The Portland Trailblazers have been one of the surprise teams in the NBA. They have had a good starting five for several years. Their big problem is the fact they had a very weak bench which forced the coaching staff to play their starters heavy minutes. With heavy minutes to starters come injuries and when a Trailblazers club with no depth last year watching starters hit the DL it resulted in a disastrous year. This year has been different because the Trailblazers have done an outstanding job addressing their needs off the bench. The team adds scoring from their bench in Moe Williams who connects nearly 37% from the three point line. Robin Lopez has been a valuable contribution. The big man gives the Trailblazers a good presence on defense to help LaMarcus Aldridge defend the rim. Last year Portland had one of the worst defensive field goal percentages in the league as opponents shot for a high percentage against them. They have improved their field goal defense to mid-pack this year. Portland is 29-9 on the year and 13-5 straight up in their 18 road games. San Antonio enters play with a mark of 31-8. In the chase for the top seed in the Western conference the Spurs hold a 1 ½ game lead over the number two seeded Portland Trailblazers.
