A writer investigates the Portland Trail Blazers' position in a crowded Western Conference playoff chase.

USA TODAY Sports

Tom Ziller of SB Nation assesses the Portland Trail Blazers' slim playoff hopes in a crowded Western Conference field.

Portland is 26-30, one game behind the Lakers for No. 9 and all even in the loss column. But good gravy, look at this schedule!

A full 20 of 26 remaining games come against teams in the playoff bracket or the Lakers. Heavens to Batum that's ugly. My rough figuring has Portland going 11-15 the rest of the way for a 37-45 record. Sorry, Blazers.

I touched on Portland's difficult slate on Sunday.
