NBA: Charlotte Hornets at Portland Trail Blazers Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports

Finally, an easy win for the Portland Trail Blazers. They led the Charlotte Hornets for the majority of the night, pulling away in the second half for a relaxing 115-98 victory. A complete reversal of their previews match-up a few weeks prior, the Hornets were no match for the Blazers, who almost-effortlessly pushed back each of their surges. Early in the fourth quarter, Portland pulled ahead by 22 points, and both teams allowed their bench units to close out the game.

The Blazers were led by Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and a big night off the bench from Allen Crabbe.
