The Portland Trail Blazers garnered a segment on The Jump with Rachel Nichols on Monday afternoon. Nichols discussed the team’s recovery from last year’s playoff sweep, the threat of breaking up Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum in the backcourt, the death of Paul Allen, and the injury of Jusuf Nurkic before examining how the team is now up 3-1 against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The crew agreed that Portland both resolve and resiliency in their wins over Oklahoma City by focusing on themselves, allowing their game to do the talking.

The Blazers look to show more of that resolve when they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 5.
