One big shot deserves another. After Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard sank an incredibly deep three pointer to tie the game at 108, Pelicans (lol) reserve Tyreke Evans countered with a nice in-and-out dribble move to free himself up for a game-winning jumper.
Evans has thrived as the Pelicans (lol) sixth man and has turned it on of late, averaging 20.2 points, 8.2 assists and 5.6 rebounds over his past five games.
The win moved the young Pelicans (lol) within one-game of a .500 record and three games out of the eighth seed in the West.
BEST OF MAXIM
Name: Meyers Leonard
Last Week’s Stats: 4.0 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 50% FG
When you think about the 2012 NBA Draft, Damian Lillard comes to mind. The Portland Trail Blazers selected the floor general to be their point guard of the future, and needless to say, the selection has worked out.
Then there’s Meyers Leonard. The 7’1″ center was chosen 11th...
A Short Week
As a special holiday present, the Portland Trail Blazers were given the gift of a short week leading up to (and following) Christmas.
Unfortunately for the team from the Northwest, the strength of schedule wasn’t as nice.
The Blazers were given a whole slew of time off between playing on Saturday, Dec. 20 and Thursday, Dec. 26. Both games were at home, so traveling...
Personally, I don’t like the term “Nutmeg” to describe a between-the-legs pass but they are pretty fun to watch.
During yesterday’s New Orleans Pelicans/Portland Trail Blazers game, Blazers star guard Damian Lillard decided to show his passing fancy.
Watch as he finds Wesley Matthews for a three-pointer with a pass that goes between-the-legs of Tyreke Evans:
The Portland Trail Blazers assigned guard CJ McCollum to the Idaho Stampede.
McCollum (6-3, 197, Lehigh University), the 10th overall pick by the Trail Blazers in the 2013 NBA Draft, has been sidelined since fracturing his left foot in training camp. He was recently cleared to return to practice.
C.J. McCollum has missed the entire season to date with a broken bone in his foot.
McCollum was the 10th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers.
McCollum is expected to make his NBA debut shortly after New Year's Day, according to a source.
At this point in the season, I don’t think that anyone is doubting that the Blazers will make the playoffs. The real question is, what seed will they acquire? At the beginning of the season, predictions were that the Blazers had greatly improved, yet only to build a 7th seed team. Now the Blazers have beat every major threat in the NBA except the reigning champions, the Miami Heat...
Terry Stotts is in his second season as the Portland Trail Blazers head coach. In his first season as head coach, the Blazers recorded a disappointing 33 wins. This season however, the team has 24 wins in 30 games. Last season’s disappointing record, however, cannot be pinned on Stotts, as the Blazers had the worst bench that had been seen in the NBA in years. This season Stotts...
LaMarcus Aldridge had 25 points and 14 rebounds and the Portland Trail Blazers rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 98-94 in a showdown of Western Conference heavyweights on Tuesday night.
