    Which Pre-Season Game Are you Looking Forward To Most?
    Clippers (6)
     18%
    Jazz (15)
     44%
    Nuggets (8)
     24%
    Warriors (5)
     15%
    Portland's preseason schedule is highlighted by divisional foes, Denver and Utah, as they comprise 4 of the 7 total games. The Clippers, a preseason opponent for the past two seasons are back on the docket again and a home and home with the Warriors rounds out the 7 games. Now that the 2010-11 Pre-Season Schedule is released, which home game are you most excited about?

    Clippers-
    The Case: It'd be pretty sweet to see how Blake Griffin plays after missing an entire season. Its also the first preseason game of the year, which means its usually the best. Anyone remember the 08 game against the Kings when Rudy, Oden, and Martell went bananas? I can't wait to see the big fella make his return to the court.








    Jazz-
    The Case: Although it's preseason, playing this game at the Memorial Coliseum is awesome regardless. I was unfortunate enough to miss last year's game at the MC and hope I will be able to be there in person. Maybe we can wear the Rip City unis again?






    Nuggets-
    The Case: Got to love getting those competitive juices flowing early against divisional foes. Although, it is the last preseason game of the year, so there may not be a whole lot of the rotational players getting burn in.







    Warriors-
    The Case: JP put on a show last year on fan night , so why should preseason be any different? Also, anytime you play the Warriors, its a high-tempo, fast-paced affair with a lot of fast breaks and dunks. I love it it!

    I really want to see what Blake Griffin is made up of. Having witnessed Oden's injury struggles early on in his young career, I want a guy like Blake to come back healthy and succeed, too.

    I went with Utah just by a hair over the Clippers, ONLY because of the Memorial Coliseum factor. I think its awesome we are starting a tradition of paying homage to the 'Glass Palace'. Also, stealing Wesley Matthews from them doesn't hurt either. But man, seeing Greg back in action against LAC is going to be off the charts as well.

    Clippers! Opening Night (preseason)! The countdown has begun until Oden's wrath will be felt upon the rest of the NBA.

    If I could, I would go to the Utah game @ The MC! That is what I grew up with and that is the place that still holds the magic of the 77' team! I still remember that place just like it was yesterday :-)

    peace out,

    Ditto!  I voted Clippers simply because that game will be the first opportunity to see a full, healthy Blazer roster in action in over a year!  In particular, I am anxious to see GO and Griffin.  Curious to see BRoy play with that new body he's been working on too!  I could go on and on...EW will likely make his debut as well.  We haven't even had a chance to see him play yet (post collegiate career that is)

    I took my son to last years Phoenix game in the Coliseum.  The rush that came over me walking into that building again was indescribable.  A good percentage of fans sitting around me were sporting headsets and listening to the Schonz work his play-by-play magic!  Do what you need to do to be there for Utah this year!  Hopefully, Schonz will be allowed to repeat last years unforgetable performance.

    The last Denver Nuggets game. Rotations will start to kind of shape out for both teams by this time, players will get a little more playing time and it's also the last pre-season game before the real season starts.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
