Leading Portland's three-point shooting barrage was Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, hitting six three-pointers each. Lillard shot 6-15 while McCollum made 6-16. 

Robert Covington added another four, making 4-7 attempts from behind the arc. It was quite the bounceback from his 1-8 shooting performance against Toronto Monday night. 

Starting small forward Derrick Jones Jr. made a three as well, finishing 1-3 from behind the arc. 

Gary Trent Jr. also made 4-5 threes from off the bench and finished with 16 points for the game. Joining Trent Jr. off the bench was Carmelo Anthony who hit both of his three-point attempts against the Kings. 

No one else for Portland attempted a three.
