This is the key matchup. LaMarcus Aldridge vs. Marc Gasol. During last week's 85-91 loss to Memphis, LA had a line of 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 6 assists, but he shot just 2-13 from the field and was unable to score in the post over the much-bulkier Gasol. On the other side of the scope, Gasol was steady throughout the entire game, ending with 23 points on 10-17 shooting to go along with 12 rebounds. Although Aldridge is much more deadly when he does work in the post, if Memphis decides to roll with Gasol on that defensive matchup, LA possesses the versatility in his skill-set to take him outside of the perimeter and do his damage away from the hoop. Not only can it get LA rolling but it can also open up the paint for guys like Damian Lillard to operate. Prediction: If Aldridge outplays or plays Gasol to a standstill, the Trail Blazers will walk away victorious Tuesday night!

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