It’s gotta be the shoes. Nick Young made his first 8 shots vs the Blazers and finished with a game high 40 points off the bench. The Lakers still lost 112-124 but Nick and his “Wheat” Nike Air Zoom Generation generated a few impressive highlights.
“I didn’t know I made my first eight shots,” Young said. “I just got into a zone. I got into a rhythm kind of fast.”
Also in the zone was Damian Lillard who scored a team high 34 points and connected on 5 of 10 3-pointers. Lillard became the first Blazer to ever make 200 3-pointers in a season.
