Portland is 2-0 this year against Minnesota, but that hasn't stopped Nikola Pevovic from making life miserable down low on the blocks for the Trail Blazers' bigs. Back on November 23rd, Pek dropped 18 points and 10 rebounds and followed that up with a monster 21 and 15 performance last month in Minneapolis. But handling a tough center shouldn't be new for Rip City as they just got done with a home-and-home against Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, and co. The winning formula? Double-down on the post, forcing their outside shooters to beat you from deep. Thankfully for Portland only one member of the Wolves shoots 35% or better from deep -- Derrick Williams (.353) -- and only three active players are connecting on upwards of 30% from distance -- JJ Barea (.349), Luke Ridnour (.331), Alexy Shved (.316).
So Rip City, what are your keys to victory?Continue>>>
