Huge win against the Warriors, a payback beat down on the Jazz and a 'had-to-have-it' win against the Suns that Dame pulls out because, .....well, Dame. The #3-#6 seeds are separated by 1 loss. The T-Wolves are at #3 by way of having the most wins at 37 which is 4 ahead of the Blazers. Portland is going to have to win a lot of games to catch them but they've given themselves a chance. MIN: 37-26...next @ Sac SAS: 35-25....next @ Cavs DEN: 33-26...next vs Hou POR: 33-26...next vs Sac OKC: 34-27....next vs Orl I would expect after the next round of games for it to look something like this: MIN: 38-26 SAS: 35-26 POR: 34-26 DEN: 33-27 OKC: 35-27 There is very little margin for error for the Blazers and they can't play like they did against the awful Suns and get away with that type of effort very often no matter how Herculean Dame is. HUGE game March 1 when the Blazers host the T-Wolves. Game on!
