The Portland Trail Blazers dropped their preseason opener against the Sacramento Kings on Monday night, but wins and losses at this time of year are meaningless. 

What matters more is what transpired on the court: the aesthetic beauty of Portland's offense, how fluid and seamless its passing was and how aggressive the entire team looked each and every time down the floor.

Take two minutes out of your day to check out these highlights. They're worth it:

Most of the young guys played well. Moe Harkless was a stud, scoring 14 points on just six shots in 24 minutes of action. Noah Vonleh grabbed 11 rebounds (nine on the offensive glass!) to go along with 12 points. 

It was a promising effort, even if the Trail Blazers blew a huge lead and lost by four in overtime.
