Gameday Open Thread: Timberwolves vs. Trail Blazers

Interesting game tonight. The Minnesota Timberwolves arrive in Portland to play the Trail Blazers (7:10 tip-off). Minnesota is on the rise, but is going to be tired tonight. On the other hand, the Blazers are reeling and need this win. This is the first MIN/POR game that's relevant to both teams in.... forever? A long time, at least. Can the Blazers come out strong and show they're still playoff contenders?

Injury Report: Kurt Thomas is out due to his concussion, according to Mike Tokito of The Oregonian.

The usual rules apply:

1. No swearing | 2. No pictures | 3. Be Nice!
4. Don't discuss unofficial game streaming, even when the game is on ESPN.

And, of course, have fun. Go Blazers! -- Tim
