Call this the playoff division. Every single team in this division (minus the lowly Timberwolves) made it to the West's Elite 8 last season. Can they go 4 for 5 again this season? Well, I'm not so sure. I'm curious how well Al Jefferson will do as Carlos Boozer's replacement, Melo looks to be gone by February from Denver, and it's anyone's guess how healthy the Blazers will be.
The Northwest Division KNOWS PLAYOFFS.
