Trail Blazers @ Bulls Game Thread


This game hinges on the play of the Blazer backcourt: Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews. Chicago has been starting Nate Robinson and Marco Belinelli. And while those two can certainly score the rock -- combining for 52 points Monday night against Denver -- neither will be confused for an All-Defense member, which is where Lillard and Matthews can take over the game. Before his 8-point outing, on 2-10 shooting, in Milwaukee, Dame had scored 20 or more in nine of his last 10 games and Wes is coming off a 28-point performance in Milwaukee in which he hit a season-high seven 3's, so both players will be coming into the Windy City ready and rollin. But this game will be won on the defensive end of the floor, like many of them are when you tangle with the Bulls. Portland must lock down Nate and Marco and not allow them free reign in the paint. If Lillard and Matthews can keep their counterparts under 35 combined points, it will bode well for the Blazers' chances of getting win No. 1 on this road trip.

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