After an exciting ending on Tuesday night, New Orleans Pelicans download on Portland Trail Blazers once again at the Fashion Center. Like two of NBAof elite offensive sides, fans were not disappointed with the Trail Blazers who took home a one-point win and the 23rd win of the season.
With their usual injury problems, the Portland Trail Blazers have been in survival mode for some time. However, with CJ McCollumReturn and Jusuf Nurkic in return, their record of 23-16 gives the Trail Blazers a solid platform on which to place a top challenge.
Damian Lillard was electric this season, averaging 30.5 points and 8 assists each night. Spieger is building his case for the MVP, especially after his 50-point piece that led to Portland’s return over the New Orleans Pelicans. Coming from 95-82, leading to fourth, Lillard scored 20 points and recorded a victory for the Trail Blazers with a winning free throw.
The defeat was a bitter blow to the New Orleans Pelicans, who were blown away by the Cleveland Cavaliers and LA Clippers before the match. Stan Van Gundy’s team is still young and has a lot to learn, especially when he holds such an advantage.
That inexperience can only limit their chances for the off-season, but there is no denying the quality of the stars who have to take them there.
