Although the Trail Blazers found a way to sneak out of Cleveland with a win last month, they got beat up on the boards, losing the rebound battle 48-41. A lot of that had to do with Anderson Varejao grabbing a game-high 17 boards. Fortunately for Portland, Varejao will not be in uniform this time around as he's sidelined with an injury. That means it's up to JJ Hickson and LaMarcus Aldridge to patrol the paint and clean up every loose ball in site. By controlling the glass, the Blazers can limit the Cavs to just one shot each possession, push tempo on the fast break, and add second-chance points to the scoreboard.

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