Trail Blazers @ Hornets Game Thread
This is quite possibly the biggest game remaining on Portland's schedule. A win and a comfy, two-game lead over New Orleans for the 6th spot out West. A win also ties up the season series at 2, which means the tiebreaker goes to the squad with the better conference record, which the Trail Blazers would win (19 losses to 21). But, a loss gives the Hornets the season series win (3-1), ties the Trail Blazers in the loss column and makes it a mad dash for #6 in April. The Hornets will be without David West, who's lost for the year with a torn ACL. And even with smaller crowds, the Hornets play extremely well at home, posting a 24-11 record.
So Rip City,how will Portland bottle up Chris Paul this time around?continue
