Grade The Trade: Crash To PDX

Not even two weeks have passed and the Trail Blazers will already be welcoming back Dante Cunningham and Joel Przybilla to Portland and then a week later, Gerald Wallace gets his welcome in Charlotte. Funny how that works out sometimes. Although Portland has had their struggles since the Febraury 24th trade, they found a little rhythm in their victory over the Kings on Wednesday night. Aldridge was more assertive and the guys looked to be having more fun out there.

For Portland to truly play to their potential, the defense needs to step up. Once again the Blazers gave up over 50 points in the pain and allowed the Kings to shoot over 50% from the floor. If Portland plays above their level of competition, Charlotte shouldn't come close to those numbers. The 'Cats score a 3rd worst 94 points per game and only average 44% shooting from the field. Get the crowd involved early, push the tempo and continue to ride the L-Train to victory. As LA goes, this team goes. continue
