Portland Trail Blazers Review: Injuries, Confidence Low, Playoffs in Jeopardy

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

In this Videocast, Dave and Sam discuss the recent struggles of the Trail Blazers, including how both injuries and lack of confidence have negatively affected the team.

Hello Blazer's Edge readers, and welcome to another Videocast!

We've been off for the past week, but we are back talking about, well, the longest rough patch the Blazers have faced all year. The team has now dropped seven of their last 10 games, including tough losses to Charlotte, Miami and Orlando. In this episode, Dave and Sam discuss how the injury to LaMarcus Aldridge has affected the team, as well as how the overall confidence level of the team seems to have dropped.

As usual, keep sending emails to blazersub@gmail.com, especially as things get tighter at the end of the year.

Enjoy:
