Rank File: January 14

The Trail Blazers are in a mini-holding pattern in this week's power rankings. How they perform on the road will decide whether they move up, down or not at all come this time next week. But first, this week's results. ranks the Blazers No. 7:
Considering they were starting their seven-game trip at 9:30 a.m. Pacific time, you have to admire the Blazers taking the Raps to double OT. But playing a back-to-back after logging a career-high 52 minutes will be a good test for the young legs of Brandon Roy. ranks the Blazers No. 9:
How will these kids hold up on the road after their remarkable 17-1 run? Take your curiosity one step further now, as in: How will they respond to a double-OT loss in Toronto in the opener of that seven-game trip?'s Marty Burns ranks the Blazers No. 8:
Brandon Roy says he understands if he doesn't make the All-Star team. But if his team keeps going like it has been of late (17 victories in its last 19 games), he won't have to worry. Even in the crowded West backcourt, the coaches will find room for the second-year standout.
