Portland, Oregon. The Trail Blazers compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division. The team played its home games in the Memorial Coliseum before moving to the Moda Center in 1995 (called the Rose Garden until 2013). The franchise entered the league as an expansion team in 1970, and has enjoyed a strong following: from 1977 through 1995, the team sold out 814 consecutive home games, the longest such streak in American major professional sports at the time, and only since surpassed by the Boston Red Sox. The Trail Blazers are the only NBA team based in the Pacific Northwest, after the Vancouver Grizzlies relocated to Memphis and became the Memphis Grizzlies in 2001 and the Seattle SuperSonics relocated to Oklahoma City and became the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2008. The team has advanced to the NBA Finals three times, winning the NBA championship once in 1977. Their other NBA Finals appearances were in 1990 and 1992.

Portland Trail Blazers draft history

The Portland Trail Blazers are an American professional basketball team based in Portland, Oregon.

The Trail Blazers first participated in the NBA Draft on March 23, 1970, before their inaugural NBA season. Before each draft, an NBA draft lottery determines the first round selection order for the teams that missed the playoffs during the prior season. Teams can also trade their picks, which means that teams may have more or less than two picks in some drafts, although they must have at least one first-round pick every other year.The first pick in the Trail Blazers' history was Geoff Petrie, a guard from Princeton University.
