Trail Blazers @ Hornets Game Thread
52-35. That was the rebounding edge the Hornets had on the Blazers in their last meeting. That can't happen again. No Trail Blazer had over 6 boards in the contest and the team had just 6 total offensive rebounds. When you're missing 50 shots, there should be more than 6 offensive rebounds grabbed. And if by chance the Trail Blazers are struggling from the field again, they must pound the glass. JJ Hickson was held in check to just 5 rebounds, but ever since the All-Star Break he's been a machine, recording double-doubles in six of the seven games. So look for JJ to be in attack mode from the jump, setting the tone for his teammates for the rest of the game.
