IF we had any bench I believe we could easily make it to the playoffs
According to hoopsstats.com
The blazer starters rank first in ppg averaging 85.1 which is 9 points more than the lakers and 11 points more than the miami heat.
The blazer starters rank 5th in assists in front of the clippers and bulls
They rank first in steals, 8th in rebounds, and 25th in turnovers!
The blazer starters rank 2nd only to the miami heat in efficiency.
However.....The blazers have the worst bench in the league that pulls us down to the cellar of the nba teams. I realize this is a small sample size but still props to blazer starters! (and they did this without a true center!)
How can we get any production out of the bench? Trades? Free agency? Draft?
