Three days after being throttled in Memphis, the Portland Trail Blazers regroup and attempt to put on a better performance in Game 2 of the 2015 Playoffs Wednesday night.
The Memphis Grizzlies were led by legendary Blazer-killer Beno Udrih, who finished with 20 points and 7 rebounds. Memphis spread the scoring around, with four other players scoring in double figures.
The Blazers saw their usual great night from All-Star Starter LaMarcus Aldridge, scoring 32 along with 14 rebounds. But they need more from their guard positions, as Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum combined to shoot 6-29 from the field.
While dealing with the season-ending injury to starting shooting guard Wesley Matthews, the Blazers hope to get one player back for Game 2: late-season acquisition Arron Afflalo, who has missed two weeks with a shoulder strain. He was updated from doubtful to questionable on Tuesday.
After tonight, both teams travel to Portland, where the series picks up Saturday evening.
