Trail Blazers Analysis
Destroying the rest of the league with speed and finesse has an enduring appeal. But despite the success of the Warriors and Raptors, it remains exceedingly difficult to build a winner through the backcourt as the Blazers and Wizards are finding this season.
The Pistons and Blazers were two teams expected to take a step forward this season. For Detroit, they continue to rebound better without the league's leading rebounder while the Blazers have regressed on offense.
It's a testament to Lillard, McCollum and Stotts that four promising young centers are so willing to play so hard for them in whatever limited opportunities they get. But it's also worth wondering if the center by committee rotation is actually less effective than if they had a player that could settle into that role with heavy minutes.
