Meyers Leonard just got a three-point attempt blocked by Ryan Hollins

Mike Richman

Arron Afflalo making the extra pass to Meyers Leonard at the three point line is a great testament to Leonard's evolution. Dudes trust him.

Mike Richman

Tough sequence for birthday boy Meyers Leonard. Can't score inside then commits a silly foul on a 3-point shooter.

Mike Richman

Something I don't recall seeing before: Meyers Leonard jumping rope in warmups

Mike Richman

Marc Gasol attacking Meyers Leonard leading to Leonard picking up his fourth foul at the 9:55 mark of the 3rd. Kaman in for ML.

Halftime: 38-38. It's a grind it out game. Meyers Leonard leads all with 11 points. Conley has 8 for Memphis. Batum with 7 points, 5 rebs.

Joe Freeman

Meyers Leonard: 11 pts, 4-8 shooting, 3-5 from deep. #Blazers bench: 16 pts. We're tied 38-38 with 28.6 secs left in 2nd Q.

Kerry Eggers

That's three 3's and 11 points for @Meyers Leonard, the guy the Grizzlies don't think can shoot

Erik Gundersen

Dorell Wright and Meyers Leonard are holding up their end of the bargain so far filling in for LaMarcus at PF.

Mike Richman

Erik Gundersen

End of 1: Blazers 21, Grizzlies 19. Meyers Leonard leads everyone with 8 points.

Mike Richman

Meyers Leonard 2-for-4 on wide open three-pointers. Memphis might guard him at some point, but they're clearly reluctant.

Erik Gundersen

Will teams guard Meyers Leonard 3's dot com

Kerry Eggers

Grizzlies don't respect @Meyers Leonard's 3-point shooting. They've given him 3 straight WIDE open 3's. He's hit one of them

Kevin Pelton

The Grizzlies seem exceptionally willing to concede open 3s to Meyers Leonard.

Mike Richman

Meyers Leonard picks up a quick 2nd foul. Stotts going to roll with him in the game for now.

Mike Richman

Grizzlies just ignoring Meyers Leonard on the perimeter.

Sean Highkin

Meyers Leonard is starting for LMA 🙏

Kerry Eggers

No @LaMarcus Aldridge tonight. Sore right thumb. @Meyers Leonard starts in his place at PF

Joe Freeman

Meyers Leonard will start for LaMarcus Aldridge at power forward tonight vs. the Grizzlies.

Mike Richman

Meyers Leonard listed as the starter in place of Aldridge. Leonard-ZBo matchup should be interesting.

Kerry Eggers

Over the last 20 games, @Meyers Leonard has averaged 7.3 points & 5.4 rebounds, shooting .599 from field, .463 on 3s & .933 from foul line

Mike Richman

Somewhat surprising: This is the first time Meyers Leonard has made multiple three-pointers in consecutive games.

Kevin Pelton

Robert Sacre does not seem to have gotten an updated Meyers Leonard scouting report.

Mike Richman

Teams helping/sagging off the Meyers Leonard pick and pop are just not paying attention at this point.

Erik Gundersen

Can't wait for Meyers Leonard Day RT @danecarbaugh: Announcing my candidacy for Governor of Oregon #ImpeachKitzhaber #VoteCarbaugh

Mike Tokito

This is the 19th game in a row Meyers Leonard has gotten prime-time rotation minutes for #Blazers, even with Rolo's return.

Erik Gundersen

Yeah, Boozer is not going to have a great time guarding Meyers Leonard.

Mike Richman

Lakers go zone. It doesn't work. Meyers Leonard gets a wide open floater in the middle of the lane.

Erik Gundersen

Thank god we finally will see the McDonald's Match-up between Meyers Leonard and Carlos Boozer.

Sean Meagher

For #Blazers reserves CJ McCollum and Meyers Leonard, confidence is key in contributions –  bit.ly/1uFXSje #ripcity

Trail Blazers receive much-needed, 4th-quarter spark from Meyers Leonard blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Mike Tokito

Meyers Leonard with 12 points. His season high is 13 against, yes, Houston.

Sean Highkin

I never stopped believing in Meyers Leonard

Mike Tokito

#Blazers had missed six three-pointers in a row before Meyers Leonard ended that streak.

Joe Freeman

Meyers Leonard 7, Rockets 5 so far in the 4th Q.

Erik Gundersen

Meyers Leonard explained to me he always palms the ball to pass it. Because it's more like a fastball than a change up.

Joe Freeman

Admit it: When Meyers Leonard shoots 3s now, you think they're going in.

Earl K. Sneed

Meyers Leonard with the transition dunk, and Carlisle calls timeout with the @Dallas Mavericks in a 39-34 hole and 6:05 in the half. #DALvsPOR

Mike Richman

The Blazers playing at full speed with Meyers Leonard and CJ McCollum like 2016 is already here.

Erik Gundersen

ICYMI: the Meyers Leonard 3-point experience http://t.co/fb59fMOoWb

Mike Richman

Meyers Leonard told me tonight he's a little wary of the "Meyers Legend" nickname.

Paul Coro

A Meyers Leonard fastbreak finger-roll layup? After 19 in each of the last 2 quarters, Blazers have 22 in 4th. POR 88-75 5:34 #SunsAtBlazers
