What you need to know about the Trail Blazers

The Blazers were close but no cigar on Tuesday as they fell 109-107 to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Portland’s defeat shouldn’t obscure the performances of small forward Nassir Little, who had 20 points along with eight boards, and center Jusuf Nurkic, who dropped a double-double with 20 points and 14 rebounds.

After missing 18 games with a collapsed lung, CJ McCollum has been back in the lineup for the last five games now. However, the Trail Blazers are still missing superstar point guard Damian Lillard as he continues to battle an abdominal injury. With Lillard out, McCollum becomes the primary scorer and getting secondary scoring from players like Little and Nurkic is critical.

What you need to know about the Mavericks

Meanwhile, Dallas took a serious blow against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, falling 130-92. Power forward Kristaps Porzingis wasn’t much of a difference maker for Dallas. Porzingis played for 25 minutes but put up just nine points on 4-for-15 shooting.

Porzingis is shooting a career-low 28.4 percent from the 3-point line this season and his continued struggles put a lot of pressure on Luka Doncic. However, Doncic is having his own struggles from deep, where he’s shooting just 29.9 percent. He’s still averaging 25.5 points, 8.8 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game but Dallas will need better shooting from its two biggest stars.
