Game 68 Preview: Blazers vs. Kings

Game Time:  7:00 p.m. Pacific  TV:  KGW

Didn't we just see these guys two games ago?  Indeed we did.  So the detailed preview of them is here, with the following edits:

1.  This isn't precisely back-to-back against Sacramento, but it's close enough.  It's hard to beat any team twice in such a short span because the second game they tend to be more ready for you than you are for them.

2.  This is doubly so since their two stars, Tyreke Evans and Carl Landry, had decent-but-not-amazing outings in the last game.  At home they're going to want to exact revenge.  The Blazers, in particular Nicolas Batum and the bigs, better be ready.

3.  Sacramento can score more than they showed on Tuesday but they're also capable of giving up far more.  Some easy offense would be appreciated...a good idea in fact.

4.  The Blazers have a great track record this year on the second night of back-to-backs but they also just ran hard against Golden State.  Those folks who got fewer minutes last night--I'm looking at Batum, Webster, Fernandez, and Bayless--would do us a great service by showing up with energy, focus, and production tonight.
