Trail Blazers Vs Heat Game Thread


The Trail Blazers have won eight straight games at the Rose Garden and everyone knows when that place is rockin', Portland is very difficult to beat. While Miami boasts the East's best record (23-9), they are a pedestrian 7-6 away from the comforts of South Beach. Now the Blazers aren't fortunate enough to get the Heat on the second night of a back-to-back, but Miami still must play at Indiana Tuesday night then fly across country to the Rose City. Portland has two days off in-between games after playing five games in seven nights. The crowd is going to be amped up for this one as only the Lakers visiting town could create more of a frenzy then the defending World Champs. If the team comes out and feed's on the crowd's energy, the thought of playoff basketball becomes more of a reality.

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