Before the game, the Blazers announced that the two main players in the game, Lillard and McCollem, would be truncated because of load management, seemingly to strategically abandon the game. If the Blazers lose today, they will eventually rank fourth in the West and face the Jazz in the first round of the playoffs. Only when the Blazers win today and the Nuggets beat the Timberwolves will the Blazers rise to third place in the West, and their potential rivals will become the Spurs, Thunder and Clippers, which may not be what they want to see. If todays Blazers strategically abandoned the game, the Rockets would not fall to fourth place in the West today. Source of this article: Netease Sports Responsible Editor: Ouyang Shun_NS4899
