Blazers’ Wiki page has Jrue Holiday as team owner

jrue holiday

The New Orleans Pelicans now lead 2-0 against the Portland Trail Blazers. And Jrue Holiday played a big part in securing the lead over the higher-seeded team.

Holiday chipped in 33 points, nine assists, and three rebounds in Game 2. He shot the lights out from the field, at an impressive 58.3 percent. He also drained two 3-pointers and accumulated just one turnover.

Fans were quick to recognize Holiday’s dominance over the Blazers. So much so that some of them might have edited the Blazers’ Wikipedia Page. As observed by SB Nation, Holiday is now the owner of the Blazers franchise, according to Wikipedia:

Of course, the page will be fixed in no time. Pelicans fans were just having some fun, and they have all the reasons to do so.

They are up 2-0 against the third seed and are two games away from an upset. They just needed to win a game on the road to make the series competitive. But they ended up stealing two games on the Blazers’ home court.

Now, momentum is completely on their side. The next two games will be held in New Orleans. If all goes well, they might be able to come away with a sweep. It is unlikely but they have a fighting chance.

Especially now that Holiday seems to have figured out Damian Lillard’s tendencies on the offensive end. Holiday’s teammate in Rajon Rondo commented on his excellent defense in Game 1, as reported by Jim Eichenhofer of NBA.com:

“I don’t know many guys who can get a stop on Dame (Lillard) one-on-one at the top of the key, in an isolation,” Rajon Rondo said of that duel, with the Pelicans ahead only 93-92. “He’s definitely a great defender and we’re very fortunate to have him on our team. He wants the challenge and is one of the best at it, (defending) in iso.”
