The 1994–95 season was the 25th season of the Portland Trail Blazers in the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1] The Blazers went 44–38, fourth in the Pacific Division and seventh in the Western Conference. It was their 13th straight trip to the postseason.

On February 14, 1995, with the Blazers out of serious contention for the championship, the team honored Clyde Drexler's request to be traded to a contender, sending him to the defending NBA champion Houston Rockets in exchange for forward Otis Thorpe. The Rockets went on to win their second straight title, and Drexler's first championship ever.

The Blazers were knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by a 3–0 margin against the Phoenix Suns.

This was the team's final season at the Memorial Coliseum.
