There is no reason to panic for the Portland Trailblazers (yet). Tonight, they fell to the Denver Nuggets, led by Nikola Jokic, with a final score of 126-95. Robert Covington was a bright spot in Wednesday’s game, finishing with 15 points, 3 rebounds, and a steal & a block while shooting an incredible 60% of the three-point range. Enes Kanter also filled up the stat sheet, dropping 14 points on 75% from the field.
The Blazers finished tonight’s game shooting a combined 37/98 (38%) from the field, and 9/34 (26%) from behind the three-point line. There is no reason to panic because the Blazers rarely shoot like this and it is also, just a pre-season game. There are few times where you see both, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum shoot a combined 35.7% from the field.
Portland plays Denver in their final Pre-Season game this upcoming Friday night. This game will tip-off at 6:00 pm. PT.
