Win Streak And A Chance To Clinch Undone in Phoenix By, Miscues, Missed Free Throw

PHOENIX -- The Trail Blazers had ample opportunities to come away with a win, and clinch a spot in the 2021 Playoffs in the process, Thursday night in Phoenix. Instead, they’ll likely have to get a win in the final game of the 2020-21 season in order to ensure their eight-straight postseason appearance.

Portland had a five-game winning streak snapped and their chances of finishing in fifth greatly diminished with a 118-117 loss to the Suns in front of a crowd of 8,359 Thursday night at Phoenix Suns Arena.

“We had it,” said Damian Lillard.
