Before the season started few experts picked the Blazers to make the playoffs. The Blazers proved them all wrong and ended up with the third best record in the Western Conference.
Once they made the playoffs, no one gave them a chance to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder. They silenced the doubters and beat OKC in five games.
In the semifinals, no one thought they could beat the No.2 Denver Nuggets. All Portland did was take them to seven games and knock them out of the playoffs on Denver's home court.
Then, in the Western Conference Finals for the first time in 19 years, no one gave them a chance to defeat the defending champs. Well, this time they were finally right. The Blazers magical ride came to end, but oh what an incredible ride it was!
Following the final buzzer of the season, fans took to social media show their love for their favorite team.

That was an amazing season #RipCity— Red Panda (@Kamolibear) May 21, 2019
Well, i'm sorry it is over but I can't be disappointed. The Blazers fought their way all the way to the Western Conference Finals. That's remarkable, especially compared to expectations, adjusted, adjusted, and adjusted again. Can't wait until next year! #RipCity— Team Mom (@tcbbiggs) May 21, 2019
With that being said: I am EXTREMELY proud of my boys. We came out & went further than everyone predicted. If we getting swept by anyone I prefer it be the team headed to its 5th straight finals. Retool this offseason & lets get ready for another deep run @trailblazers #RipCity— CJ (@ABrickHowse) May 21, 2019
Not the way I saw this series going, but heck, that wasn't the way anyone saw that season going and that's the best surprise I could have asked for. Thank you @trailblazers for an incredible season that won't be forgotten anytime soon. Forever, #RipCIty— Robbie Oakman (@RobertOakman20) May 21, 2019
