On Saturday night, the Portland Trail Blazers (2-0) will conclude its three-game road trip to start the season. Saturday’s contest is a back-to-back game for the Blazers as Portland gets its toughest test yet taking on the Milwaukee Bucks (1-1).
The Blazers are coming off a 114-97 win over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night. It was the 2017-18 season debut for CJ McCollum in Friday’s win after serving a one-game suspension in the season-opener. McCollum led the way scoring 28 points. McCollum also pulled down seven rebounds.
Damian Lillard added 18 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, while Al-Farouq Aminu finished with a double-double with 16 points and 16 rebounds. Off the bench, Evan Turner added 17 points.
Portland held the Pacers to under 100 points after Indiana had scored 140 points in its season opener vs. the Nets.
The Bucks will also be playing in the second leg of back-to-back when Milwaukee hosts Portland. The Bucks lost their home opener to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, 116-97.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 34 points, eight rebounds, eight assists and three steals in the home loss on Friday. Malcom Brogdon added 16 points. Antetokounmpo and Brogodn were the only Buck players to reach double-figures.
Through the first two games of the Bucks season, Antetokounmpo is averaging 35.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and three steals.
For Saturday’s injury reports, the Blazers will again be without Noah Vonleh (right shoulder). The Bucks are going to without Jabari Parker (left knee surgery rehabilitation).
Last season, Portland dropped both games against Milwaukee and the last time the Trail Blazers won in Milwaukee was back in November of 2013.
