New, comments

After an injury scare for Lillard, the Blazers barely held off a short-handed Grizzlies squad for their second straight win.

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Despite missing a handful of players, the Memphis Grizzlies stayed close to the Portland Trail Blazers all night. But the physical Blazers made the big plays down the stretch, and grabbed a big 100-92 victory in Memphis.

Portland played through the second half with a visibly limited Damian Lillard, who injured his right ankle late in the second quarter.

The Blazers were led by CJ McCollum, Shabazz Napier and Lillard.
