15 Thoughts vs. Chicago 1/12


Hello Chicago!  Portland heads over to the “windy city” to take on the Bulls in what ESPN is declaring as a good match-up.  Personally, I’m going with an easy win for Portland, and not just because I run a “Blazer” blog, but because the Bulls just aren’t that good.  They seem to have a ton of talent, but also seem to be poorly coached.  I love me some Vinny, but this team is a mess defensively and still can’t decide who they want to be offensively.  Should be a fun one!  I doubt we’ll see the 40 point blowout we saw in the RG a few weeks ago, but it could easily be 20.

1.  The 1st of a weak 4 game road swing.  Toss Up
2.  ESPN Accuscore with some east coast bias.  +1 Bulls
3.  The Bulls just lost to the Thunder.  -1 Bulls
4.  And the Timberwolves.  At home.  -1 Bulls
5.  Chicago will have no answer again for Portland’s towers.  +1 Blazers
6.  Bench play!  +1 Blazers
7.  Battle of the rookie PG vs. the savvy vet.  Toss Up
8.  Roy vs. Gordon.  +1 Blazers
9.  More obnoxious, Tyrus or Joakim?  Toss Up
10.  Chicago gives up 102 pts/game.  Not good against Portland.  +1 Blazers
11.  Seriously, someone find me better hair than Vinny Del Negro’s.  +1 Vin
12.  OK, Nocioni’s is close.  Toss Up
13.  There is still a statue of “His Airness” out front though.  +1 Bulls
14.  And Benny the Bull is fantastic.  Blaze, please take note.  -1 Blaze
15.  Game possibly interrupting Monday’s Gossip Girl get-together?  +1 Embarrassing

Totals:  Blazers 4   Bulls 0   Vin 1   Blaze -1   Embarrassing 1

Predicted Winner:  Blazers

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.
