The Blazers' home stand continues tonight against the Sacramento Kings, a team the Blazers beat last week 94-90 in overtime. Since then the Blazers haven't lost, and the Kings dropped a game to the Golden State Warriors.
The Nets on paper:
Starting five: Jason Thompson, Donte Greene, DeMarcus Cousins, Beno Udrih,Tyreke Evans
Off the bench: Samuel Dalembert, Omir Casspi, Jermaine Taylor, Carl Landry, Eugene Jeter
The Blazers' strategy stays the same: They need to slow down 2nd year guard Tyreke Evans. They will also need solid contributions on the glass from Joel Pryzbilla and Dante Cunningham.
LET'S GET RICH
To date: 18-15-2.
