Blazers Show Growth, Still Lose to Magic

The Portland Trail Blazers lose on the road 104-103 to the playoff bound Orlando Magic. Keep in mind, just 72 hours ago, the Blazers lost to the Miami Heat by 60 points! So a one-point defeat is music to Rip City fans’ ears. The Magic, led by Franz Wagner’s 20 points and a steady supporting cast, tried all night to put the Blazers away, but were unable to hammer the nails in the coffin.

Defense has been the calling card for the Magic all season, but there was never a time tonight where the Blazers were completely lost on offense.
