Portland Trail Blazers escape with 118-114 win over New York Knicks - Nov 21, 2018

McCollum
The box score will reveal a close victory against one of the NBA's worst teams. The replays will show so-so defense, shaky shot selection and a few lucky bounces at opportune times. But ask the Portland Trail Blazers about their 118-114 victory over the New York Knicks Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, and they'll tell you it was perfect. "It wasn't the prettiest win," Nik Stauskas (6'6''-SG-93, college: Michigan) said. "But it was one of those wins where we did whatever was necessarily to get it done. We weathered the storm." After sleepwalking for the better part of three quarter, the Blazers awoke just in time to avoid an embarrassing loss, riding a red-hot scoring burst from C.J. McCollum (6'4''-G-91, college: Lehigh), a timely rebound follow by Evan Turner and a few miscues by one of the NBA's worst teams to win. The Blazers (12-5) improved to 2-2 on their six-game Thanksgiving trip and remained in first place in the way-too-early Western Conference standings. McCollum scored 31 points and carried the Blazers with a crucial second-half scoring barrage and Damian Lillard (6'3''-PG-90, college: Weber St.) overcame an off shooting night to finish with 29 points, eight assists and six rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. (6'6''-G-92, college: Michigan) Jr. recorded 32 points, five rebounds and four assists and Trey Burke (6'1''-PG-92, college: Michigan) added 19 points for the Knicks (4-14), who lost for the sixth consecutive time and eighth in the last nine games. The Blazers trailed by double digits midway through the third quarter before they finally awoke from their slumber with a few big shots and timely defense. Once they crept back in the game, the Blazers' starting shooting guard took over. McCollum scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, including 10 of the Blazers' 14 points during one breathtaking run, helping the Blazers steal momentum at a critical time. He started the barrage with 22-foot jumper with 11:11 left and, after Stauskas swished a three-pointer, McCollum scored eight consecutive Blazers points, nailing back-to-back threes and a tough driving finish in the lane. By the time the burst was over, the Blazers led 104-93 -- their largest advantage of the night. It proved to be just enough cushion. "CJ got hot at the right time," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "We were kind of struggling ... and it came at a time that we really needed it." It also came after Stotts decided to stagger Lillard and McCollum's minutes -- resorting to a tactic he used the previous three seasons -- en lieu of playing them together exclusively in the make-or-break final quarter. "Just trying to be aggressive," McCollum said. "We needed some baskets, we needed some timely scoring down the stretch, so (I was) just try to be aggressive and do what I do." Even with McCollum's heroics, the Knicks kept things close. And when Hardaway hit two free throws with 33.1 seconds left, the Blazers' lead was down to 116-114 and the Knicks were in position to pull off a stunner. But on the ensuing possession, Evan Turner saved the win. With about 12 seconds left, Lillard hoisted a tough 14-foot step-back jumper and the ball bounced off the rim. Jusuf Nurkic (7'0''-C-94) barely got his hand on the rebound, batting it to his right toward the waiting arms of Turner. The Blazers' backup forward leaped, corralled the ball and laid it in, giving the Blazers a 118-114 lead and icing the win. "Huge rebound," McCollum said. "We needed that. Dame went to the Kobe (Bryant) fade, Nurkic kept the ball alive, and we were able to finish them off." Added Stotts: "Evan's tip at the end was big-time. They defended Damian well on the shot and it was a hell of a play, especially with the bodies that were down there." The Blazers faced one-time teammate Noah Vonleh (6'10''-PF-95, college: Indiana) for the first time since he was traded away last year and the 6-foot-9 forward played a prominent role in the outcome of the game. Vonleh wasted little time trying to stick it to his former teammates, scoring back-to-back buckets in the opening three minutes, nailing a hook shot in the lane over Al-Farouq Aminu (6'9''-F-90, college: Wake Forest) and then a three-pointer. By the end of the night, Vonleh had 14 points, 14 rebounds and three steals, recording his fifth double-double of the season. But he also had some critical miscues that cost the Knicks the game. Vonleh made just 4 of 8 free throws and all of his misses came in crunch time. The most crucial came with 1:03 left and the Blazers leading just 114-112. Vonleh played 2 1/2 seasons for the Blazers before they moved him at the trade deadline last year to avoid paying the luxury tax. He signed with the Knicks last summer as a free agent and entered Tuesday's game averaging 7.3 points and 7.9 rebounds in 23.2 minutes per game.

Paul George
George scores 33 to help Thunder top Clippers 110-104 - 6 hours ago
Paul George (6'9''-G/F-90, college: Fresno St.) rendered the Los Angeles Clippers' traps and double-teams useless. Oklahoma City's forward shredded the Clippers for 33 points, seven rebounds and six assists in a 110-104 victory on Saturday night. "I'm fine being trapped," George said. "That's where we're going to need our guys the most - for them to make plays out of it. Honestly, I think that's the easiest way for me to get myself going because I make those plays early. And we burn them,...   [read more]
