Yeah you can pretty much predict them, as well as the rest of the NBA.
Portland has a nice regular season, wins 45-50 games, and then gets bounced in the first or second round. They just don't pose a threat to SA or GS. I still think they are a step behind the Clipps too.
As much as I like some of their other pieces (Plumlee, Vonleh, Harkless, etc.), they need another star.
