The Portland Trail Blazers opted for an offense only approach for the afternoon against the Chicago Bulls and shockingly, it did not work out. The Blazers fell to the Bulls 130-116 with a back to back looming in Oklahoma City Monday.
Anfernee Simons, Norman Powell and CJ McCollum combine for 72 points and 12 made 3’s and despite that, fall dramatically short of the Bulls who shot 55 percent from the field, 40 percent from three and 90 percent from the free throw line. Throw in the velvet roped path to the rim that the Blazers put up for the Bulls for most of the evening and well, it’s easy to see where things went wrong.
