    I'm very hopeful that we win this one but in reference to the poll question: I want us to show that we're getting better and therefore I'd like to see us take two of these three games on this road trip. That being said, I just don't see us beating either the Jazz or Warriors on their home floors. Let's hope our team proves me wrong and for sure let's not lose a trap game against the Kings.

    As I used to live in Sacramento and attended Kings games, I have a soft spot for that franchise. Let's take it easy on them and only beat them by 20 some points.

    I went with 2 road wins this trip. I know. I know. Wishful thinking. I'll be happy with 1 win. Hoping they put together some good games. They get a couple days off on this trip so maybe they can steal a game?

    How does this work with teams Playing on the road on Thanksgiving weekend when they play on Friday in Oakland then have 2 days off and play in Salt Lake on Monday? Those destinations are pretty close? Do you fly back on Friday night and spend a day at home? Or just go to Salt Lake and spend 2 days off there?
    I know if we are talking about Lillard he has ties to both places but what about the rest of the team?

    Edit- Or can you answer that kind of question. If not it's all good.

    So did I. Why dream if it's not about the Blazers winning every game?

    Dreams have value. Dreams are just shapable goals with the right mindset. ;)

    It's weird to say this, but...
    This is a big game.

    We've proven we're a top team at home, so playing better on the road is this team's highest priority. That needs to start asap. The Kings have talent, but are basically in shambles. We need to win this game!

    I was wondering as well. I think they should go straight to SLC on Saturday morning. Get used to the altitude and focus on just basketball without any distractions. They have another long homestand after the Jazz where they can see their family.

    I agree it is a big game. It will most certainly not be an easy one. The Kings are desperate for a win. I hate playing desperate teams. And like you said, they have talent.

    Will we actually guard Harrison Barnes this time?

    They make you fly in a sack? Do they check you through at luggage claim?

    As long as Harrison Fucking Barnes doesn't score another season high against us, I like our odds.
