Trail Blazers Vs. 76ers Game Thread


Without Andrew Bynum, the 76ers have focused on taking their game to the perimeter. Philly takes 18 3's per game and makes 37% of their attempts -- good enough for 8th in the NBA. That means the Trail Blazers must close out on shooters such as Jason Richardson, Nick Young, Dorrell Wright, Jrue Holiday, and even Spencer Hawes. The one thing about Philly's shooters is they are extrmely streaky. We've all seen first hand what J-Rich is capable of as we witnessed him single-handily take over the 2010 playoff series when he was in Phoenix and Young who has scored 20+ in single quarters on more then one occasion. This means Portland must fight through screens and go over the top of the pick and rool, rather then underneath which would allow for more open looks.

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