It wasn't easy but a balanced Blazer attack, led by Wesley Matthews' game-high 26, powered Portland past Milwaukee! The Trail Blazers improve to 8-1 this season against the Eastern Conference Central Division, including a 5-0 sweep at home and now have a 20-4 record against the Eastern Conference, the best mark of any West team against the East this season.
“I’m glad I’m standing here after a win instead of a loss,” said Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts. “Give Milwaukee a lot of credit. They’ve had a long seasons, Larry (Drew) has done a great job of keeping them competing and playing hard. They played a great game and certainly don’t want to take anything away from what they did, they played hard the whole game. That being said, we didn’t come out with the urgency that we needed … We understand that we were very fortunate to win the game tonight.”
