On this week’s episode of the Blazer’s Edge podcast, Danny Marang takes a look at the Portland Trail Blazers after 5 days off due to the NBA postponing two games against the Memphis Grizzlies and how that impacted their first game back to action against the New York Knicks.
Beyond that, what can we take from the new defensive looks? Can the bench be counted on to fill in for CJ McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic like they did against the Knicks? What did the Blazers do differently with the second unit? Is this a building block for Anfernee Simons? Should the Blazers go out and pick up a point guard off the street? Will they continue to use Derrick Jones Jr. more in the pick and roll? Which changes will stick and which will they throw away? How long can Damian Lillard stay supernova hot? There’s a lot to get into in this shortened, quick hit podcast so buckle in and get your week started right!
