    Injuries: For the Blazers, Noah Vonleh (right shoulder), Shabazz Napier (left hamstring) and C.J. Wilcox (right knee) will not play. For the Suns, Anthony Bennett (back strain) and T.J. Warren (back contusion) are questionable. Jared Dudley (left toe surgery rehab), Brandon Knight (left ACL tear), Davon Reed (left meniscus repair) and Alan Williams (right meniscus repair) is out

    Huge "MUST WIN" game for both teams heading down the stretch towards the preseason playoffs. "If the Blazers don't win this one, there is NO way they get to the magical #64Wins this season FAMS" says one Blazers insider. -Arizona Gazette

    Thought since you all want me to start taking over for the DarkWingDuck, I better step my creative juices up a bit. Adding graphics and special insider media quotes is no easy task.

    So why are we playing Phoenix twice in preseason AND then again on opening night? That seems a little ridiculous for half of our first 6 games to be against the same team. I kind of hope we get our asses kicked so we are pissed off on opening night.

    Meyers starting? Maybe it's a good thing the game won't be televised.
