The Portland Trail Blazers earned a hard-fought win on Tuesday night against the Houston Rockets. It required a team effort to beat one of the West’s top contenders. What was Portland’s reward for earning that big win? 520 lbs. worth of ice for cold tubs at 1 a.m., as captured on Instagram and posted by the NBA Bubble Life account:
Blazers big man Jusuf Nurkic is heard in the video exclaiming “Bubble life! 1 a.m. cold tubs bro”, while guard CJ McCollum is at first hesitant to dive in to his cold bath.
Portland next plays on Thursday against the Denver Nuggets.
