The second time’s the charm as the Blazers closed out the Kings Saturday night, 102-90. Check out the highlights here.

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

It was a little tougher than hoped, but the Portland Trail Blazers put away the Sacramento Kings in the second half for a 102-90 win Saturday night. 24 hours after the Blazers fell to the Kings, Portland played a far more poised game, using a third-quarter run to take control. Afterward, they fended off multiple Kings runs, keeping them figuratively at arm’s length for a relatively easy victory.

The Blazers were led by CJ McCollum (25 points), Damian Lillard (22 points, 6 assists), Shabazz Napier (11 points on 5-6 shooting), and Jusuf Nurkic (14 points, 7 rebounds). Meyers Leonard (11 points on 3-5 from three, 7 rebounds) was a difference-maker off the bench.
