Perhaps we'll shake off the doldrums tonight? The Portland Trail Blazers head to The Big Easy to play the New Orleans Hornets (Early 5:10pm tip-off). The Blazers obviously hope for a Big Easy win tonight after a few stinging home losses. Can the Blazers, featuring newly minted All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge, get back in the win column? [I sure hope so, because I'll be helping moderate the meltdown otherwise.]
Injury Report: Nothing new for the Blazers. The Hornets are still missing Eric Gordon, along with Carl Landry (sprained left knee), Jarrett Jack (bruised left knee) and, a late scratch, Chris Kaman (sprained left ankle, according to Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune).
