The Blazers had a better week than anticipated, considering all the changes. They went 2-2, losing to the teams they should have (Bucks, Lakers) and beating one team they should have (Golden State) and one they probably shouldn't have (Memphis). Against Golden State, Raymond Felton was the leading scorer with 24 and Jamal Crawford managed just four points on 1-10 from the floor—so maybe that question is finally answered, at least. (Then again, against the Lakers they managed just 16 points combined on 5-25 shooting. Can Jonny Flynn start?)—Russ Bengtson
