Tim Frazier Records First NBA Double-Double

Portland Trail Blazers point guard and fan favorite Tim Frazier has shown promise during his time in Rip City, proving that he can play with the big boys while providing solid relief for star Damian Lillard off the bench. The Nittany Lion great had a number of noteworthy performances on the West Coast, but saved his best for the regular season finale on the eve of the NBA Playoffs.

In 30 minutes of action, Frazier compiled 13 points, 10 assists, and four rebounds to record his first career NBA double-double in the Blazers’ loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Frazier turned some heads in the first half after putting up seven points, six assists, and two rebounds in only 14 minutes of play, prompting some legendary tweets from the Portland Trailblazers’ hilarious Twitter account.

Frazier has been an all-around presence all season, and posted a number of ridiculous stat sheets both in the NBA and the D-League. Frazier amassed four triple-doubles this season for the Maine Red Claws, while earning D-League Player of the Week honors prior to being signed by Portland.

The Blazers — who locked up the four seed in the Western Conference — will face the Memphis Grizzlies in the NBA Playoffs, meaning Frazier could match up against the likes of Mike Conley, Nick Calathes, and Russ Smith in some regard.

Frazier’s journey to the NBA required taking the road less traveled, but nonetheless, he’s finally achieved his goal getting to live out his dream in the professional ranks.
