Blazers Beat Wizards 108-102 Behind 34 from Ayton

The Portland Trail Blazers (21-56) matching up against the Washington Wizards (15-63) is what happens when a stoppable force meets a movable object. This time in the stalemate, the Blazers prevailed, defeating the Wizards 108-102 in Washington D.C.

Despite my teasing, Blazers center Deandre Ayton was by no means a stoppable force Friday night. Ayton went off for a season-high 34 points (one off his career-high), 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks. Then Scoot Henderson (19 points, seven assists) supplied the dagger with an old-fashioned 3-point play in the final minute.
