Behind accurate shooting from LaMarcus Aldridge and a bevy of moves from Damian Lillard the Portland Trail Blazers zoomed to a massive lead over the Chicago Bulls. Three-point shooting and a career rebounding night from J.J. Hickson ensured that the offensively-challenged Bulls would not make up the difference.
After multiple games of poor play, the Portland Trail Blazers came out on fire and left the lethargic Chicago Bulls in the dust. Much like the previous game, the score is not representative of the overall game, but in a good way this time.
Chicago's defense is always tough but the Bulls are starting 2nd- and 3rd-stringers at the guard spots and lack bench relief. Can the Blazers slip past the backcourt, generate pace and points, and steal a game in Chicago to turn around this road trip?
