Tuesday night saw a big Brotherhood Battle as New Orleans took on Portland, losing 125-124.

New Orleans has JJ Redick, Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson while Portland boasts Rodney Hood and Gary Trent, Jr.

Damian Lillard went nuts, scoring 50 and also getting 10 assists.

As for the Duke guys, Ingram scored 30 and Williamson had 28 on 11-17 from the floor. Redick sat out with a sore heel.

For Portland, Trent had 22 and Hood three.

A lot of the highlights here are naturally of Lillard’s spectacular game but there’s the standard Williamson collection: some spectacular dunks, a sharp steal, one insane bounce pass through traffic and some unstoppable spin moves.

In general, since New Orleans has given him more playmaking responsibility, the Pels have started to move the ball better which is only natural: when your best player is committed to sharing the ball, everyone else does it too.
