So i decided to take a closer look at the recent 10 of 11 streak the blazers are on and what i found is pretty interesting. There is only one TRULY impressive win.
1st game was vs Phoenix, back to back for phoenix after hosting the jizz. Por by 20
2nd game was vs memphis, back to back for Mem after playing at sac. Por by 20
3rd game was vs Jizz, back to back for Jizz after hosting the knicks. Por by 21
4th game was @OKC, no back to back for either team. Por by 35
5th game was @ Houston, no back to back for either team. HOU by 14
6th was @ Mem, no back to back for either team. Por by 3
7th was @ SA, back to back for both teams. Por by 12
8th was vs. LAL, back to back for LAL after hosting den. Por by 8
9th was @ LAC, back to back for both. Por by 15
10th was vs. OKC, no back to back for either team. Por by 30
11th was vs Den, who didnt care. Por by 28
So to recap, portland played 4 teams who were on the second of a back to back while portland was rested. Portland played 0 back to back when it wasnt a back to back for the other team. Thats a pretty favorable schedule.
The margins of when portland played a team on their second of a back to back were 20, 20, 21, and 8. Those other two big wins, the ones of 35 and 30 were both against the lowly thunder. So on games where the teams were on the same playing field, i.e. no back to backs, portland's margin ov victory were 3, 12, 15, along with a 14 point loss to Houston. The only impressive one of those was the SA game. I dont count the denver game cause they didnt care and george karl even said that during the game
