Former Cavalier Rodney Hood Hits the Key Three for Portland in Their Playoff Win Over Denver

Last season Cavs guard Rodney Hood refused to enter game four of a playoff series against the Boston Celtics with the Cavs up by 30 points.

The move by Hood didn’t sit well with fans, and while Hood apologized to the team and fans and things eventually smoothed over, it was the one thing that Hood is remembered for when it comes to his Cavs tenure.

Friday night into Saturday morning Hood made headlines nationally, coming off the bench for the Portland Trailblazers and hitting a huge three-point bucket to help Portland top Denver 140-137….in four overtimes.

In 24 minutes Hood scored 19 points hitting 2-of-3 three-point shots, none bigger than his three that put Portland up by a pair with 17.8 seconds left.

In case you forgot, the Cavs dealt Hood to Portland back on February 3rd for guards Nik Stauskas, Wade Baldwin and two future second-round picks.
