  • Do you still believe in this Trail Blazers team? Can Portland come back and win this series?

But while Davis seized this opportunity by finishing with a double-double in New Orleans 111-102 win, it was his teammate, Jrue Holiday, who scored 33 points and was instrumental to the Pelicans' Game 2 victory.

The way that Holiday toyed with Evan Turner and Damian Lillard was nearly disrespectful, but not because Holiday said anything. "But I also feel like, this is how it's going to be".

As a team, the Pelicans shot 53 percent from the field and 11 of 27 from the three-point line which was more than enough to get the win after the Pelicans stormed out of the gates to lead by as many as 18 points late in the first quarter.

The Pelicans developed its whole defensive scheme around crowding Lillard on the pick-and-roll.

Rajon Rondo had 16 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists for the Pelicans, who host the Blazers on Thursday as the series shifts to New Orleans. Plus - just eyeball test here - the Pelicans have completely overwhelmed the Blazers in every facet of the game in this series, except maybe rebounding where the Blazers have pounded the offensive boards on occasion.

He had 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting and he shot 35 percent from the field in the four games. After Holiday's hook shot, Harkless made a 3-pointer to give Portland a 100-99 lead.

Terry Rozier, Boston Celtics: Injuries have paved the way for Rozier to showcase his talent, most recently with a 23-point, 8-assist effort in game two against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Blazers aren't coming back from a 3-0 hole, and they don't even look capable of making it competitive.

For example, the turnover where Holiday was able to steal the ball at halfcourt - Lillard has been dribbling towards him, while Holiday sizes him up as he approaches.

Josh Richardson, Miami HEAT: A jack-of-all-trades at the small forward position, Richardson has evolved into a three-and-D player that has meshed well with the HEAT's shut-down focus.

That's the kind of play that crushes a team. Defensively, the Trail Blazers are yielding 103.0 points per game against the opposing teams.

Series tied 1-1. Game 3, 7 p.m., TNT. CJ McCollum led in points as he contributed 22, Al-Farouq Aminu finished with 21 points, and Damian Lillard added 20. The Pelicans called timeout, but E'Twaun Moore missed a runner that Nurkic rebounded.

Future of Trail Blazers in jeopardy? .

Last night, the New Orleans Pelicans we're energized and looked to deliver a strong uppercut to the Portland Trailblazers. According to Lillard, the Pelicans are giving him problems that he's never had to solve before.

Davis and Jrue Holiday each scored over 40 points in the victory. Guys really believe in him. Wade had 28 points in 26 minutes in Game 2, but at age 36, there's no guarantee he'll consistently summon that sort of performance.

The first two games of the series have been decided by a combined 11 points, but the surprise is that the Pelicans ending up taking both games on the road.
