Portland Trail Blazers:
The Trail Blazers had a fire sale this offseason, with the only starter remaining in town being point guard Damian Lillard, who is averaging 24.2 points per game on the season, tops on the team, thanks in large part to his high usage, as he ranks among the league leaders with 89.4 touches per game.
The Trail Blazers begin their current four-game road trip by coming back from a 17-point deficit in the third quarter to knock off the Minnesota Timberwolves by a score of 109-103 on Saturday.
The Bucks knocked off the New York Knicks by a score of 106-91 on Saturday, and they did it without point guards Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis. Bayless missed the game because of a knee injury, while Ennis sat with soreness in his left shoulder.
O.J. Mayo drew the start at the point and put up 17 points and five assists to go along with only one turnover in 35 minutes of play. Michael Carter-Williams came off the bench to score 20 points on 9 of 16 shooting, adding five dimes.
