Finally, the Portland Trail Blazers return home. Tonight is the end of a ten-game stretch where the Blazers traveled between every single game. They arrived home late last night after a disastrous night in Sacramento. Unfortunately, Dallas is early in their road trip, and are rested and waiting for them. After three straight losses, Portland really needs a win before they face the back-to-back onslaught of the Spurs and Raptors. Can they take care of business against a very bad Mavs team? We’ll see.
The Blazers hope to see the return of Al-Farouq Aminu tonight, but Evan Turner won’t play, according Casey Holdahl.
Evan Turner (left ankle) will not play tonight, Al-Farouq Aminu (back contusion) will warm up before the team decides if he plays— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) December 22, 2016
Sticking with the tradition of Christmas music related to the opponent, let’s pick an actual, current, popular singer. A foreign concept for me! Demi Lovato was born in Dallas, and I don’t feel like going through her entire bio. It’s not hard to find it. Anyway, here she is doing a cover of the last song you’d expect, Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime”. Enjoy the gloriousness of the concept.
