Trail Blazers vs. Knicks Game Thread
Although the Blazers had their eight-game home winning streak snapped Sunday night at the hands of the Heat, it's time to start a new on against the Knicks, a team the Blazers defeated back on October 30th. All eyes will be on Aldridge and Stoudemire, and deservingly so. Both players have put their respective teams on their backs and are playing like legit Top-5 power forwards. We know both guys will have huge nights, the question remains which role players step up to the plate and deliver?
The Knicks will take a lot of 3-point shots, so it is imperative for the Blazers to get out and defend that 3-point line. Where Portland has the clear-cut advantage is inside, where Camby, Przybilla, Cunningham, and Aldridge have a decided physical advantage over their New York counterparts. If Portland can continue to get an aggressive performance out of Batum, stay in the paint, and hold the Knicks to under 50% shooting, they should get that win streak back started in the Rose Garden! continue
