    What is the biggest key to victory?
    Holding Charlotte Under 100 Points (4)
     11%
    Holding Charlotte Under 40 Paint Points (4)
     11%
    Getting 25+ Points From Aldridge (14)
     39%
    Get The Crowd Involved (8+ Point 1st Quarter Lead) (6)
     17%
    Ball Movement (20+ Assists) (8)
     22%

    Not even two weeks have passed and the Trail Blazers will already be welcoming back Dante Cunningham and Joel Przybilla to Portland and then a week later, Gerald Wallace gets his welcome in Charlotte. Funny how that works out sometimes. Although Portland has had their struggles since the Febraury 24th trade, they found a little rhythm in their victory over the Kings on Wednesday night. Aldridge was more assertive and the guys looked to be having more fun out there.

    For Portland to truly play to their potential, the defense needs to step up. Once again the Blazers gave up over 50 points in the pain and allowed the Kings to shoot over 50% from the floor. If Portland plays above their level of competition, Charlotte shouldn't come close to those numbers. The 'Cats score a 3rd worst 94 points per game and only average 44% shooting from the field. Get the crowd involved early, push the tempo and continue to ride the L-Train to victory. As LA goes, this team goes.

    I think we need to do everything on that list, if we do we'll win the game. We need to play like last nights 1st half, only 2 turnovers.
    I am a fan of The 1976 NBA championship over DrJ and the 76ers, and also of having 2 players in the greatest 50 NBA players.

    Ball movement.  Getting everyone involved obviously gives us more options on the offense.  However, defense needs to win this game for us.  Great defense creates offense.

    Agree with Herr.  Defense will be key.  And getting Rudy back healthy would help too!

    How about STARTING Gerald? His efficiency is way better as a starter and Batum's shot will not be affected if he comes off the bench.

    Toby's keys to game:

    - Run it! Score 20 fast break points.

    - Tighten up the D, I want at least 5 blocked shots

    - Get greedy, attack the basket. 20+ FT attempts

    1. The bench should score at least 40 points.
    2. Shooting guards unite; hold Stephen Jackson to 20 points and/or combine for 30+
    3. Perimeter D. Keep the Bobcats out of the paint.
    4. Keep the L-Train rolling; 25+ points from our favorite PF.
    5. All of Toby's keys.

    I'd like to see Crash get more playing time as well. Injury and old age are the only reasons to bench a former All-Star.

    i would say the 3 ball will be a big key to victory in this one, Aldridge and 3's.

    who is crash?

    Welcome back RR5!

    Yes it was a great win. I couldn't believe we were down by 5 at one point in the 2nd half, even trailed briefly in the 3rd before we blew them out for a 24 point win. It felt like the entire night if we could just hit a shot or two, the floodgates would open. And thanks to Patty Mills' trifectas we just dominated the final 18 minutes of action.

    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...
