From top to bottom, it doesn’t get any better than the Northwest Division in the NBA this season. The Thunder and Blazers meet in an inter-division matchup Sunday night in Portland.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder controlled the game against the Celtics for three quarters on Friday night before Boston stormed back in the fourth quarter behind Kyrie Irving and Al Horford to drop the Thunder back down to .500.
It’s been an up and down start to the season for OKC, which is still meshing as a team with two new superstars. But I wonder how much will really change with three established stars who have played the same way for their entire careers.
Having Russell Westbrook, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony take turns isolating opponents isn’t the worst problem to have but it just isn’t optimal for the Thunder.
And if that is how Billy Donovan is going to let them play, he has to ask more out of the entire team on the defensive end. Right now, the Thunder just doesn’t have much synergy at all but the talent is still through the roof.
Portland Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard hit another shot just in time on Friday night to sink the Lakers. The 30-foot rainbow over Brandon Ingram’s outstretched hand beat the buzzer and send the Blazers’ fans home happy.
Portland has established itself as a middle-of-the-road team. The Blazers have lost at Milwaukee and Utah and at home to the Raptors and Clippers.
They aren’t very much a middling team but what do you do with those two great guard? The Blazers certainly need at least a piece or two before they will compete with any of the teams who have the Warriors in their sights.
The Blazers could still win the division, though. All five teams are good but none have established themselves as great yet. You better believe this game will mean a lot to Portland on its home floor.
