Quote of the Day
“Look, it's disappointing losing any game. We’re 0-3 at home and on a 4-game losing streak – they’re all disappointing, but obviously Dame was exceptional tonight. He carried us to at least put us in a position to win the game. It is disappointing but like I’ve said, Dame’s a special player. He shoulders a lot of responsibility for us.” -- Blazers head coach Terry Stotts on frustrating loss and Lillard's record night.
