Blazers Drop Emotional Game to the Kings

Despite hanging in the game until the bitter end, Portland eventually loses the second half of a back-to-back, 115-107.

Don’t Worry About Lillard’s Shooting Slump

Don’t Worry About Lillard’s Shooting Slump

The Trail Blazers guard has been struggling shooting the ball of late. Is it cause for concern? Damian Lillard is having another spectacular year, averaging nearly 26 points per game to go along with six assists and nearly five rebounds. But since the turn of the New Year, he’s struggled shooting the ball - connecting at a 38 percent clip over the Blazers’ last seven games. Lillard has made up for it in other ways. His shots are down. He’s looked to get his teammates more involved, and his assists have ticked up to more than eight per game over that same stretch. It seems to have...

Recap: Blazers Lose Close One To Nuggets, 116-113

Nikola Jokic outplayed Jusuf Nurkic as the Nuggets held off the Blazers Sunday night. The Portland Trail Blazers showed up and competed but fell just short of pulling off the upset against the Denver Nuggets, falling 116-113 on the road in a thrilling back-and-forth contest. Clutch buckets from Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum in the final minute gave the Blazers a fighting chance to steal what would have been a meaningful victory against the current Western Conference leader, but a key offensive rebound by Jamal Murray in the waning seconds allowed Denver to survive. Lillard’s...

Hornets still not playing defense, lose to Trail Blazers 127-96

The Hornets refuse to play defense. They just won’t do it. Kemba Walker’s 18 and Jeremy Lamb’s 15 were the only Charlotte Hornets marks in double figures as they got run off the court by the Portland Trail Blazers. The Hornets dug themselves an early hole with poor defense on the perimeter. The Trail Blazers jumped out to a 13-3 lead in the game’s first four minutes. A James Borrego timeout only provided a brief respite, as Portland went on to score 37 points in the game’s opening period. C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard combined to outscore the Hornets 28-27 in that first...
