Tweet of the Night: Behind Lillard and Aldridge,Trail Blazers are Hottest Show in Town

Damian LillardAs the New York Knicks (3-6) and Brooklyn Nets (3-6) continue their slow starts, the always lively Knicks and Nets crowds look to the opposition for excitement.

Enter Damian Lillard, LaMarcus Aldridge and the Portland Trail Blazers, currently the hottest team in the NBA.

Sunday’s 118-110 overtime win in Toronto moved the Blazers — winners of six straight — to 8-2 overall, first place in the Northwest Division and sole possession of second place in the Western Conference.

It’s too early to start talking playoff seeding, especially a No. 2 seed, but the Blazers have sufficiently answered several early season questions that may help forecast their outlook for the rest of the season.

Not only did Portland address the biggest detractor to last season’s failed playoff pursuit — it’s bench — but has also seen significant improvement from it’s core — Lillard, Aldridge, Batum — all of which, has the Blazers humming along and Aldridge playing some of the best basketball of his career.

Behind 25 points and 11 rebounds today — his fifth consecutive double-double — Aldridge has led the Blazers to a 4-0 week which should earn him plenty of consideration for Western Conference Player of the Week.

I think we can officially burry those offseason trade rumors.

As for Lillard, he has seen no sophomore slump, and has built off his Rookie of the Year season while averaging 19.6 points and 5.6 assists and 4.8 rebounds.

He has a knack for putting together his best performances on the biggest stages, so it looks like come Monday night, Nets’ fans will have at least one thing to be excited about.
