    What are the keys to this game? What do we need to do to get the win. I think we need another big game from LA. Wesley and Dre need to have good games, moving and shooting the ball! Who will be key off the bench (even though the bench is limited)?  Keeping our shooting % around 47 percent should give us the win, as well as keeping the Bucks around 40 percent. Defense, Defense, Defense through out the games , especially in the 4th.  What are your thoughts!

    I agree that defense is going to be a big part of victory tonight. The Bucks are a decent defensive team, and Bogut is going to be a challenge in the middle. We have to nail our jumpers!

    Tough news and it couldn't have came at a worse time. Andrew Bogut is one of the most offensively skilled big men in the NBA. Marks, Aldridge, and Cunningham will have their hands full tonight.

    Don't double team Bogut, LA can take him. Tough man to man D.
    Keep Jennings under 20
    don't give Mbah a Moute any easy baskets. BOX OUT!

    Its not even all about Man to Man D its attacking the basket and getting them into foul trouble he cant hurt us from the bench. We may not have a size advantage but we have the speed and heart short handed or not we are better and we need to play like it. Attack the hoop and MAKE YOUR FREE THROWS.

    Its not all about defense and we cant just settle for the outside shots we have to attack the hoop and get them into foul trouble. And of course we have to MAKE THE FREE THROWS!!!!!!

    It will be nice to have Nico back, but I see no reason to start him, yet. The way things were he was coming off the bench because Wes earned the right to be a starter and Nico has not shown us any improvement in his game yet. I say stay with Rudy until Nico shows he is going to be consistent. See, with Rudy starting I can almost guarantee he will contribute 10-15 points per game as well as around 5 assists and some steals. The advantage to Nico without his offence is his defensive ability, but right now the way things stand, we NEED scorers on the floor! Just my thoughts. Thanks for the update Sarah ;-)

    peace out,

    No Jennings for the Bucks tonight so it won't even matter. http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5939551
    I am a fan of the Blazers and epic winning, such as the Friday game vs Lakers

    not the best news, but better news than The Vikings have to offer today.


    Big key is, Home Court Advantage.
    The Bucks are 3-10 this year agaisnt west teams, and we have aldready beat them Nov2 at their home.. We will have the one up if we can score with ease, they are only averging 89.1 pointspergame.

    I read this however......
    The Blazers are exactly what their record states, a .500 team.  They’re 9-3 at home and they play a consistent gameplan of defense, offensive rebounding, and a slow pace.  These factors coupled with the Bucks ranking dead last in the league in field goal percentage at 41.3% make for an aggressively low set total of 181.
    If Jennings is out, then they might shoot better.
    I am a fan of The Blazers ♂, the £-Train, and of course, The ¤ King. ™

    Get out in transition, making Bogut run.  LA is the far superior athlete.  Who can get who into foul trouble first?  Neither team can win tonights game without their big.  Nic, Dre, Wesley, and even Rudy need to have an attacking mentality while on the floor.  Protect the defensive glass and limit TOs

    Jennings is out.  He was what killed us last season in Milwaukee.  Just play hard defense.  LMA needs to prove he's an All-Star this season and keep Bogut to no more than 20.  I expect Mathews to be the leading scorer tonight.

    This game is going to be televised live on primetime tv in Australia. I beleive they switched to this game due to the 2 Aussies playing. Go Patty, I hope he gets a handful of minutes or more; already setting the recorder and enforcing the no talk during sports rule with the good wife. Just add beer and its Merry Xmas come early, oh and a win would be good to!

    Is Nostradamus in the house? We completely took Bogut out of the game and ran the Bucks wild. Rudy and Wesley were attacking the rim at every chance and either getting to the line, making a layup, or finding an open man for an easy two. I had a blast at the game tonight and just love seeing the guys hustle, play together, and most of all RUN! We are a team that thrives in transition.

    It was a great game to watch, especially LA's sick dunks tonight.
    P.S. anyone know what the music was played when the Blazers were stretching in the tunnel before they came out to warm up?

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
