Struggling Trail Blazers Hold A Players-Only Meeting

Portland [1]The Portland Trail Blazers are mired in a slump.

The Blazers have lost four in a row and are 7-9 in their last 16 games, and in a tight Western Conference, that is trouble — gone is home court advantage in the first round as the hot Clippers and Rockets shot past them.

After the efficient Spurs shredded the Trail Blazers 103-90 Wednesday night Damian Lillard started a team meeting to discuss turning the slide around, reports Chris Haynes at CSNNW.com.

“It’s time for a players-meeting when we see a little slippage,” Wright said. “Every team has two or three a year. I love the fact that this was the only one this season where guys really had to step up and be vocal leaders. And the best thing about it, we got vets in here that have been through things and young guys that have been through things as well and understand when it’s time to speak up. That’s what guys did tonight.”
