Four points. That's all the Blazer bench mustered during Portland's 112-109 loss to San Antonio back on November 10th at the Rose Garden. There's no doubt the Blazers walk away with a win that night had the bench provided more offensive firepower. Luckily for the Trail Blazers, the reserves have shown signs of life recently and even with Victor Claver and Sasha Pavlovic starting for the injured Wesley Matthews and Nicolas Batum, the bench chipped in 23 points, led by Nolan Smith's 11. Now, Batum and Matthews' status is still undecided for Thursday's game, so the onus will be once again put on the second-unit to come up big. It's also just as important for Portland to quiet the San Antonio bench. During the last meeting, their bench poured in 63 points, with most of the damage coming via Gary Neal and his 27.

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