Arguably the best Portland Trail Blazers team ever — when healthy — the defending NBA champions of coach Jack Ramsay win 116-94 at Cleveland to push their record to 18-3.

Bob Gross scores 27 points for Portland, which is on its way to a 50-10 start before center Bill Walton goes down with an injury.
