On a lazy sports Sunday, the Minnesota Timberwolves visited the Portland Trail Blazers and got trounced 108-97. In the middle of the fourth quarter Thomas Robinson put an exclamation point on the win.
Robinson timed his block perfectly and sailed in to swat away the dunk attempt by Corey Brewer. This led to a transition alley-oop for Will Barton. The dunk could have been better...but the block was epic.
Sunday was the "please fans...come back to the NBA" day for the league. Sports fans have been on a Sunday whirlwind over the past couple of months with the NFL playoffs leading right into the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Unless you care about cars going around in circles, Sundays are wide open until the middle of March. It looked like a party in Portland last night and Adam Silver loves seeing plays like this to re-energize the fan base.
Seriously...it looked like game 7 of the conference finals last night in Portland, instead it was a Sunday night game against the Timberwolves.
