Anfernee Simons had a great night against the Denver Nuggets as the Portland Trail Blazers improved to 4-0.
The Portland Trail Blazers are putting the entire league to notice as they are now 4-0 to start this new season following their comeback win against a good Denver Nuggets team. They won the game by 135-110, having been behind at the end of the first half.
Anfernee Simons was the star of the night as he ended up scoring 29 points, in which 22 of which came in the 3rd quarter alone, and that caught the eye of many. Even LeBron James was left impressed by Anfernee Simons, and the Lakers star tweeted about him.
Damian Lillard also continued his great start to the season after missing out on the majority of last season to recover from a groin injury. Against the Denver Nuggets, Lillard scored 31 points, and his decision to stay in Portland to build things again following the departure of CJ McCullum might have been good.
The Blazers have been the underdogs in every game of this season so far, but they still have won all these games, and are currently at the top in a stacked Western Conference. Whether or not they will be able to continue this form remains to be seen, but this has been a great start for them.
