    I know it's a little early, but we haven't had a game in what seems like weeks!

    Black Friday looks like it could be a huge day for the franchise. We've got Joel Przybilla possibly making his return, which still looks like it will happen, but he was admitted to the hospital this morning after waking up extremely sick. Also, Portland could see the return of Brandon Roy, who hasn't played since he left November 13th's game against these same Hornets in the 3rd quarter with a knee injury. And finally, we are welcoming back Coach Monty Williams and Jarrett Jack back to the Rose City.

    Oh yea, the Hornets are pretty good to. It's going to be a good one.

    Yes, this is a huge game in many ways. The biggest thing for me is being able to stop Chris Paul. With our lack of big men right now Paul will be able to run wild on the court without some big help from the back court. I feel like Andre can't keep up with Paul for the whole game so possibly Matthews or Batum matching up with him?

    Tim..? Any relation to Tom, long lost brother? hahaha.
    Forget about chris paul, the only player that will be able to keep up with him is Armon, so i am eagar to see if Nate can recognie that, and how he handles it.
    The Hornets have one offensive weapon that is going to be hard to shut down, and that ladies and gentlemen is David West.
    West is one of the most lethal PF in the game today, he can shoot ever so nicely, he can battle in down low, he can snag boards all game, he's got pump fakes, layins, and free throws. If we can get someone on him and keep him to 10pts or less up untill the 2nd half, we might be able to pull it off.
    However what i would like to see, as i have mentioned before several times, BATUM!!!!
    Nic needs to show why he is so valuable, show everyone why we cant trade you for Iggy, do something stop playing on the parameter. He can box out guys and fight the ball in down low, i dont understand why he doesnt play at his full potential every game, why is that?

    What the hell is that supposed to mean? When you meet Asians do you always ask if they are related because we all look the same to you or something??

    I think Blazers will win.  The Rose Garden will be FILLED with energy tomorrow even before the game starts, and whenever the Blazers play with energy they normally win.  Also, New Orleans is starting to come back down to Earth.

    If BRoy and the Pryz return, this is a win. If not.....the Hornets have lost 2 in a row, and will be very motivated to not go home 1-3 out of their first real road trip/test. Energy? I think both teams will have a ton! But maybe being away from family will bring down the morale for the Hornets. Either way, I expect a good game :)

    From Oregonlive (Jason Quick):

     Brandon Roy said he will play tonight for the Trail Blazers, but center Joel Przybilla was not as sure after Friday morning's shootaround.

    Roy, who has missed the past three games with a sore left knee, said the 12 days of rest he received since his last game have calmed the pain and swelling in his knee. Coach Nate McMillan said Roy will start at shooting guard, but his playing time will be limited, most likely to no more than 35 minutes.

    This is pretty good news I would say, but I would like to Joel get in there for at least a little bit. I hope Roy can make the most of those 35 minutes tonight. Either way, I think we need Wes and Batum to step it up - not just tonight, but on a more consistent basis. 

    GO BLAZERS - subdue the Hornets!

    hahaha nice.

    Batum needs to shut down Ariz Please. Tonight. I want to see this guy get some dunks in on these fools. Aldridge workin the double dub. But its gonna be up to him or Camby to stop West.
    Idk if Joels feelin better yet, but its been a while since ive seen the Eraser do some damage.

    Jerryd Bayless is gonna take us down once again.

    Wait, what? The Hornets did what? If anything, that trade could bring that first round pick from N.O. down a few notches, like to the 25th pick instead of the 27th.

    Just an odd game. We were rocking in the 1st quarter, then nothing the rest of the way. I still think the team is lacking an identity after all of the lineup changes and available players due to injuries. Defense was fine, as evidenced by holding them under 100 points, but the O struggled. I'd really like to see much more out of Batum, whether it be off of cuts or letting him create with the ball in his hands. He's too talented to not use.

     Roy was super and rest of team ...

    maybe they thought that when he comes back they can stand and watch the game ???

    what about rebounding ? last matches we were strong in this, 

    and one more think and question : Hornents are so strong or PTB are so weak ? 

    try to answer, after big loses with Lakers, Jazz and Hornets my feelings are bad

    Nate should make some changes in tactics or something else to change the style specially with strong opponents

    I am waiting for Joel and win !!!

    GO BLAZERS !!!

    they just stood and wanted the game to come to them, i mean come on you gotta really fight for it. I like how monty set up his defense against us, he's pretty good at that. Its kinda like nates system. Roy he is super star the game comes to him, other guys they just shot the ball and hoped to get lucky i mean they were just doing same thing over again... nobody could really drive in, too many jump shots Nd we lost so many boards.. plus TO's like they looked confused, scared of something.. maybe the thought that p. allen watching them.. didnt really like armons game.. he needs to move the ball quicker.. a lot of times we just stood dribbling and waiting for some1 to get open u gotta open that guy nd find him if ur a point G.

    Lettin CP3 get 6 boards, thats working hard....(shakes head)
    Cant allow that to happen, PG's are the most interesting position to watch this year, all over the league different guards are doing WAY different things. Rose in Chi throwing up 33 points, in multiple games, WOW.
    Westbrook doin dirty work with offensive rebounds and helping his team rise over Boston without the head of the team, Kevin Durant.
    Rondo, becoming the first playing in NBA history to have 80+ assists in his first 4-5 games. WOWOWW
    Things are going great for PG's, DMW in Utah, beating the Lakers last night, Man.
    Nash always doin his thing, even without Amare his team has managed a couple of wins.
    And yet with all this news of PG's being incredible active, WE allow CP3 to basically Dominate the game with, 6 shots?
    ha. we gotta be more aware.
