The Portland Trailblazers lost in the first round to the Los Angeles Lakers because they were simply outmatched￼.
Los Angeles Lakers win 4-1
Carmelo Anthony had to show everyone in the league once again that he is still capable of going for 30 if given the green light and right usage￼.
Melo was scoring on Lebron & Davis in transition and in mid wing isolation. From mid range he is one of the truest snipers of all time. He maybe be much slower but his jump shoot is even more refine. At 36 I can see Melo balling for at least 4 – 5 more seasons he will be a top 3 scorer of all time if he is allowed to play. Portland resign this man. ￼👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

That boy 00 ended the season the same way he did those 12 months away from the game: fighting We'll obviously get way more into it over the next few days, weeks and months but this season is going to be one we remember forever MAD respect to @carmeloanthony who stayed ready for over 365 days, got an opportunity and had to re-prove himself even though he's a 10x All-Star, scoring champion, top 15 scorer of all time…do we have to keep going? Also, MAD respect to the @trailblazers for taking a chance on our guy, embracing him, letting Melo be Melo and ultimately putting him in a position to succeed It's kind of hard to really reflect on everything about the season when LeBron's flops are still fresh in our minds but last MAD respect goes to you reading this for making this journey of a season that much more fun The future looks bright for the 6'8" forward from Syracuse #STAYME7O
PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS – 122
LOS ANGELES LAKERS – 131
