Trail Blazers @ Timberwolves Game Thread


During Portland's win over Minnesota earlier this season, Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews combined to score 58 points, on 23-34 shooting from the field, including 9-14 behind the arc to go along with 11 assists and just 2 turnovers. Lee started in the backcourt along with Luke Ridnour last meeting which saw them combine for just 21 points and 3 assists. We all know Lee won't be active and it appears the Wolves have given the starting shooting guard reigns over to rookie Alexey Shved who has been impressive this season, averaging 11 points and nearly 5 assists per night. I expect Love to play and Nikola Pekovic is a load down low, so the Trail Blazers' advantage in this matchup is on the wings. If Matthews and Lillard shoot lights out again, it will be a big, big road win against not only a division rival but a team Portland is fighting for, for the eight and final playoff spot.

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