Trail Blazers @ Timberwolves Gmae Thread


The Trail Blazers have won 13 straight games over the Wolves, the longest such streak against any other NBA franchise, but it's not going to be easy tonight. The new-look Wolves have been much more competitive since the acquisitions of Martell Webster and Michael Beasley and Kevin Love's improved game. They still aren't used to winning, so even if they jump ahead early they will leave the door open for a Portland comeback. But the Blazers shouldn't need a comeback if they run the offense through Aldridge, who tied a career-high with 36 points last time around against Minnesota. While Love puts up great stats, he is lackluster on the defensive end, allowing LA to pick and chose his spots to score on Love.

Outside of LA dominating in the post, Portland needs great nights from Camby on the glass and another starter to help shoulder the scoring load. Wesley Matthews has been in the longest slump since being inserted into the starting lineup but he shouldn't have a problem scoring on rookie Wesley Johnson. Also, the bench must come ready to play to prove they were no one-hit wonder after sparking the comeback in Houston.continue
