- Blazers 3 Game Winning Streak
- Hassan Whiteside Breaks Block Record
- Damian Lillard Is Back
- Melo Wins Western Conference Player Of The Week
Blazers Had Momentum Facing the Clippers
Melo Had, Probably, one of the best Thanksgiving a NBA player could ask for!! Makes a comeback in the NBA and wins Western Conference Player of The Week helping his new team bounce back from a rocky start. And as much everybody should be enjoying all the celebrations, flashing lights and the good feeling, the Blazers still have a lot more to do. So enjoy what was the month of November because things about to get tougher and its just starting after the clippers.
The game before the facing the Blazers, the Clippers scored 150 points. The fact that they only scored 117 is a positive by itself, kind of, Blazers still loss by 20 points. But what else was truly expected facing the Clippers. When is not Kawhi Leonard going off is Paul George and as a team they still have one of the best bench mobs in the league, if not the best bench mob. Montrezl Harrell scored 26 points and Patrick Patterson scored 19 points. If anything for the Blazers, it was just a reality check of how far they still have to go.
This game when as expected and that’s okay. This week for the Blazers is not an easy one and the faster its all over the better. The Sacramento Kings are next and then it’s the Lakers on Friday night on ESPN, in which all eyes will be on the Melo Vs LBJ matchup. The Blazers will benefit from being at home for the next 4 games and 3 of those t
Blazers sit at 8-13 and the next 4 home games are as follow:
Vs Kings (Series of 4 tied 1-1) – Bounce back game by Lillard 30+ Points
Vs Lakers (1st of 3 Games) – Melo Vs LBJ, will bring the crowd. Hassan Whiteside will be the X-factor on how he handles AD and the Lakers’ center rotation.
Vs Thunder (Series of 4, Blazers lead 2-0) – if Blazers are able to beat both Kings and Thunder they’ll move ahead of them and closer to 500 and a playoff spot.
Vs Knicks (1st of 2 Games) – The Blazers hosting the Knicks not as exciting as it will be when they play the 2nd game on 1st of the day new year (January 1st, 2020) Carmelo Anthony will make his return to the Garden. Does Melo deserve a tribute video??
The Blazers have a lot to work to do in a limited and very little room for error. The “Melo Hype” will burn out and he’ll settle into a glorify shooter for the team. The goal for the Blazers is the tread water till Lillard is 100% and starts to pick up where left off before injury last year.
