The Portland Trail Blazers and Sacramento Kings tip off in a surprisingly-important early-season game. The Kings will surely want to show that they’re good enough to beat Portland on the road, and the Blazers want to restore some dignity after their butt-whupping in Los Angeles Wednesday Night. One advantage for the Blazers: The Kings played at home last night, and traveled to Portland afterward.
Al-Farouq Aminu is out for the Blazers with an strained left calf. Before the game, Terry Stotts said Aminu will be out for at least a couple weeks. For the Kings, Anthony Tolliver has been on the injured list, but played last night.
Did you know that old-school country singer Lynn Anderson is from Sacramento? I had no idea. Here she is singing a country classic, “(I Never Promised You A) Rose Garden”.
But a whole new generation accidentally learned her music when they went to a dance club in the ‘90s, after Messiah released “Temple of Dreams”, sampling Anderson’s vocals from “Rose Garden”, along with a few moments from the movie Running Man.
