I’m not sure what it is about the Blazers’ Meyers Leonard but he has a knack for getting under the skin of opponents.
Back in December, Meyers almost turned into the Hulk after a shove by Iman Shumpert. This past weekend, Patrick Beverley got pissed at Meyers, pushed him and moved him about…actually it didn’t move him at all. And on Monday, Marc Gasol got so mad he even raised his hand as if he was going to punch Meyers before realizing how stupid of a decision that would be. He then gave Meyers a pat on the back of the neck and walked away. Both were given techs by the refs.
Gasol would leave the game after just 11 minutes because of a foot injury and Portland would go on to win 112-106 behind 33 points from Damian Lillard.
