Cunningham did a great job on Aldridge defensively: 14 pts on 7/20 shooting, zero free throws, and outrebounded him as well.
Pek was a$$raping Hickson until he pulled his groin
Too bad Batum, Matthews and their bench scrubs decided to set a record in made threes
Cunningham is wildly underrated. I was a big fan of his when he was with Portland. He looks like he's put a lot of work in and seems to look like he's put a lot of weight on his frame from his days as a Blazers. Good glue guy you got there in Dante. He did a really nice job on Aldridge, this was probably his worst game on the whole road trip, but LA was clutch when it mattered.
..... a$$raping..... classy. Anyhow, yeah, Pek was dominate and pretty much manhandled the Blazers frontline. I would expect Pek to dominate Hickson though, he's got about 4 inches and 70lbs on him. No shock there.
Batum is doing what he's been doing all year. He's Mr. 3rd Quarter. Stotts offense relies a lot on the 3pt shot, so when they're hot, they can get hot quick. It was just one of those nights for Portland.
