The Philadelphia 76ers' 107-103 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday was only one game out of the 66 that they will play this season, but many of the team's strengths and weaknesses were clearly evident.

As with any game, there were some good aspects (they held Portland to 41.2 percent shooting), some bad (the Blazers finished 9-for-19 from beyond the arc), and plenty of ugly (20 turnovers).

Even with 16 fewer games than normal, the 2011-12 campaign is still more of a marathon than a sprint. So even with a compressed schedule, there is more than enough time for the 76ers to learn from their opening night loss before the season gets away from them.
