Trail Blazers’ Wesley Matthews Did Not Appreciate How Close This Ref Got to Him

Think about how you feel when someone sits down right next to you on an empty bus. That’s pretty much how Portland Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews felt at this moment.

Late in Wednesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Matthews sat in front of the scorer’s table as he waited to check back in. As the Portland player sat there, a referee came up and popped his personal-space bubble.

Matthews responded by scooting away from the ref and giving him a look as if to say, “Really, dude?” 

Luckily, Twitter exists and allowed Matthews to let everyone know what he was thinking at the time.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Chicago Bulls: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis

An up-and-down season hasn’t left the Chicago Bulls where they’d like to be, as they’re 13-8 heading into this Friday night contest with the 17-5 Portland Trail Blazers. This may only be a single clash between the Eastern and Western Conference, but it’s an important one for both playoff-bound squads. 

After all, Pau Gasol will have his hands full with LaMarcus Aldridge, especially as the big man tries to help his team bounce back from an ugly loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. What better motivation than fighting for redemption after his 3-of-14 shooting performance while his Blazers scored a season-low 82 points against the lowly Wolves?

 
Derrick Rose is healthy and raring to go, but he’ll have his work cut out for him in a head-to-head matchup with Damian Lillard. With Rip City coming to town, the Bulls have a chance to build some positive momentum and get their home record in the United Center closer to .500.
