In the Portland Trail Blazers' annual Wells Fargo Fan Fest, the team entertained the fans with a scrimmage that came down to the final play.
In the end, Team White (led by CJ McCollum, Ed Davis, Noah Vonleh and Meyers Leonard) defeated Team Black (led by Damian Lillard, Mason Plumlee and Allen Crabbe) by a score 31-30. The game featured six-minute quarters.
The teams shot a combined 23/77 from the field (ouch), and 15-24 from the free throw line. They combined for 15 turnovers in 24 minutes.
Lillard won the game's MVP award, despite his Black Team blowing an inbound alley-oop with the game on the line. McCollum and Vonleh led the White Team, keeping the crowed excited throughout.
Here were a few highlights (?) from the media:
