Trail Blazers @ Bobcats Game Thread
Over the course of their 17 games this season, the Trail Blazers have hit the century mark eight times, winning six of those contests. While the Bobcats on average allow 100.47 points per game, they've only given up 100+ in seven of their 15 games. But when Charlotte does allow over 100 points, they have won only once in those seven games. Bottom line: score over 100 and Portland picks up their second straight road win. Look for Lillard to set the tone early by setting up his teammates. I've noticed his best games come when he looks to pass-first, score second, mainly in the first-half. Once the rest of the team is in a rhythm, Dame then looks to weaknesses in the defense to attack, similar to how he performed down the stretch in Cleveland.
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
