The Pre-Funk: Blazers at Cavaliers 12/11



The all day coverage you need to go into tonight's contest.  We're just making sure you're prepared to drop that extra knowledge on the brosephs to get you another smidgen of respect.

Party Attendees...

Yahoo's team report for the Cavaliers and their recent struggles sounds oddly similar to some other team we follow very closely...
Once again, it was the same old problems for the Cavs -- fast-break points (18) and turnovers (20) -- that proved costly.

"That's been our Achilles' heel in a lot of our losses, especially as of late," Brown said. "We are paying the price for not being sharp in those two areas."
They managed to throw in fast-break points, turnovers and Achilles in the same report while not talking about the Portland Trail Blazers.  Hats off guys!

Whenever the Blazers play teams with hall of fame type players like LeBron or Kobe, I refuse to dig deep and over analyze.  We can talk schemes, weaknesses, keys to the game and all that garbage, but really you have no control over what James is about to do.  If he goes off, life sucks.  If he struggles, life is grand.  You can't control a player of his caliber, you just have to hope he doesn't blow up for 50/8/8.

On the Blazers side, you need Roy to match LeBron as closely as he can and then hope your below average role players step up.  That's it.  No extra garbage.  No wasting time.  Hope LeBron doesn't have a monster game in front of a nationwide ESPN audience, and hope "your" Blazers role players step waaaaaaaay up.

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.
