Holdahl: Blazers G Wesley Matthews On Track For Rookie/Sophomore Game

Casey Holdahl of addresses what is probably the most-overlooked story of the season: Portland Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews is on track for the Rookie-Sophomore challenge during All-Star Weekend. ----------------------------- Among his second-year peers, Matthews is first in three-pointers made at 86, second in scoring at 16.1 points per game, second in free-throws attempted (184) and made (154), fourth in free-throw percentage (84%), fourth in steals per game at 1.26, fifth in minutes per game at 33.1 and sixth in three-point shooting percentage (38%). ... "I don't think there are too many people who wouldn't want to be a part of All-Star Weekend," said Matthews. "Outside of the championship, it's the biggest event for our sport. A huge collection of talent in one spot, and to be invited, to be a part of that talent, it's a great accomplishment." ----------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | | Twitter
