Trail Blazers vs. Kings Game Thread


While the records may indicate this one should be a blowout, there are a few reasons why Portland should be on alert tonight. First, this is their 7th game in 11 nights. Aldridge is logging the second most minutes in the NBA and without Camby, the Blazers must tap into their bench for production. Andre barely played at all on Saturday night, and is another game-time decision tonight, meaning Wesley and Rudy got a lot of extra run.

Also, the Kings played the Blazers tough in Arco last week. If it weren't for a few tip-jam putbacks from LaMarcus, Portland could be looking at a loss right now. But, right now, the Blazers are finding ways to win. As long as Przybilla continues to come in and set great screens, freeing up our shooters, the offense should be in rhythm. Look for the Kings to continue their strategy of defending Aldridge, constantly sending double teams and making Portland beat them from downtown. Let's just hope Wesley, Rudy, and Nic are on point from beyond the arc.continue
