Blazers claw out overtime win against BucksPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Oregonian reporting on the Portland Trail Blazers:
Almost nothing seems to be coming easy for the Trail Blazers these days, not even a win over the worst team in the NBA.
A win did come over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, but it took a clutch shot by Damian Lillard just to get the game to overtime, where Wesley Matthews’ heroics helped the Blazers finally put the Bucks away for a 120-115 victory before 19,572 at the Moda Center.
“We understand that we were very fortunate to win the game tonight,” Blazers coach Terry Stotts said.
The Blazers (44-24) had struggled to close out tight games against elite teams recently, and that issue surfaced again against the Bucks (13-55), who have the worst record in the NBA and had only beaten two Western Conference teams all season.
