Tempers flare at today’s Blazer practice

The Portland Trail Blazers’ practice Thursday at the team’s workout facility in Tualatin, Ore., came to a screeching halt after an hour.

At 11 a.m., a heated, expletive-filled exchange occurred between Blazers coach Nate McMillan and guard Andre Miller. The tirade lasted until 11:25 a.m.

Miller was not on the court when the media was allowed into practice.

Miller loudly disagreed with McMillan, at one point stating, “I ain’t going to take this (stuff).”

McMillan later fired back: “You don’t play the way we want to play.”
