Trail Blazers @ Hawks Game Thread


JJ Hickson is coming off of a career-high 21 rebounds against a Chicago frontcourt that features Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer. And when JJ grabs 15 or more boards, the Trail Blazers are 9-4 in those contests. One game they didn't come away victorious was against the Hawks back on November 12th where Atlanta handed Portland a 95-87 loss in front of the BlazerManiacs. In that contest, Hickson was a beast as he scored 19 points, on 8-14 shooting, and pulled down 18 rebounds, including 7 on the offensive end of the floor. Normally those numbers would have resulted in a W for the Trail Blazers, but the home team shot just 36.1% (30-83) on the night and received only 6 bench points. If the Trail Blazers can shoot like they did against Chicago (41-84, 48.8%) and get the same production out of Hickson on the glass, they'll pick up their second win on this road trip.

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