A win over the Trail Blazers would have put the Suns on track for an extra half of a win or so but Phoenix blew a 15-point lead in the final 7:30 of the fourth quarter and ended up losing.
Damian Lillard scored 40 and hit the game-winner with under a second left after getting a steal and laying it off the glass with his left hand.
He also had a highlight put-back slam when nobody boxed him out and he got a running start from the three-point line.
Elfrid Payton continues to play well — or at least put up numbers. Perhaps I should be careful with that. He’s got the ball in his hands a lot and the Suns score a lot. He recorded 13 points and 11 assists against Portland.
Make that nine losses in a row for the Suns and 14 losses in their last 15 games. They currently lead the tank-a-palooza.
New Orleans Pelicans
New Orleans won its first game back from the all-star break on Friday night in overtime. Anthony Davis became the first player in NBA history to post 45 points, 15 rebounds, 5 steals and 5 blocks. He had 17 rebounds, too.
Emeka Okafor has played five games since moving to New Orleans and started at center, alongside Davis, against Miami. He’s averaging 7.5 rebounds and 3 blocks in the last four games, playing about 17 minutes per game.
New Orleans has won four in a row, dating back to before the break, and has been on an offensive tear. The Pelicans have scored 138, 118, 139 and 124 in those four games and it’s because Anthony Davis is the most dominant individual in the league right now.
He is going to get serious MVP contention at the end of the season.

Free Phoenix Suns vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction: who is going to stop Anthony Davis? New Orleans wins again.
You have to have a particular motivation if you want to stop Anthony Davis and even then, it might not happen. Phoenix is simply not equipped to defend this man. If New Orleans defends once every four possessions, it should be enough to win.
