Default Could the Blazers be a legit Threat come Playoffs?

I know that it is 9-10 games into the season, but at this moment they look quite alright without McCollum. :turkey:


Yes I know, I'm a Blazer fan making a blazer thread, sue me. :turkey:

Their defense is a problem.

Their defense and the fact that they are allergic to the paint. Team like Houston, OKC, or even the Clippers would tear them apart in the paint.

Robin Lopez has improved but let's face it he's not a starting center.

I dont see how their defense is actually that bad. Beat the Spurs.


Yes Robin isn't the best at rebounding, but Freeland isn't bad.

Just because the Celtics beat the Heat does it mean their defense is good? Every team gets lucky.

Are you saying the Blazers got lucky against the Spurs? Pretty sure it wasn't that lucky of a win.

It's one game and the Blazers were playing at home. Can the Blazers beat the Spurs in a series? I doubt it.

I guess we will see when the time comes for both to make the playoffs.

no. they need a couple of more years of experience to make some noise in the playoffs.

No, I don't think so...Seeding wouldn't be great if they make the playoffs..A lot stacked against them to be a threat

The only 2 teams i feel standing in the way of the Blazers are the Spurs and Clippers.. and then the Heat. I am not saying we will it all, hell, i am fine after what happened last night lol. A respectful and fun series against the Spurs would be a great ending to the season.
