The loss to the Hornets really stung the Blazers as Chris Paul hit the game winning shot with 4 seconds left. The Blazers played well without the injured Brandon Roy but they let the game slip away. “This is tough,” Blazers coach Nate McMillan said. “This is tough to lose a game like this, especially on your floor.” The Blazers led 96-88 with just over three minutes left but scored only one more point the rest of the way. Portland is 2-3 in its last five games, including last-second losses to New Orleans and Boston. All of the Blazers’ defeats have been by five points or less. “These guys have battled all season long,” McMillan said. “And we’re going to be in games like this. It’s going to be like this for, I think, the rest of the season.”
