In a game between the Blazers and the Magic the referee was about to call a technical foul against CJ McCollum but then Mario Hezonja stepped in and tried to prevent that from happening.

McCollum finished the game with 41 points anyway. Without Damian Lillard, who missed sixth straight game due to a groin injury, Portland defeated Orlando 130-107.
