Blazers have their work cut out

Memphis wasn't Portland's first choice for playoffs
April 22, 2015 / Staff report

It's wasn't supposed to be Memphis.

But, the Grizzlies are who the Blazers got for the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

It's the key topic of this episode of Sportsland, Oregon 2015.

Portland got the Grizzlies after they slipped from second to fifth in the final stretch of the regular season, which they may have done by design. Memphis beat Portland four times this season, and has homecourt edge in the best-of-seven series.

The series is, of course, the first of a two-month long playoff voyage that ends in late June, with all but the most hearty of competitors still around. Others are on beaches.

Co-hosts Cliff and Derek take on the Portland=Memphis series along with pro soccer, pro football, pro baseball and all the other topics of the day, recording from Blitz Pearl in Northwest Portland.
