After arriving in Boston Monday night, a group of Portland Trail Blazers encountered a bit of a roadblock while trying to get shots up at Emerson College's Max Mutchnick Campus Center Tuesday afternoon.

After practicing at nearby Emerson College, several Trail Blazers got stuck in an elevator in the college's athletic facility for almost a half hour.

Being stuck in an elevator is right up there among biggest fears for a lot of people, and it's pretty clear that some of the Trail Blazers weren't exactly laughing over the incident. The videos appeared to be taken in Boston, where Portland will play the Celtics on Wednesday. The Blazers have had the same core, more or less, for the past few seasons, led by their star backcourt duo in Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, and a roster that's rarely seen major changes.

"This is not how you treat a former No. 1 team in the West", Turner is heard saying, jokingly, in the background.

With no service on their cell phones, players killed time listening to music and joked about preserving their chocolate bars as they went into "survival mode". Enes Kanter, the newest member of the Blazers, and Meyers Leonard documented the whole ordeal as Damian Lillard, Evan Turner, Rodney Hood, Zach Collins, and a few others found themselves in a nightmare situation.
