The Trail Blazers took Denver's best shot - and the Nuggets took way too many errant shots thanks to Portland's stifling defense.
The banged-up Minnesota Timberwolves were just what the Portland Trail Blazers needed.
The Portland Trail Blazers no longer are chasing the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA's Western Conference.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The last time Nicolas Batum had a triple-double, it came because of a casually tossed buzzer-beating 3-pointer in a rout of San Antonio earlier this season. The Trail Blazers forward was embarrassed and said he never meant to disrespect the Spurs, so it didn't count.
It was the summer of 2007, and Terry Stotts had just been fired for the second time in four years.
The Portland Trail Blazers hired Terry Stotts as head coach on Tuesday, filling the NBA's last coaching vacancy.
"It was good to end the season on a positive note," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "I was proud of the young guys in the second half, the fact that they struggled through a third quarter where the offense didn't quite click and it was a close games. It was really good experience for them to play in a game, in a fourth quarter that mattered and going up against vets like Jamal Crawford and Willie Green."
"I told the guys before the game, I thought this would be a great tuneup for the playoffs," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "This wasn't a playoff game and it wasn't necessarily a playoff atmosphere, but I felt like both teams really wanted the game and you were going to see a lot of effort from both teams. It's heightened in the playoffs, but I felt this was good preparation for us."
