This week was a tough one for the Portland Trail Blazers, as they went 1-3 and lost forward Rodney Hood for the rest of the year due to injury.
The Portland Trail Blazers endured another tough 7 days last week, as they lost three games, including two blowouts to the pair of LA powerhouses.
To make matters worse, the Blazers lost key offensive player Rodney Hood for the year, as the dynamic forward tore his Achilles in the loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
However, despite their difficulties, Portland managed to shell out some impressive highlight plays once again.
Here is last week’s top 10 plays.
No. 10: Whiteside finds Bazemore on the bounce
Hassan Whiteside has upped his playing level recently, and his passing in particular looks to be much improved.
Watch the center bounce a perfect pass into Kent Bazemore, which is finished spectacularly by the guard.
No. 9: CJ finds Simons for the tough finish inside
Anfernee Simons is usually known for his sniper-like shooting from deep, but the sophomore showed off his strength on this play.
CJ McCollum saw Simons making a move on the sideline, threw a bounce pass and let the youngster do the rest.
No. 8: Dame steal and pass seals the win
Portland’s only win of the week wasn’t without its drama, and winning plays were needed down the stretch to get over the line.
As usual, it was Damian Lillard who provided those winning plays; here the All-Star intercepts a Buddy Hield pass, and shoots a long-range pass over the defense to find a cherry-picking Kent Bazemore.
