    Pretty good considering their defense sold out on him. You got three of the best defenders traping you all series that's amazing. Rondo Holiday, and Davis were scared of him lol.

    Props to the Pelicans. Their defense worked because Blazers role players couldn't knock down open 3s. Blazers needed Collins to hit a few open 3s and they probably win game 1 and 2. That's the difference.

    Pelicans are a very good team though. They were just better in every way this series.

    Issue here Portland is the first top3 team since the switch to the 4/7 R1 format to get swept in the 1st round, which is a little less amazing.

    Blazers lost simply because their D was suspect, Lillard merely ensured it was in 4.

    That's funny . Shooting 35 percent is pretty good because the defense was tough. You've got low standards. I bet you think people from the ghetto that do no better with their lives than working at McDonald's did pretty good because they were raised in tough environments. Losers mentality.
