Blazers suffer blowout loss to NBA's bottom-dweller


The Blazers sure weren't at their best against the NBA's worst on Saturday.

Philadelphia scored its biggest margin of victory of the season — its fifth win against 37 losses — with a 114-89 rout at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Jahlil Okafor had 25 points, on 12 of 16 shooting, and 10 rebounds (all on defensive end) as the 76ers dominated throughout against the Blazers (18-25), who saw their three-game winning streak end.

Philly shot 55 percent from the field (and 10 of 23 from 3-point land), had 27 assists and had four other players in double figures, including Richaun Holmes with 17 points.

The Blazers shot 39 percent, including 5 of 29 from 3-point land. Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum were 10 of 36 combined with 14 and 13 points, respectively.

Portland fell to 8-16 away from Moda Center; Philly moved to 3-16 at home.

Portland plays at Washington, 11 a.m. Monday, Jan. 18.
