Western Conf First Round: Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets
Houston has tried all season to break into the ranks of the elite Western Conference teams, but their weak defense has held them back, and is the main reason they tied with the Trail Blazers for fourth in the Conference. Portland began the season red-hot, but cooled quickly because of their own defensive struggles. This series looks like it could easily be a seven gamer, with lots of offense, and quite a bit of questionable defense along the way.
