Trail Blazers @ Kings Game Thread
After disposing of the Wolves, Portland heads onto the road for a quick game then back to the friendly confines of the Rose Garden. While the Kings own the Western Conference's worst record at 9-30 and have lost 7 consecutive games to the Blazers, included 3 straight at Arco Arena, the Trail Blazers biggest opponent tomorrow could be themselves.
Arco isn't what it used to be and will be milder than most NBA crowds. Portland can't just show up and expect the Kings to roll over and die for them. They need to be the aggressors and create their own energy, much like they did back on the 7th in Minnesota. Get them down early and they won't have the means to fight back. Although Camby is a game-time decision, even if he plays, it will be sparingly. That means, Przybilla and Cunningham really need to help LA out on the boards! continue
