Trail Blazers Analysis
There's nothing the Blazers, Jazz or Pelicans can do that would effectively counter Golden State nearly running out an All-NBA team as a starting lineup. It is heartening, though, that a handful of relatively young teams from the NBA's middle class have decided they might as well go about the business of improvement anyway.
Festus Ezeli is one of the best rebounders in the game and also keeps getting better as a rim protector, which was quite clearly one of Portland's biggest needs entering the offseason.
The versatility that made Evan Turner look like a potential future All-Star as the second overall pick in 2010 settled nicely as a complementary piece with the Celtics.
