Former Kentucky guard Isaiah Briscoe is in a battle to steal the final roster spot with the Portland Trail Blazers, and his promising debut in black and red was one big step in that direction.
Briscoe was one of the stars of last night’s “Fan Fest” game, the Blazers’ intrasquad scrimmage to kick off the preseason. The undrafted rookie finished with 14 points on 6-of-7 shooting from the field, including two made three-pointers; plus six assists, five rebounds and two steals.

The Blazers will play their first preseason game of the fall against the Phoenix Suns tonight at 10 pm.
Archie Goodwin, another former Wildcat on the Blazers’ training camp roster, is one of the handful of players fighting with Briscoe for the fifteenth spot on the team.
