Chat with Chris Sheridan

Mike (Stockton) Is the blazers defensive versatility the key to a possible first round upset. Regardless of who you play aldridge, wallace, camby and batum form a ridiculous defensive front line. Durant and Dirk don't want to see those guys for 48 mins Chris Sheridan Agreed. And if they play Dallas, the Miller-Kidd match-up is either a wash or favors the Blazers. Methinks Portland will be a popular upset pick if we have a Mavs-Blazers postseason match-up. (Stein has Blazers at No. 8 and Dallas at No. 10 in this week's power rankings). I am noticing that there are more and more ESPN analysis folks out there giving credit to the Blazers as of late. I really think we can match-up with anyone in the first round besides the L*kers. Whether we can pull off a series win is another question. Would love to see us do it though.
