    Utah looks for revenge and their 2nd win over the Trail Blazers in the Rose Garden on Thursday night. There is word that Andrei Kirelinko and CJ Miles could be out for the Jazz, which would be a major boost for the Blazers, esp. considering Miles dominated us back in November. As of right now, there is still no word on whether Joel or Brandon will play.

    To win, it's simple. Portland must run the show through Aldridge, keep playing zone defense to minimize their back cuts for easy layups, and run on the fast break. Even though we fumbled a few passes last game in Utah while trying to run, it really gets the fans excited and translates into easy points.

    I like the new fast paced style tempo! Aldridge is dominating and Portland must be relieved to be back at the Rose Garden. Utah always makes me nervous when they play the Blazers, a fourth quarter lead never feels comfortable enough. Would love to see Camby or Pryz tonight to protect the glass; rebounds are always important to Portland like you said running the fast break is key to keep the crowd excited and confidence sky high. Go Blazers!

    I'm going to be at the game!!! It's my first game in years )first since they installed the HD jumbo-tron screens, so my dorky side is excited about that, lol! 

    As for the game, I hope LA can have another aggressive, monster game and keep putting up those gorgeous numbers. Also, I would like to see Wes have a good game, and bounce back from the not-so-hot performance vs. Den. But yeah, pretty much what you said DH. Let's go BLAZERS!!!!
    I am a fan of Lillard, Batum, Lopez, LA and T Rob taking it to other teams!

    I been saying this since we won.  HOLD DARREN WILLIAMS TO LOWER THAN 10 ASSISTS!!  That should be one of Rice's keys.  Everytime Darren doesn't have 10 or more assists, the Jazz lose.  We held him to 6 last time.  I can live with him scoring 20,30, 40 or even 50 as long as we eliminate the other team.  The offense runs through him and no one else can really play point on that team.  You stop him, you win.

    Also, making FTs and playing aggressive never hurts.

    I would like to see Brandon Roy, and Prizz come back tonight.  The catch would be for both of them to come off the bench.  I like the starting 5 being miller, aldridge, matthews, camby, and batum.  I think our bench needs some firepower so Prizz, roy, fernandez, mix it up with the 5 starters.  Right now our bench has a hard time scoring and with prizz, roy, and fernandez I think it would strengthen the whole bench.

    Should be an exciting game just like the one we saw a few days ago. No Miles and AK47 would be a huge boost for us but stopping DWill is still key for a Blazers win.

    If we have more bodies available tonight great, if not we can win with what we got. Hoping for a bounce back game from Wes as well.  GO BLAZERS!

    Official E-Mail word:

    Brandon Roy (left knee) and Joel Przybilla (left ankle) are out for tonight's game vs. Utah. Marcus Camby (right ankle) is a game time decision.

    I don't want Camby to come back tonight. Sorry, but Aldridge plays 10 times better when he knows its up to him to score and grab rebounds. And when Aldridge has a HUGE GAME, its more than likely we shall win. Love Camby, but it's the truth.

    At the end of the last Jazz game , we witnessed Deron Williams get 2 easy layups and 2 three pointers at the 1 min mark in the 4th. Thats 10 EASY points. Shut that down and you got yourself a game.

    Glad Camby came back..20 boards? Are you serious? Guy still has it!
    Wesley and LA are our new dynamic duo
    Finally, looks like last year's sweep by the Jazz was a FLUKE!

    Was at this game and came away with two prevailing thoughts...

    1)  was unusually quiet for a Utah game.  This team...OUR team, needs our support more than ever right now

    2)  in every major contributing category, the Blazers had a leader (or two)...Camby with 20 boards, Miller with his double digit dimes, and BOTH Wesley and LA in 
         scoring department.  Truly a recipe for success in this league.  Two of these four contributors (to the recipe) are believed to be cornerstones now, while the
         other two will be needing their shoes filled by someone else (sooner or later).  The direction of this franchise is beginning to become more clear, and on this
         particular night, in the RG, I was treated to a four star meal.
