Trail Blazers vs. Timberwolves Game Thread


After grinding out a no-so-pretty victory over the Nets, the Trail Blazers will once again play the role of favorite when the Timberwolves head into town. The odds are heavily stacked in Rip City's favor, winners of 14 straight over the Wolves, owners of a Top 10 home court record (13-5), and Minnesota is 2-19 on the road. While these all seem like insurmountable obstacles for the Wolves to overcome, don't forget the Blazers didn't close them out the last time the two teams met in Portland until the 4th quarter.

Make no doubts about it, all eyes will be upon LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love. Back on December 17 in Portland, Love had himself a nice outing, putting up 19 points and hauling in 17 rebounds. But it was the L-Train who stole the show, tying a career-high in points (36), at the time blocks (5), and grabbed 10 rebounds. For Portland to continue their streak over Minny, LA needs to outplay Love and get some help from the newly energized Nicolas Batum and dependable Wesley Matthews. continue
