This is Embarrassing
The long road trip that the Portland TrailBlazers are currently on was going to be the momentum changer for the season. Everyone knew going into this trip that Portland was either going to build momentum for a strong close to the season or send them into a dangerous deep tailspin.

The Trail Blazers are coming off a rare road win, but it was against the weak Wizards’ team and things do not get any easier on this road trip, as after the Pacers they face the Knicks, Bulls, and Thunder.
