2015-2016 Portland Trail Blazers Midseason Review – Who’s Stepped Up And Who Hasn’t

The Portland Trail Blazers have surpassed the numerical half-way mark of the 2015-16 NBA season, and they’ve done so with a better record, and a more talented and polished roster, than many people would have thought going into the season. But, I suppose, that’s why they play the games (in the immortal words of Chris Berman). The All-Star break is considered to be the half-way...

It’s Time For The Portland Trail Blazers To Commit To Terry Stotts

Don’t look now, but the Portland Trail Blazers are one half game out of eighth place in the Western Conference. The team in front of the Blazers is the Utah Jazz, and so, as we head towards the NBA All-Star break, it looks entirely possibly that Portland will be in a playoff race all spring. That wasn’t supposed to happen. Not at all. Not by a long shot. The Blazers’ rebuilding...

Damian Lillard has Portland thinking playoffs

Last season was odd for the Portland Trail Blazers. They went 51-31 and made the playoffs, but lost in the first round to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Trail Blazers could not capture the magic they had in the 2014 playoffs, when they won their first postseason series since the year 2000. In the 2015 playoffs, they struggled against the slow, grind-it-out pace of the Grizzlies. Then...
