15 Thoughts vs. Philadelphia 1/14

This game is all about redemption.  Anyone else still hurting after last year’s meeting?  Remember that 25 point lead that wasn’t enough to put away the lowly Sixers?  Well this year isn’t going to be any easier as Philadelphia comes into this contest on a 4 game winning streak without big stud, Elton Brand.  Andre Iguodala has also re-emerged as the player he was last year averaging almost 24 points a game over his last 7.  Big performances are going to be needed again tonight from Blake and Outlaw if Portland thinks it is going to steal one from the hottest sports city in the nation.  (Not the people, the sports franchises.)

1.  ESPN Accuscore is seriously on crack these days.  +1 Sixers
2.  No Brand to work Aldridge is always nice.  +1 Blazers
3.  Blake vs. Miller.  +1 Sixers
4.  Oden vs. Dalembert.  Toss Up

7.  Who’s going to guard Brandon Roy?  +1 Blazers
8.  Who’s going to guard LaMarcus Aldridge?  +1 Blazers
9.  Check out this deal for Sixers dudes+1 Man Law
10.  Philadelphia has just 3 wins against +.500 teams.  +1 Blazers
11.  Batum up to the Iguodala challenge?  Toss Up
12.  Sixers Dance team Toss Up
13.  No word on Rudy yet.  +1 Mid-Season Injuries
14.  4 PM start time?  -1 Work Productivity
15.  Laughing at Philly fans that hated on Reid and McNabb.  -1 Philly

Totals:  Blazers 4   Sixers 2   law 1   Injuries 1   Work -1   Philly -1

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.
