Chauncey Billups Praises Blazers After ‘Really Good’ 4th Quarter vs. Magic

The Portland Trail Blazers fought hard, but ultimately fell 104-103 to the Orlando Magic on Monday night at the Kia Center.

The Blazers were trailing by 15 at one point, but clawed back thanks to strong ball movement. Coach Chauncey Billups spoke about the effort the team had in the fourth quarter.

“I thought it was a really good fourth quarter for us. I thought we finally got into the rhythm of moving the ball. That’s an elite defense. Their size really bothered us at the rim, you know. When we were just trying to get layups they just got to double pump.
