There are few things more difficult for an NBA team to accomplish than coming back from a double-digit deficient on the road in the second night of a back-to-back. But that’s exactly what the Portland Trail Blazers did Monday night in Brooklyn, coming back from an 11-points down to beat the Nets 108-98 for their seventh-straight victory.
“The one thing we all knew is, it’s a long game,” said Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts. “Percentages kind of even themselves out, we didn’t think they’d shoot that well the rest of the game. Actually we shot the ball really well in the first quarter, too. I thought it was a testament to our guys as far as how they competed. They never lost confidence, they kept competing and kept chipping away at it. When you have that belief that you can do something it makes it easier.”
