NBA Playoff Picture: A huge win for Portland and more trouble for Boston (Ball Don’t Lie)

Damian Lillard and the Blazers came from behind for a huge win. If the Blazers go on to clinch the West’s final playoff spot, this win and its fourth–quarter comeback could end up as one of the biggest reasons why. Portland struggled mightily to contain Karl-Anthony Towns (24 points and 16 rebounds) and Andrew Wiggins (36 points) over the first three quarters and trailed by as many as 15 in the third and by seven heading into the fourth.

Lance Stephenson expects a Michael Jordan-like reception in his 1st Pacers home game (Ball Don’t Lie)

It’s a bad time to be associated with the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers made news this week when they signed Lance Stephenson, former standout and LeBron James pest during the team’s best years during the early part of this decade, to a three-year deal worth $12 million. Stephenson has failed to stick with six teams since leaving Indianapolis for the Charlotte Hornets in free agency in 2014 and played just six games apiece for the New Orleans Pelicans and Minnesota Timberwolves this season, but the 26-year-old could still contribute as a playmaker off the bench.
