Default Blazers getting better

Yeah, the Blazers were struggling before at the start of the season. Not everybody seemed to be on the same page and some of the older veterans seemed to be coasting and there were some doubts.

They really pointed to this game on Christmas Day as a bench mark for their season to see if they could eventually put it together and contend for the championship again. And now their confidence must be higher than it's ever been so far this season because within the last few weeks, first with their 96 to 86 win in Portland against the World Champions and now their win this last Monday night in L.A., they've at least shown the Lakers that come May and June, Portland will be another big road block for the Lakers to get through to repeat.
