At the center of Portland’s victory was Lillard. Lillard made a big success with 38 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists while playing only 29 minutes. In particular, he boasted a high-sensitivity outer cannon, in which he threw 17 three-pointers and made 11 of them.
Portland, which scored 70 points in the first half alone with Lillard at the fore, continued its momentum in the second half and seized the victory early. In the fourth quarter, Portland took the victory easily by excluding key players such as Lillard and managing players comfortably.
In addition to Lillard, Jeremy Grant (24 points), Yusuf Nurkitch, Shayden Sharp (more than 14 points), and Anfernie Simmons (12 points) contributed to the victory with double-digit scores.
Minnesota’s D’Angelo Russell (23 points, 8 assists) and Rudy Gobert (16 points, 20 rebounds) struggled, but could not prevent the team from losing.
