Trail Blazers Vs Kings Game Thread
The Kings are the only winless team on the road in the Western Conference (0-6). With that in mind, the Trail Blazers should look to attack early on and let it be known from the jump that they are not losing this game. Hopefully they deflates Sacramento's spirit and they concede. But if they are allowed to hang around, they could become a problem down the stretch in a tight game. And after playing three close games on the road, two of which went into overtime, the last thing this Blazers team wants is another close call. Look for Damian Lillard to set the tone right away, by finding Aldridge in the post and getting the ball out quickly to Matthews and Batum in transition. Lillard may score 20, but his impact Saturday will be felt distributing the ball. We are a tough team to beat when all of our starters are having fantastic outings. I'm calling 10+ assists for the reigning Rookie of the Month.
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
