The Blazers have put two great games back to back with blowout wins over the Bulls and Kings. Now, they have a big one at Phoenix. This one is on KGW tonight with the Pregame at 5:30pm.
If the Blazers can a big win over the Suns...then they come home for three straight at the Rose Garden. They take on Sacramento, Miami and New Orleans on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
It's important to get some wins...because another five game road trip is looming in the next two weeks.
Rockets Coach Rick Adelman told me a few weeks ago that he likes the Blazers. He said at the time that people should give Greg Oden some time. Oden is certainly coming along well. Rick also said that if the Blazers could add a veteran they might explode on the scene.
You know, the Blazers just might explode anyway. They have looked good the past few weeks and are still coming together as a team.
It is a long season and the important thing is to build consistency and to stay healthy.
Check out the game tonight right here on KGW!
