Fans may have turned back their clock an hour, but Oklahoma City and Portland turned the clock back 10 years, reminiscent of the days when Seattle had an NBA team. A chippy contest led to multiple technical fouls, an OKC comeback, and the ejection of Carmelo Anthony. As the minutes ticked down, the two teams swapped haymakers, swishing three-pointers in a fight to the finish. The final result? One of the best Blazer victories of the season, 103-99.
Damian Lillard tossed out 10 assists in the first half. Here’s your highlight reel!
The Blazers were led by Lillard’s 36 points and 13 assists, Jusuf Nurkic’s 25 points and 8 rebounds, and CJ McCollum’s 22 points.
