15 Thoughts vs. Rockets 11/6

A 1-3 start is not really what we were expecting from this year, but with that brutal opening schedule, it’s hard to really be surprised.  The team has looked good at times and horrific at others, especially defensively.  And actually the offense has been nothing to brag about either.  We’ve seen little movement from the team and too much gunning from Travis Outlaw to ever really get into a rhythm.  Here’s the laymen’s solution…only let Roy and Aldridge touch the ball and we win!  Well, Rudy can spot up in the corner as our only reliable outside shooter. 

Ok, enough ranting and on to tonight’s 15!

1.  Facing 5th straight elite Western Conference team.  +1 Rockets
2.  Fantasy impact on my team:  Yao, T-mac, Scola, Roy, and Rudy.  +5 Kellex
3.  Tribute to “Duck” tonight with Kersey in the building.  +1 Blazers
4.  Artest vs. Roy tonight?  +1 Rockets
5.  Points allowed per game comparison = -13 for Houston.  +1 Rockets
6.  ESPN listing Oden as the starting center on the depth chart.  +1 Hope
7.  Home cookin’.  +1 Blazers
8.  Return of Aaron Brooks, a Duck that actually made an NBA roster.  +1 Ernie Kent’s Job
9.  Thought of the Blazer Jam Squad making their first appearance.  -5 Fans
10.  Steve Francis’ jacket.  +1 This Country
11.  Yahoo’s “roster report” not listing Rafer Alston at ALL.  +1 Blazers & DWI Funding
12.  Nate McMillan about to explode.  +1 Blazers
13.  Sitting behind Oklahoma City in the standings.  +1 Blazers
14.  Coach Adelman feeling the history.  +1 Blazers
15.  The current "trio" of the NBA:  T-mac, Yao and Artest.  +1 Rockets

Totals:  Blazers 6    Rockets 4    Kellex 5    Hope 1    Fans -5    Ernie Kent 1    This Country 1

Predicted Winner:  Blazers

Ahhh yeah. Rudy going off after that key miss at the end of the game. Priceless!

I think we're about due for a Rudy dunk like we saw over and over in pre-season and in the Olympics.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
