Listen Live Friday at 6PM on Fox Sports Radio 620 as Portland battles Chicago at The Moda.
MILWAUKEE – It seems as though some are waiting for the other sneaker to drop when it comes to the better-than-expected start of the 2013-14 Portland Trail Blazers. And perhaps it eventually will. But it would not be Wednesday night, as the Trail Blazers defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 91-82 to extend their win streak to eight games.
“We don’t have to win every game,” said Damian Lillard, who finished with 19 points, six rebounds and three assists in 38 minutes. “Probably the second we lose a game they’ll say ‘They’re not like what everybody thought they was.’ But we’re not trying to live up to what other people say we are or what they think we are right now. We’re playing well, we’re finding a way to win games. It’s going to come a time when we might lose a game, we’ve just got to focus on the next one after that. It’s still early and we understand that but we focus on every game. We’re going to continue to do what we’ve got to do to win games.”
