The Portland Trail Blazers didn’t look like a team who had played a triple-overtime game the night before.
The Blazers played a three-hour-seven-minute contest in San Antonio, got on a plane, came into the Smoothie King Center, and trounced the New Orleans Pelicans, 114-88.
Pelicans players missed layups. They missed jump shots. They missed slam dunks. They missed free throws. They gave Portland every fast break, slow break, medium break…
The Pelicans just looked broke.
