Portland Trail Blazers clinch 2021 NBA playoffs spot

Once again, the Portland Trail Blazers are headed to the NBA Playoffs. With their 132-116 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night, the Blazers clinched a playoff spot for the eighth consecutive season, the longest active streak in the NBA. With a six-seed standing in the Western Conference, they'll avoid the play-in tournament and face the three-seed Nuggets once again in the first round of the playoffs. Aaron Fentress, who covers the Portland Trail Blazers for the Oregonian/OregonLive, joined OPB to take stock of the season and look ahead to the playoffs.
