Greg Oden and Elliot Williams have not played a game this season due to injury, thus they are not listed.

Gerald Wallace was acquired in a trade for Joel Pryzbilla and Dante Cunningham on February 24. Only his Trail Blazers stats are listed.

Anaylsis:

Overall, Portland possesses 6 players that average in double-figure scoring numbers, which is very encouraging, seeing as how the team is more often than not beset by injury troubles. LaMarcus Aldridge has really come into his own as Portland’s main scoring force, and should be considered as a candidate for the league’s Most Improved Player award. His points and rebounding averages have jumped up substantially, and he means more to the team as a whole, in terms of both a frontcourt presence and as a leader.

The likely cause of this was Brandon Roy’s knees – which will more than likely be riddled with discomfort for the remainder of his career. You can’t fault him for at least trying to play through the pain, as he adapts to his new role off the bench. His averages are way down from what he’s used to, and his explosiveness is a but a fraction of his peak physical prowess. Even so, he hasn’t complained.

Gerald Wallace has stepped in and has been nothing short of outstanding for Portland. His per 36 averages are far better than what they were in Charlotte, and his defense and hustle has only complimented the already-stellar defensive hustle of Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum and Andre Miller. Rudy Fernandez has struggled with his shooting the entire season, going through a season’s worth of shooting gallery nightmare passes, but still gives 110% in terms of effort on the defensive side of the ball.

In terms of observation, expect Portland to go with a 9-man rotation in the playoffs, with Andre Miller, Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum, Gerald Wallace and LaMarcus Aldridge forming a small, but scary opening five defensively. Brandon Roy, Marcus Camby, Rudy Fernandez and Patrick Mills will be expected to come off the bench whenever the situation arises, with Chris Johnson only finding time should Portland’s big men be experiencing foul trouble. They aren’t the most lethal team on the court, and the stats might not rank them as an elite team, but the Portland Trail Blazers are extremely efficient.
