08:05 AM ET 11.13 | Two weeks does not a season make, but it's getting late early in Portland. Damian Lillard looked like a rookie. LaMarcus Aldridge didn't look like an All-Star. And seven games into the season, the Trail Blazers look like they've reached a crossroads. The Blazers lost their fourth consecutive game Monday night, falling 95-87 to the Atlanta Hawks before 19,095 at the Rose Garden, and that spirited, promising season-opening stretch is a distant memory. How discouraging was this loss? The very night the team's vaunted sellout streak ended at 195 games, a solemn Wesley Matthews sat in the home locker room and urged Blazers fans to stick with the young, rebuilding Blazers, who fell to 2-5 on the season.

The team is rebuilding. What do fans expect? 10 game winning streaks?

This team is going nowhere with this bench point blank..............<----- Lilliard will be fine but when you have no one on the bench that can provide any type of spark or production you will not get far. The starters have to play too many minutes and will be worn out at this rate because no one on their bench can produce.
