Trail Blazers @ Raptors Game Thread


During Portland's 92-74 win over Toronto in December, the Trail Blazers set a then-NBA record for most 3-point attempts without a make, 20. If they shoot that poorly again, don't expect a similar result. There's definitely no problem with letting them fly from beyond the arc, but if it's apparent the shot isn't falling early on, it's on the team to show discipline and move away from the long jumpshot and force the action inside to Aldridge and Hickson who have been beats in the paint lately. Whether its spin moves in the post of putbacks off of offensive rebounds, those two are making life miserable for their counterparts down low. If the Trail Blazers don't fall in love with the 3 and can win both the rebounding battle and points in the paint, they will be 2-0 on this Eastern swing.

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