Holdahl: Blazers To Win 41 Games; Finish 2nd In Northwest Division

12
Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com predicts the Portland Trail Blazers will go 41-25. ---------------------------- I'll be honest: when I went through the schedule pickings win and finished at 41, I thought it sounded a little high. So I picked again, and ended with 42 wins. Still suspicious of my own judgment, I went back and looked at last year's 48-38 record, which is a 59 percent winning percentage. My 41-25 pick is 62 percent winning percentage. I think this team is about three percentage points better than last year, so I'm sticking with my gut. ---------------------------- He places the Blazers second in the Northwest Division and in the Western Conference's No. 5 seed, where they will match up against the No. 4 seeded Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the playoffs. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
