First Looks Under the Hood

Danny and Tara talk about the Blazers’ new acquisition and more on the latest edition of the Blazer’s Edge Podcast

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Dallas Mavericks Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

On this week’s episode of the Blazer’s Edge podcast, Tara Bowen-Biggs and Danny Marang take a look at the Blazers since adding Rodney Hood, what’s new, what’s different, what could things possible look like going forward? After that it’s a look back at the 4th quarter meltdown in Dallas? What happened- was Luka Doncic too much? Then it’s time to whip around the league to review the deals made or not made and where that leaves teams in the pecking order- are there any new threats to the crown? How about in the Western Conference? All that and more on this week’s episode!
