[Podcast] The Blazers are Going to the Western Conference Finals

Dan and Tara answer questions about the upcoming series with the Golden State Warriors

NBA: Playoffs-Portland Trail Blazers at Denver Nuggets Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

What a week it has been for the Portland Trail Blazers! Like a lot of Blazer fans, Dan and Tara are still trying to figure out what is real and what is fantasy. Listen to the latest edition of the Blazer’s Edge Podcast, where we answer your questions about a wide variety of topics: will Al-Farouq Aminu and Maurice Harkless have a bigger impact in the Golden State series than they did against Denver? Who should the Blazer’s bring back, Rodney Hood, Enes Kanter or Steph Curry? What kind of defense can we expect to see and what will the Warriors throw at the Blazers?

All this and more, thank you to our Twitter friends for all of the questions!
