10 Thoughts vs. Utah 3/31

After a long weekend away, the playoff atmosphere inside the Blaze of Love crib is in full swing.  Jerseys are out, fitted caps are cocked, and the beer is plentiful.  When the Utah Jazz enter the Rose Garden arena tonight we’ll have sweat filled palms (hah) with some extra adrenaline as we find out if “your” Portland Trail Blazers are ready to become the perennial playoff contender we’ve all been waiting for.  Focus boys, focus.

1.  Deron Williams will be one motivated individual, again.  +1 Jazz
2.  Good thing Brandon Roy has been virtually unstoppable in March .  +1 Blazers
3.  ESPN Accuscore is feeling Portland at home as usual.  +1 Blazers
4.  Oh, and Utah hasn’t beaten a Western Playoff Contender on the road yet.  +1 Blazers
5.  Could we call this anything but a “must win”?  Toss Up
6.  Boozer is back plus “Blazer Killer” Okur is always a handful.  +1 Jazz
7.  Luckily LaMarcus is peaking down the stretch.  +1 Blazers
8.  How big will Blake’s performance need to be?  Toss Up
9.  Get ready for some playoff caliber basketball.  +1 Fans
10.  And I’m officially starting to get nervous.  -1 Me

Totals:  Blazers 4   Jazz 2   Fans 1   Me -1

Predicted Winner:

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.
