For the first time since early December, the Trail Blazers won a game by single-digits.
Closing out their long homestand against the Atlanta Hawks Monday night, Damian Lillard continued his torrid run of play with 42 points in Portland’s 129-125 win.
Most encouraging for the Trail Blazers, they withstood a late-game rally from Atlanta to win a tightly contested game. For the last six weeks, Portland has either won in blowout fashion or lost altogether.
Up next, Portland heads out on the road to take on the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday afternoon.
