If they were to shoot above 50%, just think how much better their record would be? They need...

Portland Trail Blazers Week Preview – 11/10

Last week, the Portland Trail Blazers played some great basketball as a team. They obliterated a disheveled Cleveland team, then did the same to a more organized Dallas Mavericks team (their most impressive victory so far this season, in my opinion).
