Portland Trail Blazers: 5 goals for the 2018 offseason

Portland Trail Blazers: 5 goals for the 2018 offseason

Anthony Davis was producing his usual blend of did-you-see-that highlights; Rajon Rondo controlled the tempo and the action again; Nikola Mirotic played perhaps the most memorable game of his National Basketball Association career; and the New Orleans defense made life miserable for Portland all night, forcing a barrage of turnovers.

Head Coach Terry Stotts of the Portland Trail Blazers speaks with the media before the game against the New Orleans Pelicans in Game Three of Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs on April 19, 2018 at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The 131 points scored by the Pels is a playoff franchise record. It's hard to go wrong with any of them with the way they've been playing. The 76ers lead the series, 3-1. "Shooting the ball, posting up, ball handling-being able to take guys off the dribble.they're all parts of my game that will be a big emphasis this summer". The main problem for New Orleans is they don't have anyone to stop Kevin Durant.

"I honestly feel like our team is capable of something like that", Lillard said.

The 88 points allows them to join John Havlicek and Jo Jo White in the 1973 postseason and it beat Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen's best total together by one point. Obviously, the blowout in Game 3, we were just totally outplayed.

"That's a completely different team without DeMarcus", Warriors All-Star Draymond Green said after that game. "He just was not gonna let us lose". "I come across halfcourt and there are two guys guarding me". But his inside game was working just fine, too.

Portland needs more help in the frontcourt and depth overall, but with Evan Turner, Maurice Harkless and Meyers Leonard all under large contracts through 2019-20, there won't be many options in free agency. "We had a good regular season". He led the Trail Blazers in scoring in all four games.

On the flip side was dejected Blazers star Damian Lillard, who was held to 20 points or less in every game of the series while shooting 35.2 percent against a stifling New Orleans defense that was determined to take the ball out of his hands. "And I thought tonight, we showed a lot of fight". "But, I mean, when things are going well for you, you do stuff like that", Lillard said. In our six years previous to this year, he had only been to the playoffs once.

She and her lawyer claim that the payment was hush money to keep quiet about a one-night stand that she had with Trump in 2006. Cohen's team did not immediately respond to an email asking whether his decision related to the McClatchy report.

Lillard quickly added, however, "But as much as they've played well and we haven't, three games to zero, that doesn't mean that it's over with".

"Build your legacy. Be great", said Davis.

"The effort level raises, and I think the concentration raises".

"I didn't see it".

"It's a disappointing end for us. You've gotta give credit where it's due".

The Pelicans also accomplished the only first-round sweep of this year's playoffs.

"I think he's done a terrific job with what he's been given", he said, per Joe Freeman of The Oregonian. "They've done that and the Portland guards have not responded".
