The Brief Case, Episode 67

Greetings, not from Cleveland, but from the Oregon coast. I stayed behind on this trip (we made our travel schedules prior to the trade, which, in retrospect, was probably the wrong order of operations) so I, like you, am watching the Trail Blazers make their way through another week-long trip from home. We are the same.

So without the rigors of the road trip, I've had time to get back into the podcast saddle to record yet another edition of The Brief Case, which you can listen and subscribe to below...

Topics on this, the 67th edition, include...

• The Trail Blazers securing their first road win in nearly a month versus the Pacers in Indianapolis

• Overcoming a tough call in Indianapolis after not being able to do the same thing then night before in Milwaukee

• The mystery games not yet on Portland's schedule for the first full week of December (after recording, the NBA announced the Blazers would play the Warriors in Golden State on December 6 and host the Mavericks at Moda Center on December 8).

• The Blazers going 2-1 since the return of Malcolm Brogdon and Scoot Henderson

• Injury timelines for Anfernee Simons and Ish Wainright

• Portland's offensive and defensive ratings

• The Blazers going 3-0 versus the spread in their last three games and an update on where the team stands in terms of hitting their season over of 28.5 wins

• The Remix acquiring the rights to Moe Harkless, Ibou Badji's return and Duop Reath eating up backup center minutes
