The Trailblazers and Suns begin the first of a back-to-back against each other when the teams meet in Phoenix on Friday night.
Portland comes in fresh off a win over the Pelicans as they pulled away in the 2nd quarter and never looked back.
The Suns were in a battle with the Mavericks, but after getting outscored by nearly 20 in the 3rd quarter, they dug themselves a hole too deep.
3rd year SG CJ McCollum went back to his horizon league days in the Trail Blazers win over the Pelicans.
McCollum dropped a career high 37 points as he sparked the 2nd quarter run and put the game completely away in the 4th with his 3 point shooting. Over the last two seasons, the SG was averaging 6.3 points over the last two seasons, but will see much more playing time with spots opening up on the roster for Portland.
PG Damien Lillard remains the lone starter from Portland last year still on the roster and he started the season off right where he left it. Lillard finished with 21 points and 11 assists and he’ll need a lot of nights like that as he will be the main scorer for Portland on a majority of occasions.
F Ed Davis was signed as a back up to come off the bench. Davis played the same role with Los Angeles last season and started his Portland campaign off well. Davis finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds in the win.
Portland went 3-0 last season against the Suns.
The Suns can point to just about everybody from their starters to bench players as the reason for their 111-95 loss to the Mavericks. In that horrible 3rd quarter the Suns played zero defense, continues to force shots and just simply were out hustled.
In his league debut, Devin Booker showed some signs of potential. The Suns first round pick shot 6 of 7 off the bench and finished 14 points.
However, Booker was a main culprit in the defensive breakdowns and he was highlighted for getting back doored on plenty of occasions.
C Tyson Chandler had one of his worst games in quite some time as he finished with just 3 points and 6 rebounds in the loss.
Leading the way for Phoenix was G Brandon Knight who finished with 15 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists. He’ll more than likely be the go to guy this season when the Suns are looking for points.
