With The All-Star Break, Relaxing Is Most Important Thing for Portland
The All-Star Break is upon us, Whether that Means Making Trades or Relaxing, It’s Obvious that Portland Needs a Break
The Blazers are competing for 8th place in the Western Conference and just need a spark to get back on track. Portland recently had a three game winning streak, but they haven’t put together a run that has Rip City believing like last year. They still have a long way to go if they want to win a championship, and taking a, in this case, much-needed break helps a lot of teams. So far, only C.J. McCollum will be participating in All-Star festivities. Otherwise, the rest of the team will have the break to contemplate what to do for the rest of the season.
Portland might just need another big in order to make a run. Possibly Jahlil Okafor if the rumors are true. If Portland cannot go after someone, than Mason Plumlee should use this break to regroup. He still has a tremendous potential to improve besides his stat stuffing season. If he can master the defensive schemes a little better, I would not be surprised to see Portland’s defense increase dramatically.
Whatever happens, a think we all could use a break.
