This week should really help clear up the WC standings and where the Blazers are heading. We have four games this week. A tough away game against the Jazz
(but with a rare two days off before), a gimme against the 3-18 Bobcats
at home, a chance for a much needed road win against the Kings
, then an epic Saturday night showdown at the RG against the Nuggets
. I think we have a great shot at going 4-0. The jazz are tough at home, but we will be rested and Wesley is getting hot at the right time. Denver on Saturday night is a great situation for the Blazers as we have Friday off and they are on the last of a b2b2b having played the clips at home, the Lakers
at Staple and then travelling here where we should be 10-1. Plus, I’m staying at the same hotel the Nuggets are Friday night and I plan on calling all their rooms at 4AM and yelling "fire!"
So big week….we have a good shot at ending the week 16-8 and solidly in the WC second spot. Then what? The Thunder
at home Monday night 2/6 after a day off. Time to rock Blazers!
