The Portland Trail Blazers came up just short against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night, losing 109-107 in a game that came down to the final shot.

Damian Lillard is headed for abdominal surgery, will reportedly be out for 6-to-8 weeks and is very likely done for the season.

The Trail Blazers lost to the Utah Jazz, 120-105, on Wednesday night. Portland was yet again extremely shorthanded and Utah is just a really good team. That is a formula for a loss.
