Blazers stop furious Pistons rally, hang on for win
Andre Miller had no excuses for Portland's near slip Wednesday night against the Pistons.
"We relaxed," he said simply.
Miller had 10 points and 11 assists for the Trail Blazers in their 87-81 victory over tenacious Detroit. Portland led by as many as 20 points in the second half, but the Pistons closed to 78-77 with 1:05 left.
"They could have easily laid down, but they fought and got back in the game," Miller said. "We could have easily lost that game."
