How good are the Portland Trailblazers?

The Trailblazers are definitely a threat in the Western Conference, anchored by LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez. The Trailblazers are young and talented, and will mature even more as the season progresses.

The Trailblazers are atop their division, and are battling the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the San Antonio Spurs for the best record in the Western Conference.

Nicholas Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Damian Lillard are the driving forces for the Trailblazers. Lopez has evolved into the center position for the Trailblazers, and replaced J.J Hickson.

What are the keys to the Trailblazers successful season?

Defense.

The Blazers began the season in the bottom third for points allowed per 100 sessions.

With the talent that Damon Lillard has, acting as floor general, the ball always seems as though it is in the right hands with Lillard.

How does the Blazers match up with other Western Conference teams?

The Blazers can match up with any team in the Western Conference. The Blazers had a big win in the past week against the NBA's top team, Indiana Pacers.

The Blazers hold their success in their own hands. If they focus on those key elements that have made them successful in the early part of the season, the Blazers will have no trouble going into the playoffs and contend for the Western Conference crown.
