The Blazers are 10-6 with Damian Lillard having missed five games and left two early because of calf injuries. They are 7-2 when he starts and finishes a game. – 2:01 AM


Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Damian Lillard missed four games following his first calf injury. He is hopeful that he won’t miss as many games this time around but does anticipate missing some time.
“The only thing I know is that it wasn’t as bad as the first one.” – Damian Lillard. pic.twitter.com/BTMj8SzgQz – 1:45 AM


Sean Highkin @highkin
Damian Lillard says this calf injury isn’t as bad as the first one. Seemed to think he’ll miss a couple games on the road trip but doesn’t expect it to be an extended thing. Had an MRI tonight but no results yet. – 1:23 AM


Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Damian Lillard visibly limping after the game. He wasn’t following injuring calf against Miami. – 1:07 AM


Eric Walden @tribjazz
Hardy: Talen particularly stepped up. His defense was very good on Lillard. Set the tone, ran the team well. – 12:42 AM


Sean Highkin @highkin
Tough road trip coming up. Milwaukee, Cleveland, Brooklyn and New York. They’re 10-6 now, could easily come home at .500 especially if Dame misses time. – 12:38 AM

Josh Hart almost led the Trail Blazers to the comeback win after Dame left w/ injury. Offensive rebounds, steals, smart passing, coast-to-coasts were all witnessed. He was a machine, but Jordan Clarkson was huge in the clutch.
Utah/Portland are fun & legit. Get on board already! – 12:34 AM

If Caleb Williams has a big game in a USC win over Notre Dame next week, he will be the first Trojan since Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush in 2005 to travel to New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony. pic.twitter.com/BhtQSFrMsw – 12:06 AM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
HALFTIME: Jazz 58, Blazers 51. Utah outscores Portland 38-28 in 2Q. Markkanen and Beasley have 15p each for the Jazz. Dame is one of three Blazers with 10 points, though the bulk of his have come on an 8-9 FT performance; he’s 1-9 FGs, 0-8 on 3s. – 11:11 PM


Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi
Carson Palmer wasn’t considered a favorite to win the Heisman Trophy until the last two games of the season when No. 7 USC beat a Top 25 UCLA team at the Rose Bowl and a Top 25 Notre Dame team at the Coliseum to make USC a Top 5 team. Could the same be true for Caleb Williams? – 11:07 PM


Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Damian Lillard is 1 of 8 from the field and 0 of 7 on threes. Late 2nd. – 11:04 PM


Eric Walden @tribjazz
Vando collides violently with Dame trying to get a steal. He’s down on the court holding his right elbow. – 10:59 PM


Sean Highkin @highkin
Nothing is falling for Dame tonight. – 10:57 PM


Mark Montieth @MarkMontieth
IU, Purdue and Notre Dame basketball teams are undefeated and their football teams won today. Pacers have won 4 straight. Colts won last game and have new life with new coach. Not often the planets align like this. – 9:59 PM

We’re 10-6 with a tough schedule. We’ve played some good teams.” -via Twitter @highkin / November 20, 2022
