5-1 and Lillard’s Love: Truth or Mirage for the Trail Blazers?

The Dave and Dia podcast takes you on a tour of a busy, and maybe season-changing, week.

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Portland Trail Blazers fans are happier this week than they were at this time last week, and the Dave and Dia podcast is playing along! This week Dia Miller gets to come swooping in like Han Solo down the Death Star channel, blasting away the twin Tie Fighters of negativity and doom so her Blazers can put the torpedo of a 5-1 road trip right down the haters’ exhaust port. Meanwhile, Dave Deckard is back in the command cruiser, looking at the overall flow of the season and wondering if, “It’s a trap!”

Either way, the duo will entertain you talking about the four ways the Blazers excelled on this trip, the records they broke along the way, and what it all means for the standings and the last couple weeks of the season. They also dissect the play-in tournament, taking LeBron James and Mark Cuban to task for dissing it. And all that is BEFORE Dave goes WAY off on the idea of Kevin Love as a Blazer. The co-hosts also talk about Chris Haynes’ piece on Damian Lillard not getting support and whether it’s worrisome at all.

It’s a jam-packed show and well worth a listen! You can find the episode and/or subscribe by clicking here. Or just click the button on the embed below and listen to your heart’s content.
