Biggest storylines of Game 1 as told by Twitter
Blazers beat reporter Casey Holdahl had this nugget to share with Rip City before the first game of the Blazers-Pelicans series tipped off... And, with just a one point difference on the total points in the four regular season meetings between these two teams that basically says….
'Buckle up, for this seven-game playoff series!'
Early in Game 1, both Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum got off to a slow start. At halftime, Lillard and McCollum combined for just three points. The Godfather, Dwight Jaynes wasn’t holding anything back in his tweets, per usual.
It wasn’t until the 4th quarter that McCollum started turning it around on offense. CJ’s three-pointer was a big topic of conversation on social media and with our Blazer Insider Jason Quick.
Kerry Eggers from the Portland Tribune wanted to make sure people knew that the Blazers’ second unit was helping keep Portland in the game with the Blazers star backcourt struggling from the field.
In the fourth quarter during the Blazers 17-5 run, it was apparent that the Moda Center crowd was ready to blow the roof off Moda with a comeback like that...
Imagine if the Blazers didn’t fall just short of a comeback victory??
The voice of the Blazers Brian Wheeler dropping some knowledge on Monday mornings as we all prepare for Game 2… Wheels, of course, also finding a positive stat line of Portland being 6-0 in Game 2 after dropping Game 1.
Now the question is... Will the Blazers keep that streak alive?
