I remember I started a thread a few years ago asking whether or not their bench rotation could've made the playoffs
quote:I like their starting five too. They're small upfront though. Like someone else said, their bench is the problem.
Portland has an impressive looking starting five on paper with Aldridge, Hickson, Batum, Lillard, and Matthews, but they all shoot somewhat low FG%
Lillard and Matthews are both bottom 10 at their position in PER fwiw
Balanced and talented starting five. Just checked, Portland's bench is dead last at 16ppg (second worst is Indiana with 26ppg)
