Trail Blazers @ Pacers Game Thread
After Coach Terry Stotts had success by playing LA at the 5 and surrounding him with a bunch of guards and small forwards, what will be do this time around against the Pacers? Will he view that success as a one-time ordeal or will it become a staple of the Trail Blazers' offense. During the comeback stretch, Aldridge was in the post as the center and came up with two, absolutely huge offensive rebounds, which led to putbacks. Not only was he a beast on the boards (13 rebs), but he commanded a double team and Coach made sure there were shooting lined up along the arc ready to catch and release if left open. Will we see the Lillard, Matthews, Batum, Babbitt, Aldridge combo once more? I certainly hope so.
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
