Trail Blazers vs. Celtics Game Thread

After the scheduled softened up for the Trail Blazers over the last two weeks, it begins to increase in difficulty this Thursday at the Rose Garden when the East-leading Celtics roll into town. Portland will have to be firing on all cylinders to escape with a win, because Boston's size inside (Davis, O'Neal, Garnett) could give the depleted Blazers fits.

For the Trail Blazers to shock the world, they need to do these three things: 1-Take chances. Whether its pushing a fast break or playing the passing lanes, the Blazers need to go all out and play with nothing to lose. These plays will get the crowd fired up and could lead to some much-needed easy buckets. 2- Unless your man is Ray Allen, then sag into the paint. Without Camby in there, Portland will need all the help they can get from their guards on the glass. continue
