NBA: Sacramento Kings at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

The Portland Trail Blazers’ monster road trip comes to an end tonight, with a visit to the Sacramento Kings. Although they have played fewer games this season, the Kings have just one more loss than the Blazers to this point. This game will be a measuring stick for both teams.

However, neither team will be perfectly healthy for this contest. For Sacramento, Rudy Gay and Omri Casspi are out. Former Blazers guard Arron Afflalo is, well, I have no idea. For the Blazers, Al-Farouq Aminu is out tonight. However, *Evan Turner is also out tonight,* after rolling his ankle in practice. He was wearing a walking boot today.

Since the Blazers are visiting the Kings tonight, it’s only right to listen to a Christmas song from The King, Elvis Presley. Here is 43 minutes and 18 seconds of some of his best Christmas music. Because, why not? This is being posted an hour before tip, anyway.
