Trail Blazers Offense Is Rolling

The Trail Blazers’ offense is 18th in points per game in the NBA, averaging 112. That probably has to do with Lillard playing 15 games this season. With Lillard’s return, there are now three players averaging over 20 points per game on the roster, including Anfernee Simons and Jerami Grant.

Over the last five games, with Lillard playing in four, the offense has been on full display, having at least 116 points in every game. Lillard is averaging 33.8 points, 7.3 assists, and seven 3s on 51% from behind the arc. His presence has elevated the offense to a new level and has not taken anything away from the other players on the roster.

Grant is still averaging 21.8 points per game since Lillard’s return, while Simons had a 31-point game.

When healthy, it looks like the Trail Blazers could be dangerous. While the offense is hitting its stride behind the return of Lillard, the defense has also improved, allowing the 11th fewest points per game.

Spurs Strange Turnaround

This Spurs season has not made much sense. They started 4-1, then won one of their next 17, and now have three straight wins. Overall this team does have talent. However, 11 straight losses are more reflective of what this team truly is.

Still, their last two wins over the Miami Heat and the Cavaliers have been impressive. Facing the Heat, it was a complete team win, with six players in double figures; Keldon Johnson led them with 21 points. He has continued to be the best player on the Spurs, having 21 against the Cavaliers, but this time Josh Richardson led with 24 points.

Devin Vassell and Johnson are the only players averaging over 20 points per game.

It is possible that the Spurs are not doing anything special over these two games but just taking advantage of teams looking at their record and underestimating them. However, Gregg Popovich still coaches this team, so playing them is still never an easy win, despite the record.
