Damian Lillard finally cooled off after a month-long outburst as he finished with just 20 points in the 137-177 loss against the Pelicans. The setback was Portland’s third straight defeat on the road to put their record at 10-19 when playing away from Oregon. Defense appeared to have abandoned them after allowing New Orleans to shoot 53.3 percent from the field, including a third quarter collapse that enabled the Pels to explode for 41 points.

Rookie sensation Ja Morant recorded his first career triple-double in Sunday’s 106-99 win against the Washington Wizards as the Grizzlies continue to put the league on notice with a 14-4 winning blast to bring them right back to over .500 (27-26) ahead of their last game before the All-Star break. While the latest victory was huge, the Grizzlies were far from satisfied with how they performed, especially with the way they shot the three-ball (5-32) and their freebies from fifteen (15-25)
