Portland still dangerous

Though a winning record remains in reach for Portland, the talk from Blazers in the paper out here suggest they’re ready for summer vacation. A strong finish doesn’t seem to mean much, even after all the progress the franchise has made this season.

Avery Johnson isn’t buying that line.

“We’re not believing that because the last time they played at home, we thought they played against one of the top teams in the Western Conference and beat them,” he said. “For us we’re not looking at that. They beat the Lakers here at home, they had a rough night last night [at Sacramento], but they’re very capable.

“For us we need to play it out because we know once the season ends on Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday we’ll be going somewhere to start our games and we’ve got to be ready.”
