It was a long night at Moda Center, but the Blazers rewarded the faithful with a late run to finish off the pesky, lowly Warriors. Portland’s four-game stand against sub-.500 teams opens successfully.
Another big night from the little guys. Lillard and McCollum combined for 61 points, preventing the Warriors from ever getting over the hump and taking the lead for more than a few seconds all night.
Rebounds Galore. Whiteside had a monster night on the boards, with 23.
A scorer off the bench. Skal Labissiere scored 10 points on 3-6 shooting to help the Blazers maintain a lead with the starters resting, including a key stretch in the late third and early fourth where the starters returned to a larger lead.
The Blazers get another day off, then host the Orlando Magic Friday on ‘80s throwback night.
