Trail Blazers @ Jazz Game Thread


Playing in Salt Lake City has never been an easy task for the rest of the NBA, but especially for the Trail Blazers who are just 2-10 in their 12 trips to the Salt Palace since LaMarcus Aldridge's rookie year. Like Portland, Utah has a rabid fan base and they can smell blood in the water. If the Trail Blazers come out lackadaisical and turn the ball over, give up easy buckets or commit silly fouls, it will snowball and it'll happen in the bat of an eye. It's important for the Trail Blazers to weather the early storm and stay within striking distance early on. Portland can't win this game in the first 12 minutes, but they can certainly lose it if they don't come out of the gates ready. For this to happen, the Blazers must dump it inside to LA and play inside-out. 3-pointers are great, but the way you win on the road is by living at the line and controlling the paint.
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
