The Blazers Are Still Good Enough To Barely Beat Bad Teams

I'm not trying to be Debbie Downer. I'm fully aware that this team has already over achieved this season. And I know brighter days are ahead. Now, with all those rational thoughts out of the way, losing still blows.

Which is why Portland's dramatic victory over Milwaukie should make me happy. It does.Really. I'm glad that as bad as the team is playing, they are still good enough to barely beat other bad teams (sometimes). In fact, besides that inspiring win over the Lakers (by the way, wasn't that supposed to propel the team to an enthusiastic finish?), guess when the last time Portland beat a team that is currently over .500? That would be the 9th, of January.

The only way to get through the post-win streak part of the season is to wholeheartedly buy into the Blazers marketing campaign: the future is bright, the future is bright, the future is bright...

Or, you can just dance it off:
