TRAIL BLAZERS WITH COMMANDING LEAD

Blazers and Thunder in Game 5 tonight.

Considering the way Game Three in the first-round series between the Trail Blazers and Thunder played out, the expectation among many was that Game Four Sunday night at Chesapeake Energy Arena would be a rowdy and contentious affair.

But Portland had already decided that would not be the case. Perhaps knowing that engaging would only feed into the frenzy or simply because they had more pressing issues to attend to, the Trail Blazers entered Game Four with a mindset that they wouldn’t let their opponent, their fans nor the officials keep them from their goal of heading back to Portland with a chance to close out the series in Game Five.

Despite being one of the youngest teams in the NBA and entering the 2019 Playoffs having been swept out of the last two postseasons, Portland, behind the leadership of Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, conducted themselves Sunday night like the veteran team that won 53 games while earning the three-seed in the West for the second straight year.

Hear tonight’s game on CBS Sports Radio The Winner, 106.5FM/1240AM from Wynne Broadcasting.
