Article Summary:

One night after being blown out in their own building against the worst team in the NBA, The Portland Trail Blazers upset the Los Angeles Lakers Wednesday evening in a rowdy 107-105 scrap-fest at the Moda Center.

Simons ended up with 15 points in the quarter and the Blazers only trailed by a bucket at 78-76 after three.

Fourth Quarter

Back-to-back zero hesitation threes from Keljin Blevins to begin the final frame regained the lead for Portland and brought the conflicted Moda Center crowd to its feet, which might be my favorite sentence I have ever written for Blazer’s Edge.

The energy was contagious, and everybody was getting involved. James almost completely took over the offense for L.A. and briefly helped the Lakers retake the lead midway through the quarter, but Simons answered loudly, knocking down back-to-back triples with 1:44 remaining which gave the Blazers a 105-100 lead that would prove to be insurmountable.
