The Blazers are competitive in the second round of the playoffs. Winning a series wouldn’t be new for the Blazers in the Lillard-McCollum era, though they benefited from injuries to Blake Griffin and Chris Paul during their first-round win over the Clippers two years ago.

The biggest takeaway from the cold-weather data is home runs are tempered in the cold, so don’t sweat only one homer from Castellanos. In fact, be encouraged he has slugged six doubles with a pair of triples. Most interesting is Castellanos’ already increasing fly ball rate continues to climb while his hard-hit rate is an astounding 52 percent. That will regress, but for his career, Castellanos carries a well above-average hard-hit clip so expect his lofted balls to begin clearing the fences as the mercury rises.
