VIDEO: Trail Blazers Meet Toni and Candace On ‘Portlandia’

The full episode of “Portlandia” starring Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen and featuring the Trail Blazers, Paul Allen and the BlazerDancers, much of which was shot at the team’s practice facility in Tualatin, airs Thursday at 10 PM on IFC. But here’s a taste of the segment with “feminist bookstore owners” Toni and Candace trying to buoy the spirits of LaMarcus Aldridge, Damian Lillard, Robin Lopez (whose hair has really grown since October), Thomas Robinson and a still broken-footed C.J. McCollum.

In the clip, Toni and Candace, all atwitter after helping the BlazerDancers take their routines to the next level, try to give the team some pointers after a tough loss and recount a romantic affair with a former NBA player.
