Blazers keep rolling, step up and beat Pacers
In one of their most impressive and rugged performances of the season, the Blazers outlasted Paul George and out-toughed the gritty Indiana Pacers, steamrolling their way to a 106-102 victory before 19,023 Monday night at the Moda Center.
The win, which came in a playoff-like atmosphere before an energized crowd, improved the Blazers’ record to 15-3, their best after 18 games since the 1998-99 season, when they also opened 15-3.
“We’re a pretty damn good team,” Wesley Matthews said, when asked what Monday night’s win showed. “And we can beat anybody.”
