Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts delivered a handful of positive thoughts after Portland’s 113-105 victory over Minnesota. Stotts hit on several of the contest’s key factors, but admitted, he would prefer more outcomes like the win over the Suns from earlier in the week.
Here is a video of Stotts’ interview after the Blazers’ win over the Wolves:
- Portland’s late-game three-pointers were a welcome addition. The Blazers struggled from beyond the arc, and finished the game with a pedestrian 30.3 three-point percentage.
- No surprise, Stotts was frustrated with Portland’s turnovers. The Blazers finished the night with 20.
- Stotts touched on how Portland’s pick-and-roll offense is evolving. Opponents continue to focus on the backcourt, which creates high-quality opportunities for the big fellas in the paint.
- Most importantly, it was good for the Blazers to beat a good team in a close game.
Portland’s record now sits at 15-11. The Blazers return to action on Tuesday to face the Rockets in Houston.
