Gameday Open Thread: Blazers vs. Clippers

Another nationally televised game. Remember when most folks complained we never played on national TV? Anyway, the Portland Trail Blazers are in Los Angeles to play the Clippers (late ~7:40 tipoff). The Clippers are playoff-bound, and Portland has always had trouble beating them in LA. Will the Blazers make this competitive?

Injury Report: As noted during yesterday's broadcast, Nolan Smith stayed home with a left ear infection.

Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge will not play due to a "sprained left elbow" and that reserve forward J.J. Hickson will start in his place. Aldridge is day-to-day.

The usual rules apply:

1. No swearing | 2. No pictures | 3. Be Nice!
4. Don't discuss unofficial game streaming.

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