Damian Lillard initiated the Portland Trail Blazers' first team meeting, hash-out session after Wednesday night's loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, their fourth straight defeat.

Earl Watson, Mo Williams and Dorell Wright were among the players who addressed the team.

“I just felt like it was something that needed to be said,” Lillard said. “At some point, it’s up to the players.”

The Blazers believe there is no desperation in the locker room but know they need to figure out what is wrong nearing the stretch run of the season.
