The Trail Blazers’ victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night might have provided Portland’s fans with the most exciting two minutes of basketball of the season. After losing to Dallas the previous Friday, coach Terry Stotts and his squad were in desperate need of win, making the 114-113 outcome even sweeter for Portland.
