Phoenix didn’t look nearly as invincible as they had looked the previous 2 games as Portland came ready to play. The Trailblazers also got a much needed lift from the VERY early return of superstar Brandon Roy.
Roy, who is just about a week out from knee surgery, made a surprising showing on the court and in the process gave Portland the extra lift and motivation they needed to take a tough game away from Phoenix. Although Roy didn’t have an amazing game, scoring 10 points in 26 minutes, his presence just seemed to rejuvenate the Blazers after back-to-back blowout defeats.
The Suns and Trailblazers are now tied in the highly contested series as 2 games each. The series is all set to resume on Monday, April 26th at 10:30 p.m. EST on TNT. NBA odds makers have Phoenix getting back out in front, listing the Suns as a 6 point favourite.
Look for Phoenix to come out with guns blazing for the next exciting matchup
