I just cross-referenced the Blazers' opponents' schedules with ours on this road trip, and I see tough times ahead.
Blazers play 4 games in five nights, culminating in a fifth game at ..... OKC.
To compound matters, although we have two sets of back-to-back games in five nights, not a single one of those opponents will be on the second night of a back-to-back. Same with OKC on the sixth night.
The quality of opponents is fairly high too, with the Bulls and OKC at the top but tough match ups in some of the other teams as well.
As important as this trip is for dwindling playoff hopes.... I'll be surprised if they win more than one or two in the coming week. And if they don't get this first one, then they may not get any wins....
Sorry to be so bleak, but that's how it stacks up in my view....
How many wins do you foresee in the next five games?
