CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Wesley Matthews said he had a funny feeling on the way to the arena that his shooting slump might be coming to end.
Call it a shooter's instinct.
Matthews scored a season-high 28 points, and the Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Charlotte Hornets 105-97 on Wednesday night for their ninth consecutive victory. The fifth-year NBA veteran was 10 of 15 from the field and 6 of 9 from 3-point range as Portland (12-3) improved to 7-0 against Eastern Conference teams.
