Trail Blazers’ Nassir Little provides needed spark in win at New Orleans: ‘We needed Nas’ energy’

+

The Portland Trail Blazers were losing bodies at an alarming rate prior to Thursday night’s 106-95 win at New Orleans. Damian Lillard, Jusuf Nurkic, Shaedon Sharpe and Keon Johnson. Out. Out. Out. Out. The fallout was that coach Chauncey Billups had just one veteran bench player to lean on. Nassir Little. He didn’t let the Blazers down. Especially in the second half. "We needed Nas’ energy, we needed his shot-making, his athleticism," Billups said. "And he just seemed really at ease out there tonight." Jerami Grant scored 27 points. Anfernee Simons had 23. But it was Little’s season-high 15 points off the bench on 6-of-11 shooting that made the performances of Grant and Simons hold up. "I think I’m a good player so I think when I get on the court, I’m just going to try to do what I can," Little said. "Take open shots, be aggressive and live with the results." Little did little offensively in the first half and the Blazers trailed 57-51 at halftime. Then Little scored five points in the third and eight in the fourth. Each basket seemingly came at the perfect time. Little did a little bit of everything. He hit a three-pointer for the seventh consecutive game and is now shooting 46.4% from that distance. But mostly, he got to the basket for layups and dunks while routinely finding holes in the Pelicans’ defense.

Northwest Division: Utah Sinking Big Time

+

The Utah Jazz have been one of the most consistent franchises in the NBA, but they are now in full rebuilding mode after some playoff flops. That means there will be a new team at the top of the Northwest Division, where the Jazz have been at the end of the last two seasons. Denver is the most obvious team to fill the void but Minnesota is making a play for the top too. Oklahoma City is still lost in the wilderness with all of its young players and draft capital. Top pick Chet Holmgren is out for the season and top player Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable for the opener. There does not appear to be much on-court drama expected in the Northwest Division this season. Let's see where the best values are.
