Having Theo (or Joel) under the basket makes the "penetrate-and-dish" option one of the only plays that teams can run with consistency against the Blazers. Theo and Joel don't give up many easy lay-ups and contest every single shot that goes up in the paint. I know there's not a stat for this, but I would be willing to wager that the Blazers are one of the top 5 interior defensive teams in the NBA.

Look at last night's run in the second quarter - the Bulls got to the basket at will with Theo and Joel on the bench. They are difference-makers on every defensive set.

So I guess I would be a little more hesitant to trade Theo.
