The Blazers game was the opposite of the Sixers game.
3. Coast-to-Coast. Twice.
Here’s Avery Bradley streaking to the hoop for a layup. Unsatisfied with giving up a single basket, the Blazers quickly set Sasha Pavlovic free to do the same.

More fundamentals as the Blazers leave Brandon Bass wide open under the basket to slam home this offensive rebound.
0. In Which The Blazers Try To Get Nate McMillan Fired
Here, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce all benefit from Portland defense that never allows itself to work — or rotate — too hard.
