Portland Trail Blazers
The Blazers earned a quality win on Wednesday when they came back to defeat Orlando in Portland. Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum both did their thing with point totals in the 20s but Shabazz Napier made the difference with 19 points off the bench.
Napier made all five of his three-point attempts. He is the first player in the NBA to do so coming off the bench this season.
Napier’s timing was welcomed on a night when neither Evan Turner nor Pat Connaughton scored the ball effectively. His emergence wasn’t just limited to this game. Napier has put together a string of quality appearances off the bench.
The Blazers have five legitimate scoring threats in the backcourt.
The Blazers’ weakness will always be up front as long as they continue to devote the resources they do to the guard core. Terry Stotts has messed with starting rooking Caleb Swanigan at forward.
Swanigan is an NBA body that will rebound and defend but he limits Portland offensively. Stotts still doesn’t have the confidence in Swanigan in crunch time but it’s a good idea to try and build his confidence and see what he can give the team.
The Kings were in Atlanta on Wednesday and left historic losers.
Sacramento lost by 46 at Phillips Arena, home of the worst team in the NBA.
Kings fans are used to losing but this loss has stirred the fan base in particular. You don’t lose to the Atlanta Hawks by 46 just because you had a bad night. This team gave up, as it has on more than one occasion already this season.
There really isn’t a leader on the roster. DeMarcus Cousins isn’t even there to start shoving people around or cursing them out. It’s a team that has shown some nice flashes this season but is still a long way away from being taken seriously.
