LaMarcus Aldridge has been fantastic so far in this young season, averaging 22.7 points and 9.7 rebounds through the first three games. And as we all know, Dirk Nowitzki is still out as he's still recovering from knee surgery so the focal point of Portland's offense needs to be getting LA the ball deep in the post. Given his length, height, and overall skill, Aldridge should have no problem getting off good looks against like the likes of Chris Kaman, Elton Brand, and Brandan Wright. Also, this is a close-out game as the Trail Blazers are wrapping up a three-game road trip. Aldrdige's leadership will be key in guiding this young team through the last game on the road. Nobody would have believed the Blazers could possibly be 3-1 after tonight when the schedule was released in July. But the opportunity is there and knocking. LaMarcus will be the first to answer the door and let it in.

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