    Trail Blazers (20-19) Vs Bucks (20-18)

    What To Watch For


    Early Lillard Offense
    Over the past few games, the Trail Blazers have been getting sporadic contributions from each of the starters. One game Damian Lillard goes off for 37, yet the other four have quiet performances. Another night, LaMarcus Aldridge is leading the way with another 30+ point night and Nicolas Batum adds in his usual stat-stuffing line, but the remaining three put up sub-par numbers. We know this team needs more help on the bench and that when this team was rolling was when all five starters played up to their level. And I think this all starts with Lillard. Normally you'd want your point guard to set up the offense first before looking for his own scoring opportunities, but lately, I've felt like Dame waits entirely way to long before getting into attack mode. Hopefully Lillard has a dynamic first quarter which will set the tone the rest of the way for his fellow starters.

    Take Care Of The Ball
    In their five-point loss to Cleveland, the Trail Blazers turned the ball over 19 times - five more then their seasonal average. To make matters worse, they were only able to force eight turnovers from the Cavaliers. On a night when the Blazers did not shoot the ball well from the field (31-79) or at the free-throw line (17-26), those 19 turnovers make it awfully difficult to win a ball game, regardless of the opponent. For the Trail Blazers to buck this four-game losing skid, they most keep their turnovers at least to their average of 14 a night and force just as many. On paper, the Blazers are the superior team, but by not creating easy scoring opportunities and being careless with the basketball are recipes for keeping any team in the game.

    I forget the name of the kid thats balling out of control for the Bucks. Sanders i think. That kid is worth pursuing. Blocks and boards. We better keep an eye on him or he'll demolish  us on the glass and throw shots into the fifteenth row.
    I am a fan of our new roster playing with and for eachother.

    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...
