Kristaps Porzingis' 36-point effort was not enough for the Mavs on Tuesday, as Damian Lillard dropped 61 points and led the Blazers' to a 134-131 win.
Porzingis recorded his second-highest point total in the bubble so far, finishing 12-for-17 (7-for-9 3PT) on field goals for the 36 points. He only had six rebounds, two assists and two blocks to complement the scoring, though, and the Blazers walked away with the victory. The defensive side of the ball seems to be the Mavs' biggest sticking point, as they have no trouble scoring the ball but have come up short in some high-scoring contests in Orlando. Porzingis, for his part, has largely been his usual, productive self alongside Luka Dončić.
