Rudy's record streak is over


Last night's loss to the Houston Rockets ended the Trail Blazers' four-game winning streak and bounced the Red and Black into fifth place in the Western Conference with a difficult game against the Spurs still to come, but that wasn't the only run that was ended in the Lonestar State.

Rudy Fernandez's rookie record of consecutive games with a made three-pointer, previously held by Kirk Hinrich, came to an unceremonious end last night at 33. Fernandez had a clean look in the fourth quarter from three to keep the streak alive, but the shot rimmed out. Streak done.

The blowout loss in Boston back on Dec. 5 was the last time Rudy went 0-fer from beyond the arc. That, of course, doesn't include the Philadelphia game Rudy sat out on Jan. 14.

While I'm sad to hear Rudy's streak is over, lets remember that this was quite the accomplishment, and I'm proud of our boy Fernandez. Rough game for everyone last night, but I'm happy Rudy's part of the Blazers!
