Call Of The Game: Blazer Ball Movement


The voice of the Trail Blazers, Brian Wheeler, delivers the Call of the Game.

When it comes to making the extra pass, not many teams do it better than the Portland Trail Blazers and their court vision was on full display Thursday night against the Washington Wizards. In total, the Trail Blazers tallied 32 assists on 41 made field goals, including their first six of the game. But in a game full of dimes, the one distributed by Mo Williams stood above the rest. With the Trail Blazers up 14 early in the fourth quarter, Williams delivered the knockout punch. As Andre Miller and Drew Gooden attempted to trap Williams in the corner, the resourceful veteran decided there was only one way to get his pass through the defense and that was between the legs of Gooden. A pin-pointed pass from Williams to a cutting Thomas Robinson resulted in an emphatic slam and helped the Blazers cruise to a 116-103 victory over the Wizards.
