Call Of The Game: L-Train Coming Through
The voice of the Trail Blazers, Brian Wheeler, delivers the Call of the Game.
After scoring a career-high 46 points in Game 1, LaMarcus Aldridge backed up that spectacular performance with one just as impressive. Portland's three-time All-Star poured in a game-high 43 points, on 18-28 shooting, to become the first Trail Blazer to record multiple 40-point games in the postseason. And no bucket was more emphatic than the one which came at the 4:58 mark of the fourth quarter. With the Trail Blazers leading by seven, Wesley Matthews drove to the middle of the floor and tossed up a pass to a streaking Aldridge that was slammed with home with authority over Omer Asik. The Trail Blazers would go on to win Game 2, 112-105, and will take a 2-0 series lead.
