Portland Trail Blazers
The Trail Blazers have started their six-game road trip with two consecutive losses, one by nine to the Lakers and the other by sixteen in Minnesota.
Seth Curry hurt his knee in the loss at the Staples Center and missed the game against Minnesota. He says the injury isn’t serious and that he’ll return sometime during the trip, though all indications are that he won’t play in Washington.
That has led to some playing time for Portland’s first round pick in 2018 and the first American to get drafted immediately after graduating from high school, Anfernee Simons.
The 24th overall pick in this year’s draft scored seven points in thirteen minutes against the Timberwolves and grabbed three rebounds. Teri Stotts has given Simons the nod over Wade Baldwin because of how he fits in with Nik Stauskas and Evan Turner as a slashing scorer. His work ethic has also impressed those around the team in the first few months of his professional career.
As promising as Simons’ future may be, he is a downgrade over the hot-shooting Curry in the second unit and the timing could be better in the middle of the road trip.
Washington has just five wins this season but its most impressive by far was a road win in Portland way back on the 22nd of October.
The Wiz won that game, 125–124, in overtime behind twenty-eight points from Markieff Morris, another twenty-five from Bradley Beal and twenty-two off the bench from Kelly Oubre Jr.
Otherwise, Washington has mostly compiled wins against poor teams: Orlando, Cleveland, etc. There is plenty of opportunity to rack up wins like those when you play in a division that consists of Miami, Charlotte, Orlando and Atlanta.
That weak competition is the number one reason Washington fans shouldn’t give up on their team’s chance to right the ship and get this thing back in the direction of the playoffs.
Believe it or not, the Wizards are still a co-favorite to win that division. They had also won three in a row prior to losing to Brooklyn at home on Friday night. It’s losses like those that hold this team back.
Dwight Howard had twenty-five and seventeen in that game but he didn’t get any help outside of Beal and Wall, who combined for thirty-six.
