The Trail Blazers lost in Miami on Wednesday night, 104-92. CJ McCollum and Anfernee Simons each had monster firsts halves but the Heat defense locked up the Blazers down the stretch as Bam Adebayo put Portland away in final seven minutes.

Today's episode also breaks down the Western Conference Tiers, ranking each of the 15 teams in the West by group. It's a fun exercise to see where the Blazers stack up and how the playoff picture is taking shape. It's a monthly check in with what the rest of the West is doing and what part of the middle of the pack the Blazers belong in.

Finally, the show closes with the latest trade rumors. The Blazers are reportedly still in the market for Ben Simmons. Portland is also eyeing Jerami Grant and Jaylen Brown. Plus, an injury to Myles Turner in Indiana complicates the trade market for Portland and the rest of the NBA.
