Top three quotes of the night after loss to Timberwolves
Damian Lillard looking ahead after going 1-3 on this road trip
“Playing the way that we’ve played the last few games is not going to get it done, or at least at the level we’ve played at is not going to get it done.”
In the loss on Sunday, Lillard scored a team-high 21 points, but also committed six of the Blazers 17 turnovers.
CJ McCollum assesses what happened at the Target Center
“I picked up my third foul in 33 seconds so, I wasn’t out there to help the team… We didn’t execute as well as we would’ve liked on both ends of the floor.”
McCollum played a season-low 26 minutes after getting into early foul trouble and with the blowout nature of the game.
Pat Connaughton on dropping three games in a row on this trip
“Over the first half of the season, we’ve done a pretty good job of winning on the road and getting better on the road… We’ve got to put this road trip behind us and go one game at a time.”
Connaughton was a big help off the bench on Sunday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting, while going 4-of-8 from deep.
