Portland Trail Blazers In Control Of The Northwest Division

Nicolas Batum Out With Crabbes

After getting down as much as 23 points, I was going to pose the question - is Nicolas Batum the glue for the Blazers? But then the Charlotte Hornets looked like the Kelly Tripucka Charlotte Hornets, hiked up their shorts, and got run out of Portland in the second half.  This is Damian Lillard's show!  29/4/7/2/0 hitting 5 treys and 12 of 21 shots for The Omen.

Batum did what!? The Portland Trail Blazers created a culture of well-mannered community members following the Jail Blazers era in the early-2000s, and as a result, the team has lacked that certain edge that it takes to compete with the best of the best year in and year out.
