The Trail Blazers finish 0-4 for the 2021-22 preseason and head into the regular season with perhaps more questions than they went into preseason with. Hosts Danny Marang and Brandon Sprague will break down tonight’s game against the Golden State Warriors and the overall themes from the preseason overall.
Less concerned with Steph Curry going for 40-plus points and more about how and where he got them. The new look defense is sure to be a work in progress, but how much time will they need and do they have enough of it before things get upside down? Should Jusuf Nurkic be featured the way he has said he wants to be after looking very much the same - some highs, some lows with peaks on both ends?
Will Damian Lillard serve as a panacea to all things stinky upon his full integration on opening night? The Blazers have never been a team in the Lillard-era that could just flip a switch - will Coach Billups be able to find that spark and ignite a fire that heretofore hasn’t been there or will they have to fall on their face before figuring it out?
Kick on the stream, join the conversation and have fun...that’s an order.
