Portland Trail Blazers (SB: 38.5, EOB: 43.3): We're loaded up on the Blazers wagon and riding for glory. The Blazers' starting five had the third best raw plus/minus figure for any lineup in the league last season according to NBA.com. They upgraded J.J. Hickson with Robin Lopez and have a significantly improved bench. They play in a division going downhill (Thunder Westbrook injury, Wolves defensive issues, Nuggets turnover, Jazz rebuilding). They are well coached, have star power, and no age or injury issues. So why are the oddsmakers plotting them at 38.5 wins? It's so low it makes me nervous, but my colleagues and I agree: the Blazers re going over.
