Through 3 Quarters
Only one more quarter stands between the Portland Trail Blazers and the victory they were favored to collect going into this night. They have emerged as the frontrunner and are ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers 86-78.
The Trail Blazers have been led by point guard Damian Lillard, who so far has 26 points and five assists along with three blocks. Dame is close to surpassing his season high of 28. One thing to keep an eye out for is Robert Covington’s foul situation as he currently sits at four.
the Sixers have lost 100% of the time when they were down heading into the fourth quarter this year, so this one seems just about wrapped up
