Portland and Phoenix were tied 115-115 with just 6.4 seconds left in overtime. These are the moments that Damian Lillard and the Blazers have seemed to dominate for a couple of seasons now.
Not Wednesday. It was Eric Bledsoe and the Suns’ turn.
The Trail Blazers defended the final play well, Lillard switched onto Bledsoe off the pick, took away driving lanes, and forced a step-back three.
Nothing but net.
Give the Suns credit, but this is a tough loss for Portland.
