15 Thoughts vs. Utah 12/11

We are now looking way past the debacle from Tuesday night and are officially on to tonight's match-up with the Utah Jazz!  It seems unfair that the Blazers go on an east coast swing for 5, come home for 1 and then head back out on the road 2 days later for a battle with a west coast power doesn't it? You might as well just call it a 7 game road trip.  Luckily for fans, they've shown a ton of poise in difficult situations this year and we're hoping the boys bounce back strong.

1.  After 1 loss at home, Accuscore hates the Blazers.  +1 Jazz
2.  Utah won 37 of 41 home games last year.  +1 Jazz
3.  No elite center for Oden to hide from!  +1 Blazers
4.  No Carlos Boozer!  +1 Blazers
5.  Waiting for Sheed's prediction...  +1 Blazers
6.  Portland is 0-5 when giving up 100.  Utah averages 100.2.  +1 Jazz
7.  Luckily Portland is only giving up 94 a game.  +1 Blazers
8.  Also haven't lost 2 in a row since the Jazz dealt them a loss in early Nov.  Toss Up
9.  Ahh, a new team photo of the Nu Skin Jazz Dancers+1 Utah's Marriage Laws
10.  Deron Williams vs....Blake?  Sergio?  +1 Jazz
11.  Utah shoots just 34% from deep.  +1 Blazers
12.  But they have Kyle Korver.  +1 Jazz
13.  Milsap on fire lately!  +1 Jazz
14.  LaMarcus on fire lately!  +1 Blazers
15.  No Stan Van Gundy-esque traps in the works?  Toss Up

Totals:  Blazers 6   Jazz 6   Marriage Law 1

Predicted Winner:  Blazers (**Updated** Thanks to Bust a Bucket)

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.
