Gary Trent Jr. has returned in the season restart, being a man on a mission for the Portland Trail Blazers. The young sharpshooting wing talked to the media, after his career-high 27-point game against the Denver Nuggets.
The Blazers moved up to 0.5 games behind the 8th seed and Trent has an important role in this. The Duke “product” talked on his shooting, his ability to improve and the fact that he is not a finished product yet.
Trent scored in double-digits during Portland’s first four games in Orlando. The 38th pick of the 2018 NBA draft hit 7 threes against the Nuggets.
In the last four games in Orlando, Trent Jr. shot over 45% helping his team win 3-out-of-the last 4 seeding matchups.
