Forward Jerami Grant (9) hits a shot for the the Blazers against Detroit on Monday, Jan. 2.

After scoring 34 points in the first half, the Portland Trail Blazers (21-24) couldn't quite get back into the game against the visiting Philadelphia 76ers (29-16) on Thursday night in the Moda Center.

To say the Blazers started out cold on offense would be understatement. Most of the first half was a race between whether they would have more made field goals or turnovers.
