Watch: Portland Trail Blazers' Forward Nic Batum Plays One-on-One With His Dog

Publish date:

The Portland Trail Blazers were eliminated from playoff contention earlier this month, but that hasn't stopped small forward Nic Batum from working on his game. His opponent? None other than man's best friend.

Batum posted a video of him and his dog engaging in a one-on-one battle in his backyard. Though the dog has an impressive defensive stance, his strength appears to be his rebounding tenacity.
