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.

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).

The Portland Trail Blazers continue its three-game road trip with a stop in Indiana on Friday night to take on the Pacers.  Portland is coming off a 124-76, opening night win over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. The 48-point victory was the largest margin of victory on any opening night in NBA history.

The big story of the opening night was Pat Connaughton and his career-night of 24 points on 9-for-14 shooting all coming off the bench for the Blazers. Damian Lillard was the one to lead the charge, though, with 27 points, five assists and five rebounds.

Friday night against the Pacers will mark the first game of the season for CJ McCollum after McCollum was suspended for opening night for stepping foot on the court during an October 11th preseason game when Blazer rookie Caleb Swanigan got in an altercation with Suns big man Alex Len.

Looking at the injury report for Portland, rookie Zach Collins (gastroenteritis) is listed as probable after missing the season opener on Wednesday night and forward Noah Vonleh (right shoulder) is still out for Friday’s game.

As for the Pacers, Indiana beat the Brooklyn Nets, 140-131, on Wednesday night.  Friday’s contest will be the second game for the new look Pacers (minus Paul George).  This is an obvious rebuilding time for Indiana, as the Pacers returned just five players from last season. 

In Wednesday’s win over the Nets, Myles Turner scored 21 points and pulled down 14 rebounds.  And, in their debuts as Indiana Pacers, Victor Oladipo had 22 points, five rebounds, four assists and Domantas Sabonis added16 points and had seven rebounds.

Last season Portland and Indiana split the season series with each team winning on its home courts.

Our Dan Sheldon, Dwight Jaynes, and Orlando Williams will help set the stage for the Blazers and Pacers contest with Rip City Live on NBC Sports Northwest starting at 3:00pm.

One last tune-up for Blazers as Portland hosts Maccabi Haifa

The Portland Trail Blazers (4-1) wrapped up its three game exhibition road trip with a 113-104 win over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.

Meyers Leonard finished with 17 points and eight rebounds, while Damian Lillard added 14 points and Evan Turner finished with 12 points, six assists and four rebounds as Portland got its third straight preseason victory.

Blazers rookie Caleb Swanigan got tangled up with Alex Len in the 4th quarter of the Blazers win over the Suns and was ejected from the game.  Swanigan had one point and six rebounds before being ejected.

Coach Terry Stotts told the media after the victory on Wednesday that he plans to rest many of his rotation players or give them very limited minutes when the Trail Blazers host Maccabi Haifa on Friday night.

Friday night’s contest is the Blazers final preseason game of the year.  It’s expected that the young players and the players deep down on the Blazers’ bench will get a lot of run on against the professional Israeli team.  

Maccabi Haifa is set to conclude a four-game trip of their U.S. tour when Haifa takes on Portland.  Haifa is still looking for its first ever win against an NBA team. The Israeli club is now 0-15 all-time against NBA opponents.  There most recent loss came on Wednesday night after losing to the Indiana Pacers, 108-89.

The Trail Blazers have listed Noah Vonleh (right shoulder) and C.J. Wilcox (right knee) as out for Friday’s game. Shabazz Napier (left hamstring) has been upgraded to questionable.

Nurkic ruled out vs. Suns after suffering a concussion at Sacramento

The Portland Trail Blazers (3-1) continue its preseason slate with another exhibition game against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday.  The Blazers and Suns first squared off in game number one of the preseason back on October 3rd.  The Suns took that game, 114-112 as Phoenix came from behind in that one. 

Since then, the Blazers have won three straight exhibition games.  Portland’s most recent victory came on Monday night when the Blazers beat the Kings, 97-83 at the Golden 1 Center.

Blazers head coach Terry Stotts had his starters play nearly typical starting minutes as if it was a regular season game in Monday’s contest in Sacramento.  In the win, Damian Lilard scored14 points, dished out three assists and had three rebounds, while CJ McCollum added 12 points. Jusuf Nurkic led the team in scoring with 16 points and he also added seven rebounds.

The Trail Blazers announced on Tuesday night that center Jusuf Nurkic suffered a concussion in Monday's exhibition game at Sacramento and Nurkic will not play on Wednesday night in Phoenix.  According to Blazers beat reporter Casey Holdahl, Nurkic most likely could have played at Phoenix on Wednesday night, but because it is just a preseason game the Blazers have decided there was no reason to rush the concussion protocol.

Rookie Zach Collins will get the start in place of Nurkic.   

Shabazz Napier (right shoulder), Noah Vonleh (right shoulder) and C.J. Wilcox (right knee) are also OUT for Wednesday’s game.

The Portland Trail Blazers have had a full week of training camp and now Portland tips-off its preseason slate, when the Blazers host the Phoenix Suns at 7:00pm at Moda Center on Tuesday night.

A big storyline heading into the preseason is that Blazers head coach Terry Stotts has a lot of options at both the three and the four spots.

Evan Turner, Moe Harkless and Al-Farouq Aminu all competing for the starting small forward job, while Aminu, Ed Davis, Meyers Leonard, Noah Vonleh, along with rookies Caleb Swanigan and Zach Collins are all in the mix for the starting power forward postion.

As for Phoenix, this will be Suns' first exhibition game of the year, as well.  This season a lot of eyes will be on Suns shooting guard Devin Booker.  Last season Booker averaged 22.1 points per game.  As Booker enters his third season in the league, Suns head coach Earl Watson told reporters that he believes Booker has a high ceiling and could be, “an MVP candidate.”

Let the #BeatLA chants begin: Blazers vs. Lakers in SL Championship game

Let the #BeatLA chants begin: Blazers vs. Lakers in SL Championship game

Update: Lonzo Ball will not play for the Lakers in tonight's Summer League Championship game.

The Portland Trail Blazers (5-2) started Las Vegas Summer League tournament play as a number 16 seed and now the Blazers find themselves in the Summer League Championship game.  On Sunday, Portland beat Memphis 87-82 to advance to the championship game of the summer league tournament.

Memphis led by as much as 19 points in the first half of the semifinals game before the Blazers clawed back into the game. Portland ended the first half on an 11-2 run and cleaned up the turnovers in the second half.

It was another double-double night for Blazers’ rookie big man Caleb Swanigan.  Swanigan recorded his fourth double-double of summer league, finishing with 15 points and pulling down 11 rebounds.

Former Oregon Duck Dillon Brooks scored a team-high 16 points off the bench for Memphis (5-1) in the losing effort.

In the second semifinal matchup of the day on Sunday, the Lakers (5-2) and Mavericks (5-1) squared off.

LA ended up beating Dallas 108-98 despite losing rookie Lonzo Ball for the majority of the second half against the Mavs with calf tightness.

Ball told the media on Sunday that he would receive treatment Monday before figuring out if he can play in the championship game.

Before Ball suffered the injury early in the second half, he had recorded a double-double with 16 points and 10 assists.

Once, the Blazers knew who they would face in the championship game, the Trail Blazers twitter account tweeted out #BeatLA.  Maybe the rivalry can get back on track with this Summer League showdown. 

The Las Vegas Summer League Championship game will be played at 7:00pm on ESPN on Monday night.

We will get you ready for the Trail Blazers and Lakers championship matchup on Monday with The Scoop Pregame show streaming live on your mobile phone, tablet, or computer at 6:45pm at Facebook.com/CSNNW.  Plus, you can catch a special edition of Talkin' Ball as soon as the championship game ends.
