Trevor Ariza claimed that the Portland Trail Blazers are trying to build momentum in the last 15 games of the regular season. Namely, Ariza helped his team defeat the Suns, snapping Portland’s 2-game skid.

The veteran scored a season-high 22 points, on 5-8 three pointers, being the fourth Portland player with more than 20 points in that game.

After the game, Ariza also talked about his three-point shooting and the way his teammates helped him score.
