The Portland Trail Blazers play their first postseason game Sunday night against the Houston Rockets, and they’re facing steep odds. The Rockets have won against the Blazers all three times that they’ve been matched up in playoff history.

Added to that fact, the Blazers haven’t made it past the first round of the playoffs for 14 years, despite reaching the post-season eight times in that period.

We’ll hear from Sports Illustrated NBA Writer and Blazer’s Edge editor Ben Golliver about what we might see out of the Blazers in the postseason, and what you’ll want to pay attention to.
