Portland Trail Blazers Week Preview – 3/3

The Portland Trail Blazers stringing together a 3-0 week is something they haven’t done in a solid month. Before beating the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder at home, and stomping the Boogie Cousins-less Kings in Sacramento, the Blazers were scuffling along as a sub-.500 pace since MLK Day.

The Western Conference is nearing the last lap of a highly entertaining season and the playoffs are suiting up to be the biggest bloodbath since, well, last year’s playoffs. Eight teams woke up this morning thinking they have a chance at a championship and none are wrong (although I’m pretty skeptical of Dallas). Barring a major injury or a colossal meltdown, these eight teams...

Arron Afflalo Could Be The Sixth Man The Portland Trail Blazers Has Long Desired

During the 2011-2012 season, the Portland Trail Blazers thought they had it with Jamal Crawford: a jolt off the bench that could greatly help a team with title aspirations. Despite his undeniable ability to score, he was too inconsistent and didn’t provide the defense the bench unit needed to satisfactorily compliment the efforts of the starting five. In the years since, despite...

Portland Trail Blazers Week Preview – 2/24

If you heard a dull thud near downtown Portland, that was the Portland Trail Blazers after the first two games post-All-Star break.
