Portland Trail Blazers
Several factors played a part in the one-point win by the Blazers over the Raptors. First, they had to erase a 17-point deficit. They lost Jusuf Nurkic to a bruised quadriceps in the first half and while the Blazers backcourt came through it took a while to heat up.
The Blazers remained aggressive knowing the Raptors had played the day prior and were rewarded with a 25 to 12 free throw advantage taht helped them trim away some of the lead.

CJ McCollum hit the go-ahead shot and scored 30 in the match while Damian Lilliard added 23 points, seven rebounds, and five assists.
Carmelo Anthony and Enes Kanter were both essential in the comeback particularly with Nurkic leaving as they scored 20 and 14 respectively.
Nurkic is questionable to play on Wednesday due to that quadricep injury. Zach Collins was expected back early in the New Year but a second ankle surgery (left medial malleolus stress fracture) that will keep him out indefinitely.
The previous four games by the Sacramento Kings are a perfect microcosm of their season. In the first of those, they battled the Bulls to pull out a 128-124 victory.
Versus the Raptors, they led by 19 and then coughed up 144 points(a franchise-best mark for Toronto) who won by 21 points,
Next, they played tonight’s opponent showing no competitive fire in the back to back and failed to deliver on either end in a 99-125 loss.
Finally, they broke back into the win column with an impressive win over a rested Pacers team. The question — which of these iterations best represents who the Kings are?
One thing that is certain is the steal of the NBA 2020 draft is Tyrese Haliburton who looks head for stardom.
Haliburton plays the game like a seasoned vet and isn’t hampered by the typical rookie issues like adjusting to pace, running pick and roll sets, or being in the spotlight and having to make decisive plays or take big shots. Rather, he seems to embrace that added pressure.
In the win over the Pacers, Harrison Barnes led the way with 30 points and eight rebounds. Richaun Holmes registered a double-double of 16 points and 10 rebounds plus a career-high six blocks.
De’Aaron Fox (21), Buddy Hield (18), and Haliburton (12) were the other double-figure scorers.
DaQuan Jeffries is dealing with a grade three ankle sprain that has held him back from appearing this season with no timetable for a return.
