Dame Does It Again In Oklahoma City

“(Oklahoma City) got a lot of those energy baskets that got them back into the game,” said Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts.

Portland didn’t score in the first three minutes of the quarter, needing Lillard to make a layup at the 8:42 mark to get on the board in the fourth.

Lillard made two more threes to push the lead to seven, after which Dort would cover two free throws with 1:37 to play to end a Lillard/Trent Jr. 12-0 run.

Meanwhile, Lillard found Robert Covington open for a three, and netted one more of his own off an Anthony feed with 51.8 seconds to play to get the final deficit to double digits.

/p> All told, Portland would hold Oklahoma City to zero field goals in the final five minutes of the game while outscoring the Thunder 18-4, with Lillard putting up 12 of those points on 4-of-4 shooting from three, to come away with the win.

Next up, the Trail Blazers finish off a three-game trip with the second night of a back-to-back Wednesday versus the Pelicans in New Orleans.
