Five surging squads (before Tuesday’s games)
1. Portland Trail Blazers
— Make it 10 wins in a row
– They’ve been so good that even the furthest corners of the American media have started clueing in.
– No Gordon Hayward, no Rudy Gobert for much of the year, no problem.
– Still one of this year’s biggest surprises.
– This has been a down season, but Giannis and Co. are making a late run to revive it.
Damian Lillard has turned the Trail Blazers into a contender.
