Trail Blazers @ Nuggets Game Thread


Besides a meaningless Ty Lawson bucket with under a minute to go, the Nuggets went scoreless outside the paint when they last faced off against the Trail Blazers back on December 20th. That's right. Denver, at one point, shot 0-28 from outside the paint. It's to imagine the Nuggets doing that again. Regardless of their shooting woes, the game was still up for grabs as Portland allowed over 70 points in the paint. Without a true shot-blocker inside, the Blazers must find a way to keep Ty Lawson from penetrating and Andre Miller off the blocks. Another reason the Trail Blazers escaped with a 101-93 victory was the play of JJ Hickson who not only held his counterpart, Kenneth Faried, in check (6 points, 8 rebounds) but he had a monster 18 & 18 performance to lead Rip City to victory. If JJ can have the same type of night and the guards can play lockdown defense on the perimeter, chances of a win will increase.

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