ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — I once heard a story about a coach who told his team to go get some shots up from the place on the court they expected to be shooting from during a game. And one guy ran over and took a seat on the bench and began firing up shots.
Blazers guard Wesley Matthews is in no danger of that happening to him, but just to be safe he got up a shot from the bench during last night’s pregame warm-ups…and he drilled it. (By the way, Matthews absolutely had the proper reaction here: When you make an amazing shot, just run right off the court, because it’s basically impossible to top it.)
