Both teams play on the road tonight as Houston is in Atlanta and Portland is in OKC, so neither team has an advantage on that front. Coach Stotts kept his rotation to just nine players in the Opening Night win over Los Angeles, but something tells me we will see more of a rotation as the season goes along, especially on second nights of a back-to-back. Both teams are pretty similar in terms of talent and I suspect this one will be another winner take all in the fourth quarter, so whichever bench is able to spell their starters best through the first 36 minutes, that squad should have enough gas left in their tanks to get the W. Here's hoping it's the visitors!

So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
