Did the Trail Blazers Really Improve This Season?

The Fanalyst Edition of the Blazer's Edge Podcast is back, and this week we break down the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Clippers Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs and ask, "Did the Blazers flourish under coach Terry Stotts this season?"

Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Sports

The Fanalysts are back on the Blazer's Edge Podcast to talk about the Legendary 2016 Trail Blazers Playoff Run. Jo and Tara break down Game 1 and talk about Damian Lillard vs. Chris Paul and find some bright spots in Moe Harkless and Gerald Henderson's aggressive play.

Next they look back to try and uncover if the team made progress in key areas over the course of the season. Specifically, did their defense improve, did they foul smarter and did they commit fewer turnovers?

Finally we devote plenty of time to our extra super special "player" of the week, Coach Terry Stotts.
