If the last two games in Houston are any indication, fingernails will be chewed down to the nub across the state of Oregon tonight. The Blazers lost a pair of games by a grand total of 4 points in the Bayou City. So, the trend is that Portland is closer and closer each game. In fact, I'm leaning on Portland tonight. This is THE BIGGEST game to date...and the Blazers gotta come out with some spunk tonight, establish themselves early, and take it right to the rack to draw the Rockets "D" in. They can't rely on Roy all night....it's gotta be a total team effort if they are to return home on a happy note. This entire city is gonna go beserk if it happens, and I can't wait to see the overnight ratings of this one in the morning.
Chat at you after the game with my impressions of what took place!
