Blazers Use Balanced Attack to Scorch Spurs

One night after winning their most pivotal game of 2020-21 on Friday, the Portland Trail Blazers quickly refocused, putting forth an all-around performance to defeat the San Antonio Spurs in 124-102 fashion. The Blazers were anchored by standout games from Damian Lillard (30 points) and CJ McCollum (27), but were provided an excellent fallback from Norman Powell (18) and Jusuf Nurkic (17).

The Blazers (39-29) aren’t just winning; over their last seven wins, Portland has blitzed teams by an average of 19.1 points per contest, a more-than-welcome development heading into postseason play. They still trail the Mavericks (39-28) by ½ of a game in for the No.
