Rick (Boston) I remember you comments on Portland not being a great playoff team due to no crunch time scorer. Has Roy changed your mind or do you think LA can be that guy for them? Ric Bucher I like Portland better than Denver. They still don't have a go-to guy, which is why it'll be tough for them to do more than squeak out of the first round, at best. But what they've done in spite of all the setbacks this season really is impressive. As an aside: Andre Miller never has seen the second round of the playoffs. Gets to the postseason a lot, never advances. How confident are you with us making it to the second round? I myself would think a match-up with Mavs would give us the best chance.....thoughts?
