Get To Know Dalano On The Brief Case, Episode 81

After spending almost the entire month at home (happy Leap Day to you Gregorians), the Trail Blazers head out to begin March with back-to-back games versus the Grizzlies in Memphis. But before shoving off, had to get yet another edition of The Brief Case podcast, which you can listen and subscribe to below, in the can...

Topics on this, the 81st edition, include...

• Portland's loss to the Heat on Tuesday to finish off a winless month of February

• Staying motivated during a nine-game losing streak

• Deandre Ayton suffering a right hand sprain and the status of Portland's injured players

• Portland's offernsive, defensive and net ratings with a month and a half to go

• The Trail Blazers failing to cover in seven-straight games and the increasingly unlikely prospect of hitting the over on their season win projection

And the show wraps up with an interview with Trail Blazers guard/forward Dalano Banton regarding his first few weeks in Portland, the difference between playing for his former team and his current team, whether a "perfect situation" exists, how he would describe his style of play, growing up in Toronto, the state of basketball in Canada when he was growing up compared to where it's at today, his journey from Rexdale to New England to Western Kentucky to Nebraska and what his hopes are for himself and the Blazers in the last month and a half of the season. Good guy.
