What we can take from PDX’s last five games

LaMarcus Aldridge Chicago Bulls

Bryant Knox breaks down what we learned about the Portland Trailblazers during their recent five-game road trip. Despite going 2-3 on the trip, we saw more good things than bad. LaMarcus Aldridge is playing like the best power forward in the NBA, as he’s more well-rounded than Blake Griffin and Kevin Love is sidelined with an injury. This team is going to fight no matter what its record is, but there’s no denying that the final month of the season is going to be tough when it comes to making the playoffs.
