The Portland Trail Blazers just couldn’t handle the Brooklyn Nets Friday night at the Moda Center. Led by former Blazers wing Allen Crabbe, the Nets led by as many as 10 in the second half before the Blazers finally went on a fourth-quarter run to restore the lead. But with 7 players scoring 8 or more points, the Nets’ balanced attack was too much for the Blazers, who walked off the court nursing a 101-97 loss.
The Blazers were led by Jusuf Nurkic, Damian Lillard, and CJ McCollum. Shabazz Napier and Evan Turner had good nights off the bench. In his return to Portland, Allen Crabbe had 12 points.
