Trail Blazers

The Trail Blazers lost their seventh game in a row on Sunday night against the San Antonio Spurs. Ben McLemore and Keon Johnson led the team with 19 points each. Portland struggled to maintain its offensive production without injured players such as Damian Lillard and Jusuf Nurkic.

The Trail Blazers finished the season with a record of 27-51, which is their first 50-loss season since 2007. Injuries have plagued the team all year, and the trade of CJ McCollum at the deadline may have started a rebuild.

 

Thunder

Olivier Sarr had a career-high 24 points for the Thunder on Sunday against the Phoenix Suns. He also had five 3-point shots.

With Tre Mann and Josh Giddey out for the season, Aleksej Pokuveski has been given the opportunity to run the team's offense. He said it took him a couple of games to get used to the new role. He's expected to be a part of the Thunder's future plans.
