Trail Blazers @ Heat Game Thread
While the Heat are the defending NBA Champs and hold one of the league's top records at home (22-3), they are still vulnerable in the post and the Trail Blazers have arguably the best post scorer in the game in LaMarcus Aldridge. And LA has been especially dominant over the court of this six-game road trip, averaging 27 points, on 59% shooting from the field (49-83 FG), 10 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. When the Blazers stunned the Heat in Portland back on January 10th, it was Aldridge who had another monster performance, racking up 20 points and 15 rebounds which allowed Portland's three-point shooters plenty of wide-open looks. Portland must first look inside against Miami if they want the season sweep.
