Phoenix
Portland

[PORTLAND] — The Portland Trail Blazers played host to the Phoenix Suns last night and the Blazers did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 130-117 victory. The win bumps Portland's record up to 38-38 on the season, while the loss drags Phoenix's down to 22-55. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Trail Blazers. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was C.J. McCollum leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 29 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists, 0 blocks and 1 steals in 35 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - McCollum included - and the most important part is that the Trail Blazers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining McCollum in the winning effort was Damian Lillard. Had it not been for Lillard rounding out the Blazers's attack with 31 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Trail Blazers walking away victorious was Portland's ability to limit Phoenix's offensive output. By holding the Suns to less than they usually produce the Trail Blazers made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Blazers will be a date with the Minnesota Timberwolves while the visiting Suns will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Houston Rockets.
