JAN. 22, 1988: Drexler goes off on Nuggets


Clyde Drexler wows the Denver Nuggets with 39 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists in a 126-106 Trail Blazers win at Memorial Coliseum.DREXLER

Drexler had just lost out to Denver's Fat Lever in fan voting for the West starting five in the upcoming NBA All-Star Game.

Lever, a former Blazer, scores just 12 points, going 6 of 18 from the field, in the head-to-head match-up.

Drexler denies that he was trying to make a statement, noting that Lever is a friend of his and deserved to make the All-Star team last season as well.
