    Trail Blazers (33-47) At Clippers (54-26)

    What To Watch For

    Lillard's 3-Point Record
    After connecting on four 3-pointers Sunday afternoon in Denver, Damian Lillard has tied Damon Stoudamire's single-season franchise record of 181 made 3-point field goals. Mighty  Mouse accomplished this feat during the 2004-05 season where he went 181-of-490 from downtown -- a 36.9% shooting percentage. Currently, Lillard is shooting nearly the exact same percentage from beyond the arc, as he's made his 181 3's in 491 attempts. Dame has two games left to hit just one 3-pointer, and considering he's played in 80 games this year and has converted at least one 3-pointer in 70 games, I like his chances to break the record over the course Also, there's only been one occurrance this year of Damian failing to make a 3-point field goal in back-to-back games and that took place right before the All-Star Break when the Trail Blazers were facing off against the Magic and Hornets.

    Limit Turnovers
    While a higher-than-average amount of turnovers is to be expected when a team like the Trail Blazers are playing so many young players, they still need to take care of the basketball. Against Denver, Portland gave it away 21 times, and the playoff teams like the Nuggets and Clippers, will make you pay. Against the Nuggets, Portland was sloppy with the basketball during the first 12 minutes of action and fell behind by 16 point heading into the second quarter. Although the Blazers fought their way back to close the gap to as little as two, the first quarter damage proved to be too big of a deficit.

    Let's see some on the ball pressure. Switch on the screens and attack the passing lanes. We don't want Lob City getting airborne.

    Like sands through the hourglass, so are these losses in our lives.

    I don't care that we are losing. Well I do, actually, very much, but I am amazed at our bench. Will Barton has been insane. He can rebound score, pass. Claver is a little on and off, but I like him. Pavlovic has been good as well. He is driving and kicking a bit and hitting threes and flashy layups.

    I am a fan of Raymond Felton. Haha, seriously though I'm a fan of Batum's Lobs and JJ's Slams.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    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...
