Trail Blazers vs. Heat Game Thread
The time has come! Portland, winners of 8 straight at home, battle the league's hottest team, the Miami Heat, who themselves have won 12 straight road games. Something's got to give. After a shaky start, the Heat are finally clicking, winners of 8 in a row, and doing so in dominant fashion. The Trail Blazers will not only need their A game but the crowd behind them needs to be LOUD! Even though Miami might be more talented, the Blazers thrive off of the energy from the Rose Garden faithful which can close down the talent gap.
To win, Aldridge doesn't need to play like an All-tar, he needs to play like a superstar. We're talking 30+ points and 10+ rebounds. Whenever we need a bucket, we need LA to deliver. If Portland can get solid contributions from the bench, Camby keeping the Heat off the glass and Wesley/Batum slowing down one of either Wade or LeBron, the streak at the RG will be extended!continue
