Trail Blazers No Match For Heat Defense

PORTLAND -- After getting a win versus the Pistons Saturday night, the Portland Trail Blazers finished up a weekend back-to-back at the Moda Center with a 107-98 loss to the Miami Heat Sunday night.

Portland is now 31-22 overall, good for sixth-place in the Western Conference with 19 games to play, and 16-11 at home this season. With the loss, they split the season series with the Heat 1-1.

At first glance, the box score from Sunday’s game would seem to indicate a closer contest than one in which the visitors held a comfortable lead for the majority of the last three quarters and led by as many as 20 points in the process.
