    If the Kings double LA, which Trail Blazer will have the biggest night from 3?
    Patty Mills (6)
     18%
    Wesley Matthews (14)
     42%
    Rudy Fernandez (7)
     21%
    Nicolas Batum (6)
     18%



    While the records may indicate this one should be a blowout, there are a few reasons why Portland should be on alert tonight. First, this is their 7th game in 11 nights. Aldridge is logging the second most minutes in the NBA and without Camby, the Blazers must tap into their bench for production. Andre barely played at all on Saturday night, and is another game-time decision tonight, meaning Wesley and Rudy got a lot of extra run. If Portland can't find a way to bring the energy against Sacramento, it could be another close call.

    Also, the Kings played the Blazers tough in Arco last week. If it weren't for a few tip-jam putbacks from LaMarcus, Portland could be looking at a loss right now. But, right now, the Blazers are finding ways to win. As long as Przybilla continues to come in and set great screens, freeing up our shooters, the offense should be in rhythm. Look for the Kings to continue their strategy of defending Aldridge, constantly sending double teams and making Portland beat them from downtown. Let's just hope Wesley, Rudy, and Nic are on point from beyond the arc.

    I'd like to see a better first half get our game plan established early, let some of our big minute guys get a little more rest before the big Celtics game later this week. 

    Maybe asking for a "easy" win is asking for too much this season but a decisive win would be nice for the players as well as the fans.

    Patty. Mills.

    He's been a roller coaster lately, but that means since he's been struggling, he's due for a big game shooting the ball. Beno will also pay him no attention on defense either.

    Really?  Really Blazers?  The Kings?  Talk about a huge disappointment.  The only thing keeping me from not swearing is the fact LMA got an award tonight.  But even he played like crap tonight.

    SMH.  We didn't even play a good game.  Sac didn't either.  They suck, and we made them look like a playoff team.  NOT HARD TO WIN WHEN YOU DON'T PLAY ANY DAMN DEFENSE.   This better be a wake up call, and the Blazers owe us one BIG TIME.

    I liked the sideline interview with Brandon. That was kinda neat.

    The team looked tired.  The All-Star break can't come quick enough.

    @Herr...I couldn't disagree more.  I don't believe this team owes us ANYTHING.  I believe it enough that they collectively have been giving 100%, and that many have sacrificed their knees in the process.  Anyone who is anything less than proud of this team right now is going to be in the minority.  I don't believe there to be any other team in the league that could withstand the setbacks the Blazers have this season and still be well over .500.  Nobody.

    YES, exactly I think the same BDawg. Our team sometimes give more than 100 % and about last match this is sport even with easy opponents You can lose especially when our best active player LA score 9 points. I don't blame him, this kind of match sometimes happen that's all. We have to leave this behind and think about next matches and also wait for information about LA health . I red that he has problems with his sore :-(

    GO BLAZERS !!!

    Not a great time to decide to lose a game.
    With Jordan there and everything.......
    Its clear that no one could stop Evans, that kid has really got it.

    But again, Pryzbilla, not one field goal.
    I do believe that camby's absence is going to start taking effect.

    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...

    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...
