The Portland Timbers need points. So by that measure, Sunday was a success. The Timbers currently sit on 1.42 points per game, which, on one hand, is sixth best in the Western Conference but, on the other hand, is only .06 PPG away from third.

The Timbers' place in the table, then, is equal parts precarious and promising with 10 games to play.
