Trail Blazers Vs Magic Game Thread


The Trail Blazers are coming off their most impressive road trip of the year, winning three out of four games in five nights against the likes of New York, Memphis, and Minnesota. On paper, the Magic seem to be in way over their heads, but we've seen this Portland team before have trouble playing to the level of their competition. And the last time the Blazers returned home from an extended road trip, they laid an egg against the Sacramento Kings to start a homestand. Things have changed since then, for the better, and now the Trail Blazers must focus if they want to make a legit run at the postseason. They passed the first test this weekend when they handled business against a Timberwolves squad missing their two best players on the second night of a back-to-back which was an encouraging sign for playoff dreams. But a new day brings upon new challenges for the team to meet. It starts tonight, in the Rose City.

So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
