Portland Trail Blazers

We've seen some great performances by Portland Trail Blazers wings recently, including a career game from Al-Farouq Aminu, a late-season push from Moe Harkless, and steadily increasing play from Rodney Hood. 

Circumstances have been different for each of these players, but all three of them will be increasingly important for Portland as they move toward the playoffs without Jusuf Nurkic.

Watch the full breakdown above to see the two reasons why Hood has been able to get comfortable with his offense right when Portland needs him most.
