Portland Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard is finally an All-Star. He was voted in as a reserve after a few seasons of being snubbed now. He’s been vocal about not being voted in in years passed and this season its a new controversy.
Russell Westbrook made general comments about his disappointment that Paul George wasn’t voted onto the team and Lillard took it personally. He thinks Westbrook took a shot at him when he said that players are always complaining about being snubbed in the past. Nothing Westbrook said made it apparent he was targeting Lillard in particular, though.
Portland is coming off a win against the leaders in its division: the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Blazers closed to within four games of Minnesota with the win. Lillard had 31 and CJ McCollum had 28 in the win.
There just isn’t anything to get me excited about the Trail Blazers. They seem to have the same team season after season and it isn’t getting any further than the first round of the Western Conference Playoffs. It won’t be any different this season, if even that far this time around.
Dallas lost a competitive game against the Rockets on Wednesday night. Dallas won the second and fourth quarters but Houston won the first and third by wide margins. Chris Paul wasn’t very good for the Rockets but James Harden had 25 points and 13 assists and Trevor Ariza backed him with 23.
In other news, Dennis Smith Jr. was named to the Rising Stars Competition as a member of the US Team. That’s a game comprised of rookies and sophomores that features a team of Americans agaisnt a team of international players.
Smith starts but Yogi Ferrell plays just as many minutes, if not more, most nights. The former undrafted point guard out of Indiana is actually named Kevin Duane. He and Smith form a quality point guard combination going forward and can even play a little bit together in the backcourt, though that combo lacks shooting prowess.
