After a difficult game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday, the Portland Trail Blazers hope to eliminate their frustration with the Oklahoma City Thunder on the second night of back-to-back. Oklahoma City entered the Moda Center for most of their starting lineup. The Trail Blazers lack patience. The result was a decisive blowout. Portland jumped into the Thunder early, and then maintained the lead throughout the game, and finally ended the comfort of the new injury with a final score of 133-85.
Under the leadership of CJ McCollum, eight Trailblazer players (including five on the bench) reached double digits in this game. Portland shot 50% from the field, while the Thunder̵
the first season
The Trail Blazers didn’t start in their best form. Their offense showed cracks. Jusuf Nurkic is a bit slow. Norman Powell and Damian Lillard didn’t have three-pointers. However, even a few long shots are enough to push them to a completely dispersed Thunder team. Oklahoma City tried to execute their offense. In rare cases, their pass found the target and they scored easily. That rarely happens. Mistakes and play are the norm. It can be said that Portland’s defense is very good, but it can be said that the Thunder’s lack of firepower and coordination can make everything in Portland look better, which can also be said to be accurate. When the Blazers’ offense rose in the mid-term, squash began. During this period, the Thunder only hit 7 goals, while Portland only scored 13. The Trail Blazers led 35-19 after one game.
Oklahoma City started shooting at the beginning of the second period. They can barely miss, and they score just right. It provides moderate but convincing evidence that their dilemma is self-inflicted, not due to Portland’s defensive abilities. On the other end, Powell converted two layups. But a moderate inside attack is not enough to stop OKC. With free scoring, the Thunder reduced their lead from 21 to 11 before halftime. Carmelo Anthony hit a three-pointer with a three-pointer to stop OKC’s offense. This provides enough bridges to bring the Blazers back to their starting point. Although Lillard struggled to score, Powell, CJ McCollum and the company still provided enough points on the board to make up for the decline at the beginning of the quarter. The friendly three-point barrage concealed many evils. The Trail Blazers led 65-46 at halftime.
the third quater
Powell performed well again at the beginning of the third quarter, pushing Portland up by 20 points. With such a big lead, the Blazers performed easily and effortlessly. Jusuf Nurkic abstained and ran to both ends. Lillard and McCollum shoot anytime, anywhere. This increased the lead to 30 with a score of 16-1. Around 8:00, the Thunder convened an overtime period to reassess the meaning of their lives. In the next Portland game, Lillard made an easy layup, and Oklahoma State University asked for another quick timeout to strengthen their plan. After the ensuing pit stop, Powell stole the ball and replaced it with a layup. At some point, this game is no longer fair. (Hint: This may be when the lead reaches 40.) Portland led 104-59 at the end of the three-pointer.
The fourth quarter hardly changed the character of the game. The reserve team played the entire frame. Harry Giles III made a three-pointer. Anfernee Simons and CJ Elleby pushed the ball into the penalty area. Oklahoma City also scored, but Portland maintained a 40-45 lead for most of the period. As the game drew to a close, the final profit margin increased to 48.
