Billups highlights the Blazers’ undefeated start: “We’re in a very good place”

Portland Trail Blazers is shown as the team with the best start in the season of the NBA after having won all four games he played. It is true, he is not the only undefeated, since milwaukee bucks It is the remaining one that does not present defeats in its mark (2-0), although it played half in relation to those of Oregon.

The recent 135-110 win over the Denver Nuggets of Nikola Jockic as a local, at the Moda Center, ratified the good present that the franchise is experiencing, which recovered Damian Lillard after the injury that afflicted him last season and that, as a major consequence, saw him marginalized from the playoffs (13th in his Conference with a record of 27-55).

The figure of the Blazers gave a new example of his power with the 31 points scored (10 of 16 in field goals) against those of Colorado, but he also enjoys the uncovering of Anfernee Simons, who has just scored 29, with 11 of 17 on the court and 7 of 12 in triples.

The young shooting guard accompanies the number 0 point guard, while Jerami Grant and the Bosnian Jusuf Nurkic (recorded 13 plus 12 rebounds) are the other pieces that feed the cast led by Chauncey Billups, who has had his first experience since June of last year as head coach after having been an assistant to the Clippers.

“You can always see when a unit is really connected. Fighting for each other, fighting for each other. I feel that the most connected teams are more successful. Right now we are in a very good place”, valued the born in Denver according to statements quoted by Sean Highkin of the Rose Garden Report.

On the other hand, the strategist who on Sunday enjoyed a comeback to beat the Lakers, referred to the issues to be addressed in the Portland game. “Sloppy turnovers are what I really want to cut down on. Turnovers where you’re trying to make an extra pass and they block it…” he analyzed.

The next step for the Blazers will be on Friday at home against Houston Rocketsa team that comes from scratch (1-3 mark) with its success on Monday by 114-108 against Utah Jazz.
