Trail Blazers Finish Off 2017 Saturday Night In Atlanta

Trail Blazers Finish Off 2017 Saturday Night In Atlanta

The Blazers are 2-1 without Lillard.

The Bulls have won seven straight home games for the first time since the start of 2013-14.

McCollum and Aminu, who made 5-of-6 3-pointers after halftime, carried the Blazers' offense as they rallied from a seven-point deficit.

For the third straight home game the Hawks also scored more than 30 points during the fourth quarter, tallying 32 points (to the Trail Blazers 20) en route to their 10th victory of the season.

"It was good for us to have an offensive night", Stotts said. I think that's what it comes down to.

Evan Turner has scored over 15 points in his last two games.

The Cavs also tied a franchise record for points in a quarter (46 in the first quarter) and set a National Basketball Association regular season record for threes made in a half (16 in first half) and a Quicken Loans Arena regular season record for threes in a game (21).

Budenholzer on Schroder's third quarter tally: "You just felt like the momentum shifted and he was a big part of that". "I'm not saying every game "Hit me in the nose" but I just need to play with the same energy every game like this".

The four-year veteran tied his career-high of 33 points against the Dallas Mavericks on December 23.

Though other players had stable performances off the bench (Malcolm Delaney and Isaiah Taylor combined for 9 points and a +5 BPM), the story of this night for the Hawks was the outstanding play of undrafted rookie Tyler Cavanaugh. "I feel like it made the most sense". "I thought our guys were able to turn up the effort, the execution, the togetherness on the defensive end. Basically it couldn't get any worse, so I just went out there and tried to be positive about it and look forward to the next half".

The run also consisted of three points by Prince and two by Belinelli. Prince went 4 of 7 beyond the arc and had 10 rebounds.

The Trail Blazers shot 7-of-23 from the field and 1-of-7 beyond the arc in the third quarter.

Lillard's health - Lillard was expected to return against Atlanta on Saturday but he was again an absentee from the starting lineup. However, the Grizzlies only allow 11.9 second chance points per game (11th). He led the Blazers with 25 points in a 127-110 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game that Portland was in until the final 11 minutes. Budenholzer said he was proud of how the team hung with the Trail Blazers in the first half.
