Looks like there might be a leak in the Moda Center roof because the Portland Trail Blazers made it rain in the first quarter. 

Hosting the Chicago Bulls (3-4) on Tuesday evening in Portland, Oregon, the Trail Blazers (3-3) poured in eight three-pointers in the first quarter to take a 39-21 advantage.

Those eight three-pointers are a season-high in a single quarter for Portland. 

The Trail Blazers started off this game with four made three-pointers in a row coming from Robert Covington, CJ McCollum, and two from Damian Lillard. 

Covington, McCollum, Gary Trent Jr., and Carmelo Anthony then completed the next four. 

Coming into tonight’s contest, Portland as a team is shooting 37.5%)from beyond the arc through six games played.

The most three's the Blazers have ever made in one game is 23 (down in the Orlando, Florida bubble vs. the Denver Nuggets on August 6, 2020). And for a single quarter — 9 threes is the team record for a quarter...they’ve done it four separate times.
