1) lack of assists from the guard positions.
2) lack of defense from the point guard position.
3) lack of rebounding help for Lamarcus.
4) lack of a center who can score.
As a team we need to find a way past these four problems if we can even think of getting past any team in the first round. Lamarcus cannot carry the team every night but with help the TEAM can win against any other team in the league. ROLL ON BLAZERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. add another problem this team has; lack of 3 point shooting

  2. I only partially agree with this. Miller has historically been a solid point guard in terms of assists, but it's the lack of assists from other positions that is the real problem. Miller leads the team at 6.9 APG - the next highest is BRoy at 2.7 APG, playing in limited minutes. With problem #2...that's what you get with Miller, and why you pair him with Matthews. I've heard this alot recently (from D-Rose MVP arguments) so it might be cliche, but there aren't many good defensive point guards in the league to begin with, and most top-tier point guards are impossible to stay in front of.

    As far as the last 2 problems, I feel like those were why the Blazers got Wallace. Until/If Oden gets healthy (or gets shipped) they aren't going to invest in another Center, and will find players like Camby as replacement starters. As long as Oden is on the roster, the Center spot will never be fully resolved until he's totally healed.

    If it weren't for this season's injuries, I don't think these issues would be nearly as glaring as they appear to seem.
