The Blazers bounced back in Boston. Jusuf Nurkic led his teammates, following Damian Lillard’s path into the leadership.

What was the real meaning of the win over the Celtics? Chauncey Billups and Anfernee Simons have the answer.

Darius Garland told me yesterday that @Stephen Curry has reached out to him a lot this year & told him to just keep believing & working on his craft everyday…

(A lot of other players have encouraged him too, like Donovan Mitchell, LeBron, KD, Dame).

Pretty cool.
