Jaren Jackson Jr. scored 23 points, Brandon Clarke added 18 with eight rebounds off the bench, and Steven Adams went for 14 points, 13 rebounds and five assists.
Anfernee Simons led a new-look Blazers team with 31 points, while Josh Hart – one of four players and two future draft picks acquired from New Orleans in a trade for CJ McCollum, Tony Snell and Larry Nance Jr. made last week – scored 27 points on 10-of-16 shooting from the floor. Simons is 18-of-39 from beyond the arc over Portland’s three-game winning streak, which began with a 107-105 defeat of the Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 9.
Simons has set the scoring pace in all three wins, scoring 29 points against Los Angeles and 30 in a 112-103 win over New York on Saturday. Before the last three games, the Blazers failed to score 100 points in four of their previous five, and lost the last six before the Feb. 9 victory over the Lakers.
