Portland Trail Blazers Battle Memphis in Round 1 of the NBA Playoffs
I think Memphis is a tough matchup with their bigs and is one of the best defenses in the league. Portland will definitely have to play nothing short of an excellent series. With two stars in Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge who can take over a game they are in good hands but I think a win in the first round will come about by team ball. I'm just not sure Portland is deep enough to get past the Grizzlies who could wear Portland down with their stingy defense. If Portland wins that probably means the series went six or seven games and that is what I'm hoping for.
