Maybe the Portland Trail Blazers can learn from their Monday night opponents the Atlanta Hawks. Atlanta traded one of their most beloved players in Kyle Korver on Jan. 7th and in what was widely regarded as a rebuilding move.
Instead they’ve gone 11-7 since then and put themselves right in the thick of the playoff race sitting fifth overall in the East. They’ve won three of their last five including wins over two of the teams holding down spots in the West, in Houston and Denver.
Their last game though is one they’d like back as they blew a 22-point lead as Sacramento came all the way back to win 108-107.
Portland just traded one its most beloved players in center Mason Plumlee to Denver for center Jusuf Nurkic and a first round pick. The trade is thought to be about the future, but for a team that has had so much trouble on defense this could be just what they need. They get a player four years younger, less polished, but with a big upside who is also 40 pounds heavier and a better defensive player.
This will be their first game with him in the lineup.
They lost their last game 120-111 to Boston and they’ve lost three of four and four of six overall. They are also dealing with the long-term loss of Even Turner. Recently promoted to the starting lineup because of his defense, he went out with a hand injury last week.
Perhaps it’s no surprise the team has allowed
113 and 120 points with him out of the lineup. They’ll be in tough against a
game Atlanta team.
